Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Nissan Maxima and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Maxima's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Nissan Maxima. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Maxima may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Maxima battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Maxima stranded. Your Nissan Maxima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Nissan Maxima engine. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Maxima, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Nissan Maxima.

Maintaining your Nissan Maxima steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Maxima steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Maxima's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Nissan Maxima maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan Maxima engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Maxima? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Nissan Maxima alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Maxima? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Maxima engines.
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
