What to Know About 2020 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Nissan Maxima, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Maxima could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Maxima maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2020 Nissan Maxima!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Maxima perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Nissan Maxima and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Maxima’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 Nissan Maxima? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Maxima battery. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan Maxima won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Nissan Maxima engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2020 Maxima. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Nissan Maxima.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Maxima suspension and steering 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. Components within your Nissan Maxima's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Maxima maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Maxima cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Nissan Maxima radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2020 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2020 Nissan Maxima Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Nissan Maxima. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 switch my Nissan Maxima to high mileage oil? 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Maxima, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
