Nissan Maxima Maintenance Schedule
Every vehicle has a manufacturer-recommended schedule for preventative maintenance and the Maxima is no different. Keeping up with your Nissan Maxima’s maintenance schedule is vital to making sure that you maintain the terms of your warranty and that your car continues running for well over 100,000 miles and beyond.
Here’s a handy list of everything you need to have done at individual mile markers.
At 7,500 Miles
Have you heard the adage that you should have your oil changed every 3,000 miles? That’s all well and good, but it’s way more often than you need to do it. In fact, the Nissan Maxima is designed to have its oil changed every 7,500 miles. Also at this interval, you should have your tires rotated and balanced as well as the air pressure and tread checked.
Finally, when you bring your car in every 7,500 miles, a courtesy inspection should be done. The technician will check your fluid levels, hoses and belts, brakes, and other aspects of your inner workings to ensure the car keeps running up to specs.
At 15,000 Miles
Your Nissan Maxima has two air filters, one in the engine and one in the cabin. The cabin air filter is important for keeping the air circulating within the car clean and free from contaminants and particulates. In short, it helps you to breathe!
You should have your cabin air filter changed every 15,000 miles. This is in addition to the regular 7,500-mile service you’ll have done at these intervals.
At 30,000 Miles
When your Maxima reaches 30,000 miles, you’ll want to have your engine air filter replaced. Your engine relies on clean air circulating through it to help it stay cool and run efficiently. With a gunked-up air filter, your engine has to work a lot harder and take on a lot more stress and strain, which can drastically reduce the miles per gallon you get in fuel efficiency and can even result in breakdowns or early wear on your interior parts.
At 105,000 Miles
Like we said, your Nissan is designed to run for well over 100,000 miles, with many reaching 200,000+.
When your car hits 105,000 miles, it’s time to have your spark plugs and your engine coolant replaced. You’ll also have your coolant system flushed at this level before refilling. Both are essential for keeping your engine running smoothly and efficiently.
