US News & World Report has awarded the 2016 Nissan Maxima its highest ranking among upscale midsize cars. For the best performance and longevity of your Maxima, you’ll want to make sure that it receives quality care by scheduling maintenance at recommended intervals. This vehicle’s powerful engine and luxury interior make it an investment worth maintaining. By following you Nissan Maxima’s maintenance schedule, you’ll enjoy the best performance and safety it has to offer.
Of course, the Nissan Maxima comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The interior and exterior of the Maxima feature luxury-level perks that are on par with a high-end sports car even though experts classify it as a sporty sedan.
To protect your vehicle’s warranty and obtain the best performance, Nissan suggests that owners perform either Schedule 1 or Schedule 2 maintenance at set intervals.
Nissan Maxima Maintenence Schedule 1
Maintenance for your Nissan Maxima is scheduled at 3,750-mile intervals or every three months, whichever comes first. Schedule 1 track repairs are recommended for vehicles:
- Used for repeated short trips of 5 miles or less in normal weather conditions or 10-mile trips in colder temperatures.
- Used in stop-and-go traffic in hot weather or at low driving speeds for long distances.
- Used in dusty conditions, on rough and muddy roads, or on roads where salt is used frequently or in large amounts.
- Used to tow trailers, boats, or campers.
2016 Nissan Maxima Service Schedule 2
Service for your Nissan Maxima is performed at 7,500-mile intervals or every six months for Maxima sedans that are routinely driven on the highway at higher speeds and under normal weather conditions.
Both Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 maintenance involve replacing engine oil and the oil filter at the required 3,500 and 7,500 intervals.
Vehicles driven under conditions requiring Schedule 1 maintenance should have the following items inspected at 7,500 miles and every 15,000 miles thereafter.
- Axle and suspension
- Brake pads, rotors, drums, and linings
- Drive shaft boots
- Exhaust system
- Front suspension ball joints
- Propeller shaft (4WD/AWD/RWD)
- Steering gear and linkage
- Steering linkage ball joint
- Tires (rotations made when necessary)
After 15,000 miles, and every subsequent 30,000 miles, Schedule 1 maintenance will include inspecting the items listed above and the items listed below. Starting at 15,000 miles, and every 30,000 miles thereafter, vehicles meeting Schedule 2 requirements will only require inspection of the following items:
- Automatic transmission/CVT fluid
- eCVT fluid (hybrid electric vehicles)
- Brake lines and cables
- Cruise control vacuum hoses
- Differential oil
- Manual transmission oil
- Transfer case oil
When your Nissan Maxima celebrates 30,000 miles, and for every subsequent 30,000 miles, premium maintenance should be performed on vehicles that require either Schedule 1 or 2 maintenance. Premium maintenance requires all locks and hinges to be lubricated, and these items to be replaced: the automatic transmission CVT/eCVT fluids, engine coolant, differential oil, engine drive belts, manual transmission oil, radiator cap, transfer case oil (4WD/AWD), and wiper blades. All interior lights and headlights should be inspected and replaced if necessary.
