Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Maintenance schedules

To help ensure smooth, safe and economical driving, NISSAN provides two maintenance schedules that may be used, depending upon the conditions in which you usually drive. These schedules contain both distance and time intervals, up to 120,000 miles (192,000 km)/144 months. For most people, the odometer reading will indicate when service is needed. However, if you drive very little, your vehicle should be serviced at the regular time intervals shown in the schedule.

After 120,000 miles (192,000 km)/144 months, continue maintenance at the same mileage/time intervals.

Additional Maintenance Items for severe operating conditions

Additional maintenance items for severe operating conditions should be performed on vehicles that are driven under especially demanding conditions. Additional maintenance items should be performed if you primarily operate your vehicle under the following conditions:

  • Repeated short trips of less than 5 miles (8 km).
  • Repeated short trips of less than 10 miles (16 km) with outside temperatures remaining below freezing.
  • Operating in hot weather in stop-an-go "rush hour" traffic.
  • Extensive idling and/or low speed driving for long distances, such as police, taxi or doorto- door delivery use.
  • Driving in dusty conditions.
  • Driving on rough, muddy or salt spread roads.
  • Using a car-top carrier.

NOTE:

For vehicles operated in Canada, both standard and severe maintenance items should be performed at every interval.
