Nissan Maxima 2004 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Maxima 2004 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Premium Unleaded fuel only
The engine is tuned to run at its peak on Premium Unleaded fuel, which has an octane rating of 95. By using that fuel you will get better performance and better fuel economy, most likely better fuel economy than you would when running on the cheaper Regular unleaded. Nissan approve the use of E10 ethanol blend fuel, so that would be the best alternative fuel if you can't afford Premium.Show more
Nissan Maxima door locks
The door locks are a known problem on the Maxima and you might be able to get that fixed free by Nissan if you go to a Nissan dealer. The company has a service alert out on the problem and has been fixing cars free of charge. Otherwise the Maxima is a reliable, sturdy car with no serious mechanical issues.Show more
Oily Nissan Maxima
Nissan specialist Jerry Newman tells us that 20w-50w is regarded as a little heavy for a modern multi-valve engine, and that 10w-40w or 15w-40w is preferable depending on the temperature of the area you live in. Either grade would be suitable for your area, but the 10w-40w would be better if you were driving regularly to the snow where it would be much colder.Show more
It will take a camper
THE Nissan will happily tow your campervan, but you might consider fitting higher-rated rear springs to avoid the rear end bottoming out, and replace the auto transmission oil with a high-quality oil.Show more
