Default Advice When Reaching 50k Miles

i've read a lot of postings here over the past 6 months and have found most of the answers to my questions, in addition to several guys being really helpful with information. but now i would like to ask some advice from everyone to see if you have any suggestions that go beyond what is written. my 07 SE is about to hit 50k miles. i've read that is a good time to change the CVT fluid. i have replaced the rotors (ATL drilled/slotted) and the brake pads (EBC), and the tires (Conti extremecontact dws) and the belts. i've kept up on waxing, stone chips, and other daily/monthly stuff. i wonder about sunroof alignment. filters. muffler (i really want some magnaflows).

what suggestions do you guys have from a real life experience/knowledge standpoint for a car about to hit 50k mileage? thanks in advance.

Here’s my checklist
· Drain/refill on the CVT
· Change the inside cabin filter
· Check for any worn motor belts (depend on your driving)
· Inspect your motor mounts for any cracking
· Inspect your A/C to see if it needs a recharge
· Sunroof should be ok.
· And yes go with the MAGNAFLOWS!!!!

thanks eddy, ive read a lot of your posts, i think there is a sticky you wrote (?) about monthly maintenance which i found helpful too. the motor mounts and a/c i hadnt thought about though, so those are good points. re: magnaflows, i havent decided which ones yet, seems they offer different lengths in the tips. and i think i want a short air intake (toledo is wet, and i dont trust myself with longer) and have been looking at the takeda.

Yeah it all depends on how you drive. I would definetly go with the Takeda. The bracket won't break like the injen and fujita. Plus you can convert it to both short/cold air. It comes with two filters.

Here's the best looking Magnaflows for our cars:

Product Description:
Inlet/Outlet Size: 2.25in./3.5in.
Body Shape: 5in.x8in. Oval
Core Size: Dual 2in.
Body Length: 14in.

MagnaFlow Mufflers 14816

funny you highlight the 816, that was the one i've been watching on ebay, can get two of them for about 300 free shipping. seems competitively priced. the takeda is a different story...pricey but im thinking worth it now that you mention the bracket.

I've had my Takeda since 2009 and never had issues. I was actually the very very first one with the intake so I was like a test dummy. lol

A bit expensive but all members who have it... are happy.

There's also the Nismo as well. But for the sound, I love the Takeda. It sure does RoARRRRR!

Replace your belts, most important on that list. I know they seem minor but they aren't. Don't go by looks or driving habits, just replace them. Piece of mind goes a long way, because if the belt snaps, you're looking at thousands of dollars in repairs versus 170 if the dealer replace it now.

yeah belts are overlooked a lot raz. i did those at 42k in the middle of the winter, i couldnt see myself being stuck in the ohio blizzards we had this year over a couple hundred buck item. is there anything else that sticks out in your mind that is important and not necessarily something mentioned in the manual? practical stuff you've experienced?

Struts if factory, check ball joints, boots on the axles, Tie rod ends, rotate tires, Sway bar links, alignment. That's all I can think of, everything else has been mentioned.

Its usually recommended to change your CVT fluid every 30k miles so you dont necessarily have to change it @ 50k... the best are very important. Glad you brought it up as my 08 is @ 45k miles. I never checked the belt but will check for any cracks or anything and have it changed. Your sunroof should be fine. And go with the mufflers! I got em and love them.

ok gentlemen, so here is the list so far:

Things to do to your Max at 50,000 miles

Drain/refill on the CVT (should be done every 30k)
Change the inside cabin filter
Check for any worn motor belts (depend on your driving)
Inspect your motor mounts for any cracking
Inspect your A/C to see if it needs a recharge
Check struts if factory
Check ball joints
Check boots on the axles
Check tie rod ends
Rotate tires
Check sway bar links
Check alignment
Flush radiator

This is a pretty forward thinking list. Thanks for helping me with this, I appreciate it.

I called my dealer (around 45k) on the CVT fluid and they said don't worry about changing it till 60k or something. I am at 54k now.

I did changed belts, rotors and pads recently.

Dealers always wait longer. I generally do no follow their methods because I know much I drive my car than they do.

True...

Doesn't it say 60K for CVT in the manual as well? I thought it was 30k for the "Premium maintenance" and 60k for normal.

We here on the site recommend a drain/fill at 30K, and a full flush/fill at 60K...

Eddy can correct me if I'm wrong...

We here on the site recommend a drain/fill at 30K, and a full flush/fill at 60K...

Eddy can correct me if I'm wrong...
hey don, i dont mean to answer for eddy but i've read and re-read the site about this and yes you are correct. i've also learned that nissan had some trouble with the first CVT transmissions and after making some changes they extended the warranty to either 110 or 120k, i forget now which, and the guys on here have all said to do the drain and fill at 30 and the big flush at 60. since i bought my max with 42k on it, i am going to assume nothing has been done and will be flushing with the dealer soon. everyone here seems to take the better safe than sorry position.

plus...raz said i should replace the struts and i've been wanting to do that but felt guilty about spending the money so his validation is worth a lot to me right now, i'm ordering KYB's tomorrow LOL thanks raz

Preventive maintenance is the only way to fly.

No one has mentioned replacing hoses. Should hoses be replaced on a schedule or as needed by visual inspection?

Tom,

Shocks/struts are typically rated for 50K miles, so your are right there...
As far as the flush goes...there's a sticky here on how to do it yourself...you'll save a LOT of money. You can hit up Raul (MrDolla) for the fluid and get it for almost half price. I'll find the link for you later tonight...I have to leave for work!

Michael,

I've never preventively replaced hoses...not a bad idea though.
