Try...

NGK OEM Plugs...you can do it. "NGK OEM only"
Fuel Filter...you can do it. "Try the 300ZX one"
Coolant Flush...you can do it. "Easy on the water pressure"
Tranny Flush...let them do it. "High miles?100K+...drain & fill only"
Throttle Body Cleaner...you can do it. "Can+Rag+Toothbrush=Smile"
Brake Fluid...you can do it. "Top it off and reset brake booster."
Tires Rotate/Balance..let em do it.

I'm forgetting other stuff...but save$$$ for more mods...

ditto

There isn't much to do with the Maxima. It tunes itself by the ECU and there are no timing belts that need to changed at 60K, rather we have a chain that is said to be good for 90K. Plugs are said to 60K though some people see 80K with no problem. Fuel filter would be good to change as well as the coolant and tranny fluid. Balance and rotation can be very cheap. Firestone Tire Centers have a lifetime wheel balance and rotation for $12.99 (for the life of the tires).
