Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2007 Nissan Altima

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2007 Nissan Altimas?

Does Your 2007 Nissan Altima Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2007 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Altima bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2007 Nissan Altima in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Altima suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Altima steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Altima

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2007 Nissan Altima suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2007 Nissan Altima’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Altima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Nissan Altima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2007 Altima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Altima? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan Altima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Altima’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
