Suspension Service & Repair for 2000 Nissan Altra EV

Is It Time For 2000 Nissan Altra EV Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2000 Nissan Altra EV, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Altra EV bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2000 Nissan Altra EV in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Altra EV suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Nissan Altra EV’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan Altra EV Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2000 Nissan Altra EV 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 2000 Nissan Altra EV’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Altra EV shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2000 Nissan Altra EV suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2000 Nissan Altra EV Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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 Altra EV? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Nissan Altra EV power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Altra EV is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
