2018 Nissan Kicks Suspension Service & Repair

2018 Nissan Kicks Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Nissan Kicks’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2018 Nissan Kicks Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Nissan Kicks, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Kicks feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Nissan Kicks 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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Kicks 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 Kicks steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan Kicks Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Nissan Kicks’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Nissan Kicks’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Nissan Kicks shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Nissan Kicks suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2018 Kicks Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Kicks's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Kicks? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When does Nissan Kicks power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
