2013 Leaf Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2013 Nissan Leaf Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Nissan Leaf, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Leaf bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Nissan Leaf, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Leaf 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 Leaf Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Nissan Leaf’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2013 Nissan Leaf shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Leaf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Nissan Leaf suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2013 Nissan Leaf Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Leaf's steering and 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Leaf? 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.
  • Does my Nissan Leaf power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Leaf is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
