Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1997 Nissan Maxima

Why Is Nissan Maxima Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Nissan Maxima’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Nissan intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Nissan specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1997 Nissan Maxima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Nissan’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Nissan Maxima Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Nissan Maxima alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1997 Nissan Maxima: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Maxima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
