Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2005 Nissan Maxima

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2005 Nissan Maximas?

Does Your 2005 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2005 Nissan Maxima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Maxima bounces, sways 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 2005 Nissan Maxima in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Maxima 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 Nissan Maxima’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Maxima Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2005 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Maxima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Maxima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for 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 Maxima? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
