2012 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2012 Nissan Maxima Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Nissan Maxima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Maxima feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Nissan Maxima, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Nissan Maxima Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Nissan Maxima’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2012 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Nissan Maxima suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2012 Nissan Maxima Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Maxima? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Nissan intended.
  • 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
