2013 Maxima Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2013 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Nissan Maxima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Maxima jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Nissan Maxima in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Maxima

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Nissan Maxima suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2013 Nissan Maxima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Maxima’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 Maxima Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Maxima? 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 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 Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
