When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2016 Nissan Maximas?

Is It Time For 2016 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2016 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 2016 Nissan Maxima, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Maxima

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Nissan Maxima’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Maxima’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Nissan Maxima suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2016 Maxima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Maxima's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Nissan Maxima get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • When should I have my Nissan Maxima power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
