Not sure when or if your Nissan Maxima’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2018 Nissan Maxima Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2018 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 trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Nissan Maxima in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Nissan Maxima suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 2018 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Maxima’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan Maxima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Nissan Maxima’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 Nissan Maxima Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Maxima's steering and 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Maxima’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
