2011 Nissan Murano Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2011 Nissan Murano Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Nissan Murano, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Murano bounces, pulls 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 2011 Nissan Murano in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Nissan Murano’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.

Nissan Murano Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Nissan Murano’s suspension. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Nissan Murano’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan Murano shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Murano’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Murano Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Murano's steering and 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Murano? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Murano power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Murano’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
