Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2006 Nissan Pathfinder

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2006 Nissan Pathfinders?

Does Your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Pathfinder jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pathfinder steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Pathfinder Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Nissan Pathfinder shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Nissan Pathfinder’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.

Questions About 2006 Nissan Pathfinder Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Nissan Pathfinder get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Nissan Pathfinder power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Nissan service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
