An alignment involves making adjustments to your Nissan Pathfinder's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Nissan intended. When the system is aligned to Nissan specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Nissan. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It’s wise to have your Nissan Pathfinder alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Pathfinder dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
Nissan Pathfinder wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care to get an estimate for 2011 Nissan Pathfinder wheel alignment costs today.
