2016 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2016 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Pathfinder bounces, pulls 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 2016 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Pathfinder suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Nissan Pathfinder Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2016 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pathfinder's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 Pathfinder power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Pathfinder’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
