Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 Nissan Pathfinder

2017 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Pathfinder feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your Nissan Pathfinder’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Nissan Pathfinder

Your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pathfinder’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

2017 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
