2018 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Nissan Pathfinder due for service yet?

Does Your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Pathfinder feels bouncy, leans 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 2018 Nissan Pathfinder in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Nissan Pathfinder Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2018 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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Nissan up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Nissan Pathfinder shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Nissan intended.
  • Does my Nissan Pathfinder power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Pathfinder is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Nissan's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
