Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 Nissan Pathfinder

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Nissan recommend steering and suspension service for 2020 Nissan Pathfinders?

Does Your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Pathfinder jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder in for suspension and steering service. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Pathfinder suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pathfinder’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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 regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 can fill it per Nissan's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
