Suspension Service at Premier Nissan Group

Your vehicle’s suspension system provides a smooth, comfortable ride for you and your passengers. However, this system does a lot more than just add to your comfort. It improves stability for your steering and provides better handling regardless of the terrain. With all that hard work, sometimes your suspension needs some extra care. Trust Premier Nissan Group for your suspension service.


The Dangers of a Damaged Suspension

If your suspension is damaged or worn, it’s more than just an uncomfortable ride. A bad suspension makes the vehicle harder to control and manage on the highway. It can take longer for you to stop, which can increase your risk for an accident. It can also increase the risk for rollover, especially in models that are already at a higher risk.

When you consider your suspension system, also check other systems which work hand in hand. This includes tires and wheels as well as the steering system. Get your suspension checked and serviced at a place you trust. Stop by a Premier Nissan Group service department in Fremont or San Jose to get your vehicle serviced. Schedule an appointment online or give us a call for all your suspension service needs.

Extra Bouncing

If you notice your car is extra bouncy as you drive, your shocks or struts aren’t doing their job. The vehicle may also sway to the side or move around in other ways that aren’t normal. These are strong indicators that your suspension needs checked.

You’ll also want to pay attention to how your car accelerates and brakes. If the suspension system is in need of repair, the front of the vehicle may dip when braking or the rear drag when accelerating. You may see signs of grease or oil around your shocks or struts, which indicates they are leaking. The tire tread may wear differently with a cupping pattern.

How to Know When Your Vehicle Needs Suspension Service

It’s important to notice when your suspension system needs to be serviced. By taking care of small issues, you can prevent more costly repairs in the future. Our technicians will perform regular service checks on your suspension and let you know if they notice any repairs that need to be made. You should also bring your vehicle in for service and repair if you notice any of the following signs of suspension trouble.

Noises

If you notice your vehicle is making some strange sounds while driving, it could be your suspension. When the system needs repair, it may squeak or make other sounds every time you hit a bump. The suspension system is designed to absorb shocks from the road. When it isn’t doing its job, it will make some strange and unpleasant sounds.

Problems Braking

If you notice that your car takes longer to stop when you apply the brakes, it may be a sign of suspension issues if your brakes are in good shape. Problems with acceleration and braking are indicators of a suspension system that needs repair.
