Nissan is among the most prevalent car brands in the world, and inarguably, their Sentra model is a best-seller thanks to its affordability and practicality. But reports indicate that there may be some problems with the suspension on the 2017 Nissan Sentra.
Here is what you need to know.
The Suspension Issues
Some 2017 Nissan Sentra drivers have reported hearing loud thumping noises when driving over bumps or potholes – quite disconcerting.
In addition to the thumping noise, some drivers have reported their car bouncing around more than it should- something that can be very dangerous, especially if driving on a busy highway.
There can be a bit of squeaking, a boom, clunking, rattling, or even cracking. This can make it problematic to concentrate on driving.
When there is a loud noise when going over bumps or potholes, it may be because of failed strut assemblies. A failing suspension can often mean the struts are bad.
Struts are a vital car suspension system part, and they play a crucial role in keeping the car stable and ensuring a smooth ride.
Bad car struts can cause all sorts of problems. If your car bounces around more than it should, or if it’s difficult to steer, that’s a sign that the struts may be bad. You may also experience excessive and uneven tire wear, especially front tires. Your struts may need an overhaul when the car pulls to one side while driving – this could signify that the struts need replacement.
Don’t hesitate to bring your limping or leaning-funny vehicle, with rattling and boom sounds, to A1 Performance Auto Repair to have a look and fix. Chances are there may be a problem with the suspension, and it’s best to get it fixed as soon as possible.
