Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2013 Mazda 3

When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2013 Mazda 3s?

Does Your 2013 Mazda 3 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 Mazda 3, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 3 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Mazda 3 in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 parts of your Mazda 3 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda 3 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Mazda 3 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Mazda 3’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda 3 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 3’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 3 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 3's steering and 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 Mazda 3 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mazda 3 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 3 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
