Suspension Service & Repair for 2014 Mazda 3

2014 Mazda 3 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2014 Mazda 3 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2014 Mazda 3 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 Mazda 3, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 3 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 Mazda 3, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 3 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda 3 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2014 Mazda 3’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. 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 2014 Mazda 3 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators 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.

2014 3 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda 3? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 Mazda 3 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 3 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
