2015 Mazda 3 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2015 Mazda 3 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2015 Mazda 3 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2015 Mazda 3, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 3 bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2015 Mazda 3 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Mazda 3 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2015 Mazda 3’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 3’s shocks and struts 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 regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2015 3 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When does Mazda 3 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 3’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
