2017 Mazda 3 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mazda 3 due for service yet?

When To Get 2017 Mazda 3 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2017 Mazda 3, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 3 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Mazda 3, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 3 suspension system needs repair, 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 your Mazda 3’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda 3 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Mazda 3 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 3’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda 3 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Mazda 3’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2017 Mazda 3 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda 3? 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 the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda 3 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few 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.
