Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2013 Mazda 5

When should you have your 2013 Mazda 5 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2013 Mazda 5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2013 Mazda 5, 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 5 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Mazda 5 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 5 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 5 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 5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2013 Mazda 5’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Mazda 5’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mazda 5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why should my Mazda 5 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.
  • When should I have my Mazda 5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
