2014 Mazda 5 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2014 Mazda 5 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2014 Mazda 5 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 Mazda 5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 5 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 Mazda 5, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 5 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda 5’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 5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Mazda 5’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2014 Mazda 5 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 5's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda 5? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
