2007 Mazda 6 Suspension Service & Repair

2007 Mazda 6 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2007 Mazda 6 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2007 Mazda 6 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2007 Mazda 6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 6 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2007 Mazda 6 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 6’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 6 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2007 Mazda 6’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 6’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mazda 6 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 6’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2007 6 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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 6? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • Does my Mazda 6 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 6’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
