Suspension Service & Repair for 2010 Mazda 6

2010 Mazda 6 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Mazda 6’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2010 Mazda 6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2010 Mazda 6, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 6 jolts, drifts 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 2010 Mazda 6, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda 6’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda 6

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Mazda 6’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2010 Mazda 6’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda 6 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Mazda 6’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2010 Mazda 6 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda 6 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda 6 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 6’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
