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

Does Your 2011 Mazda 6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Mazda 6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 6 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Mazda 6 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 6 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 6 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Mazda 6 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. 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, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mazda 6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Mazda 6 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2011 Mazda 6 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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. 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 the tires connect with the road how Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda 6 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 6’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
