Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2014 Mazda 6

Why Is Mazda 6 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mazda 6's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Mazda intended. When your suspension is aligned to Mazda’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2014 Mazda 6, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Mazda. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mazda 6

It's a good idea to have your Mazda 6 alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2014 Mazda 6: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 6 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
