Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Mazda 6

2016 Mazda 6 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2016 Mazda 6s?

Does Your 2016 Mazda 6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 Mazda 6, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. 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 2016 Mazda 6 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda 6 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Mazda 6’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mazda 6 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Mazda 6 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda 6? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Mazda 6 power steering fluid need to be 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’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
