When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2017 Mazda 6s?

Is It Time For 2017 Mazda 6 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2017 Mazda 6, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 6 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Mazda 6 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 6 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mazda 6 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda 6 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Mazda 6’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 6’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda 6 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Mazda 6’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2017 Mazda 6 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 6's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
