2016 Mazda CX-5 Suspension Service & Repair

2016 Mazda CX-5 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mazda CX-5 due for service yet?

Does Your 2016 Mazda CX-5 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Mazda CX-5, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CX-5 bounces, sways 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 2016 Mazda CX-5, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CX-5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda CX-5 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Mazda CX-5 suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2016 Mazda CX-5 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda CX-5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Mazda CX-5 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 CX-5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CX-5's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda CX-5? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mazda CX-5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CX-5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
