2017 CX-5 Mazda Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2017 Mazda CX-5

When should you have your 2017 Mazda CX-5 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2017 Mazda CX-5 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2017 Mazda CX-5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CX-5 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Mazda CX-5 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mazda CX-5’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 CX-5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Mazda CX-5 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Mazda CX-5’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda CX-5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CX-5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 CX-5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda CX-5 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 CX-5 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 CX-5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
