2012 CX-7 Mazda Steering & Suspension Services

2012 Mazda CX-7 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2012 Mazda CX-7 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2012 Mazda CX-7 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Mazda CX-7, 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 CX-7 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Mazda CX-7 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your CX-7 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CX-7 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda CX-7

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Mazda CX-7 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Mazda CX-7 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda CX-7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Mazda CX-7 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 CX-7 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 CX-7? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Mazda CX-7 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your CX-7 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
