2009 Mazda CX-9 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Mazda CX-9’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2009 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Mazda CX-9, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CX-9 bounces, 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 2009 Mazda CX-9 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda CX-9’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mazda CX-9 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Mazda CX-9’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 CX-9’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Mazda CX-9 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Mazda CX-9 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda CX-9? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • When does Mazda CX-9 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-9 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
