When To Get 2013 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2013 Mazda CX-9, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your CX-9 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Mazda CX-9 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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your Mazda CX-9 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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-9

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Mazda CX-9 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 CX-9’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Mazda CX-9’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 CX-9 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 should my Mazda CX-9 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mazda CX-9 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-9 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
