2014 Mazda CX-9 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mazda CX-9 due for service yet?

Does Your 2014 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2014 Mazda CX-9, 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-9 jolts, drifts 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 2014 Mazda CX-9, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2014 Mazda CX-9’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2014 Mazda CX-9’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2014 Mazda CX-9 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
