Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Mazda CX-9

2016 Mazda CX-9 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2016 Mazda CX-9 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2016 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2016 Mazda CX-9, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your CX-9 feels bouncy, leans 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 2016 Mazda CX-9, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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

Your 2016 Mazda CX-9’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. 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 forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2016 Mazda CX-9’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 CX-9 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda CX-9? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When should I have my Mazda CX-9 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CX-9 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
