Is It Time For 2017 Mazda CX-9 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2017 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, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 Mazda CX-9 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your CX-9 suspension system needs repair, 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 CX-9 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda CX-9 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Mazda CX-9 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda CX-9 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CX-9’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mazda CX-9 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mazda CX-9 power steering fluid need to be 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 can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
