Does Your 2002 Mazda MPV Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2002 Mazda MPV, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your MPV jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Mazda MPV, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your MPV suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mazda MPV’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 MPV Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2002 Mazda MPV’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Mazda MPV’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Mazda MPV shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Mazda MPV suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2002 Mazda MPV 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 help you notice when you need new 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 should my Mazda MPV get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Mazda MPV 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Mazda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
