Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Mazda MPV

2004 Mazda MPV Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Mazda recommend steering and suspension service for 2004 Mazda MPVs?

Is It Time For 2004 Mazda MPV Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2004 Mazda MPV, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MPV bounces, drifts 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 2004 Mazda MPV, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 MPV’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MPV Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Mazda MPV’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 MPV’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mazda MPV shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Mazda MPV suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 MPV Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mazda MPV? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
