Not sure when or if your Mazda MPV’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2006 Mazda MPV Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Mazda MPV, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MPV jolts, pulls 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 2006 Mazda MPV, 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, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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 2006 Mazda MPV’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Mazda MPV shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mazda MPV shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Mazda MPV’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 MPV Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your MPV’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
