2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata, 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 MX-5 Miata bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 MX-5 Miata’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 MX-5 Miata Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mazda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata’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.

2011 MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MX-5 Miata's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda MX-5 Miata? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When should I have my Mazda MX-5 Miata power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MX-5 Miata is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
