2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MX-5 Miata bounces, sways 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 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your MX-5 Miata suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mazda MX-5 Miata

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MX-5 Miata's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mazda MX-5 Miata? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Mazda intended.
  • When does Mazda MX-5 Miata power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MX-5 Miata’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mazda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
