2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MX-5 Miata bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MX-5 Miata suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your MX-5 Miata steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
