Not sure when or if your Mazda MX-5 Miata’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MX-5 Miata bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MX-5 Miata’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mazda MX-5 Miata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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.

2016 MX-5 Miata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Mazda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Mazda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
