The best way to care for your new Mazda vehicle, ensuring its long life on Kings Mountain roads, is to keep up with the regular Mazda maintenance schedule. This schedule varies among models so it’s best to check with your owner’s manual for the exact mileage markers, however, there are some similarities between schedules. Learn more about your Mazda maintenance schedule with us at Mazda of Gastonia and schedule a service appointment with our Mazda of Gastonia service center today!

 

Mazda Maintenance Schedules

Depending on whether your Mazda model’s “Oil Change” maintenance monitor is set to “Flexible” or “Fixed”, the maintenance schedule may differ from other models. The following are based on the status of the maintenance monitor as well as those with normal driving habits. Check out the schedules for the new Mazda3, Mazda6, and Mazda CX-5 with us today.

Mazda3 Maintenance Schedule

  • On a “Flexible” oil change monitor setting: replace the oil when the wrench indicator is ON. While having the oil replaced, also have the air filter and cabin air filter replaced.
  • On a “Fixed” oil change monitor setting: replace the oil every 6 months, the air filter every 30 months, and the cabin air filter every two years.
  • Replace engine coolant at 120,000 miles / 10 years or at 60,000 miles / 4 years depending on the coolant type used.
  • Replace spark plugs at 75,000 miles and have the tires rotated at 5,000 miles.
  • Every year have the disc brakes inspected.
  • Every two years inspect the fuel lines/hoses, brake lines, steering operation, front and rear suspension, driveshaft dust boot, and have the bolts and nuts tightened.
  • Every three years inspect the drive belts.
  • Every four years inspect the hoses and tubes for emission, exhaust system, and heat shields.

Mazda6 Maintenance Schedule
