Mazda CX-5 Maintenance Schedule
At the Faulkner Mazda Service Center, our team is committed to helping drivers throughout Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle get the most mileage out of their Mazda CX-5.
The proven best way to accomplish this feat involves keeping up-to-date on the SUV’s maintenance. That’s why we created this helpful Mazda CX-5 Maintenance Schedule, so you can better understand the benefits to regular checkups and when to plan for important service milestones.
Every 5,000 – 7,000 Miles
According to the US Department of Transportation, Americans drive an average of 13,476 miles each year. This means you should plan to schedule a service appointment at least 2–3 times throughout the calendar year.
Not only does this allow our service pros to perform important upkeep but also keep track of any potential repairs your Mazda CX-5 needs down the road. Every 5,000–7,000 miles you’ll want to schedule the following:
- Oil and filter change
- Tire rotation
- Top off all fluids
- Brake, belts, and hoses inspection
Every 15,000 – 30,000 Miles
Once you reach the 15,000-mile mark, you’ll need to return for the same maintenance we mentioned in the previous segment while also having a few other areas inspected like the cabin and engine air filters.
During this time, you’ll also need to have the engine inside your Mazda CX-5 flushed and replaced with fresh coolant.
Every 40,000 – 60,000 Miles
If you’ve kept up with regularly rotating your tires, our technicians should also have a good idea on the condition both your tire treads and brakes. Depending on your driving habits and local road conditions, these components will need to either be partially or fully replaced within the 40–60K mark. Individual components you might need to replace include:
- Brake pads
- Rotors and calipers
- Brake lines and hoses
What’s a Tire Alignment?
A tire or wheel alignment is the adjustment of your vehicle’s suspension system which is in charge of properly holding each of your tires in place. In some instances, your tires will get slightly knocked out of position which makes it harder to steer and brake. This also often causes your tires and brakes to prematurely wear down.
Some common symptoms to look out for include uneven tread wear, pulling to the right or left, and steering wheel vibration. Fortunately, by keeping up to date on your vehicle maintenance, our service pros can often catch this common issue before it has the ability to escalate.
Every 75,000 Miles
Once your Mazda CX-5 hits the 75,000-mile mark, you’ll need to start looking towards having some of its internal parts replaced including the timing belt and the spark plugs. During this time, it’s also wise to run a battery and electrical test.
Your shock absorbers and struts should also be inspected and replaced as necessary to ensure your SUV maintains its smooth ride.
