Mazda CX-9 Maintenance Schedule
Your Mazda CX-9 carries your family around Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle with style and grace. If you want to continue reaping the benefits of this SUV, routine maintenance is essential. That’s why Faulkner Mazda put together this easy-to-read Mazda CX-9 maintenance schedule. Use it to help you stay on top of things like oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations.
How to Use This Maintenance Schedule
The below intervals are designed for Mazda CX-9 owners and lessees who drive around the area under normal operating conditions. Mazda refers to this as Schedule 1.
If you drive under severe conditions, you’ll want to get these services done more frequently. There may also be some extra services you need to get to ensure optimal performance. These severe conditions include things like:
- Repeated short-distance driving or extended idling
- Driving in dusty, salty, rough, or muddy conditions
- Long periods of driving in extremely hot, cold, or humid climates
If this describes you, consult your owner’s manual or service technician for more information on maintenance requirements for Schedule 2.
Engine Oil Flexible Maintenance
Your SUV is smart. It keeps track of your engine operating conditions and uses this information to calculate how much life is left in your oil.
When it senses your oil has reached the end of its lifespan, a wrench indicator light will appear on your dash. This dashboard light means you should get an oil and filter change within the next two weeks or 600 miles.
Every 12 months/7,500 miles
After your Mazda CX-9 has been on the road for about a year, you should get a tire rotation to help your tires last longer. While you’re at it, get the disc brakes inspected to make sure they don’t need to be replaced. If you have an emergency flat tire repair kit, inspect that, too.
Finally, if you haven’t already replaced the engine oil and filter, now’s the time to do so.
Every 24 months/15,000 miles
Once your SUV has a few more miles under its belt, you’ll want to make sure the nuts and bolts on its chassis and body are still tight. You should also get your cabin air filter replaced. While your service technician is already looking at your vehicle, they should inspect the following:
- Fuel lines and hoses
- Brake lines, hoses, and connections
- Steering operation and linkages
- Front and rear suspension
- Ball joints and wheel bearing axial play
- Driveshaft dust boots
Every 36 months/22,500 miles
This interval calls for a replacement of the engine air filter. You should also start inspecting the drive belts for signs of damage or wear.
Every 48 months/30,000 miles
In addition to the above services, it’s time to inspect your vehicle’s hoses and tubes for emission.
Every 60 months/37,500 miles
As your Mazda CX-9 starts getting older, it’ll require more inspections. At the 5-year or 37,500-mile mark, you should add a check of the exhaust system and heat shields to your inspections.
Higher Mileage Maintenance Requirements
At every 40,000-mile interval, you’ll want to replace the spark plugs in your Mazda CX-9. This will ensure continued engine performance and efficiency.
After 10 years or 120,000 miles, it’s time to replace the engine coolant. Replace it again every 60,000 miles or five years thereafter.
