What to Know About 2010 Mazda 3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda 3 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 3. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 3, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2010 Mazda 3!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 3 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2010 Mazda 3 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda 3

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Mazda 3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 3. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Mazda 3. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda 3 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mazda 3 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2010 Mazda 3 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2010 3. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Mazda 3.

Maintaining your Mazda 3 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda 3 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Mazda 3's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda 3 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mazda 3’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Mazda 3 radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Mazda 3 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Mazda 3. Get answers to common Mazda 3 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda 3? You know your Mazda 3 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Mazda 3? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mazda 3 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mazda? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mazda 3, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
