What to Know About 2013 Mazda 3 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda 3 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 3. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 3, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2013 Mazda 3 maintenance schedule!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 3 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Mazda 3 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 3 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2013 Mazda 3 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 3's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 Mazda 3 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 3 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 3 stranded. Your Mazda 3 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 Mazda 3's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 3. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Mazda 3.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda 3 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Mazda 3 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 3's steering system with 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda 3 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda 3? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2013 Mazda 3 maintenance and repairs.
