What to Know About 2015 Mazda 3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda 3 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 3 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 3 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2015 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2015 Mazda 3 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda 3

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2015 Mazda 3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 3’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2015 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 3 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda 3 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 3 stranded. Your Mazda 3 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2015 Mazda 3 engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2015 3, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2015 Mazda 3.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 3 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Mazda 3 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 3's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Mazda 3 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mazda 3 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Mazda 3 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2015 Mazda 3 maintenance.

2015 Mazda 3 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2015 Mazda 3. Get answers to common Mazda 3 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Mazda 3 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mazda 3 to high mileage oil? 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 Mazda dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mazda 3 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
