Your Guide to 2016 Mazda 3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda 3 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your 3 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Mazda 3!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 2016 Mazda 3 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 3 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Mazda 3 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Mazda 3? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. 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 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 2016 Mazda 3 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 3. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Mazda 3? We can help with that, too!

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda 3? 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 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.
  •  Why are my Mazda dashboard lights on? 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
