What to Know About 2017 Mazda 3 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mazda 3, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 3 maintenance. Just follow your 2017 Mazda 3 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 3 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2017 Mazda 3 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda 3

Bring your 2017 Mazda 3 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda 3 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2017 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 2017 3. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Mazda 3.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 3 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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. Components within your Mazda 3's steering system require regular maintenance.

2017 Mazda 3 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 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 does my Mazda 3 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Mazda 3? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mazda? 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.
