Your Guide to 2006 Mazda 5 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda 5 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 5 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 5 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2006 Mazda 5!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 5 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2006 Mazda 5 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda 5

Bring your 2006 Mazda 5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 5’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2006 Mazda 5 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 5 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda 5 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty 5) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda 5 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2006 Mazda 5 running newer, longer. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 5, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2006 Mazda 5.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 5 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Mazda 5 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mazda 5's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda 5 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 5 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

2006 Mazda 5 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Mazda 5. Get answers to common Mazda 5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda 5? 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 5 to high mileage oil? If your Mazda 5 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Mazda dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mazda 5 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.
