How often should I service my 2007 Mazda 5?
You want your Mazda 5 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 5 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 5, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2007 Mazda 5 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 5's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2007 Mazda 5 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2007 Mazda 5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 5. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2007 Mazda 5. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda 5 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mazda 5 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2007 Mazda 5 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2007 5. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2007 Mazda 5? We can help with that, too!
Routine upkeep for your Mazda 5 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda 5 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 5's steering system with 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mazda 5’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda 5? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.
