Your Mazda 5 isn’t just a car. It’s a part of your lifestyle. Keep it running newer, longer and schedule your routine maintenance appointment today.
What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2008 Mazda 5?
You want your Mazda 5 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 5. 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 5 maintenance. Just follow your 2008 Mazda 5 maintenance schedule!
Mazda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 5's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Mazda 5 problems in the future.
Bring your 2008 Mazda 5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2008 Mazda 5 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2008 Mazda 5'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 2008 5. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2008 Mazda 5? We can help with that, too!
Maintaining your Mazda 5 steering and suspension 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.

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 5's steering system with regular maintenance.
