Your Guide to 2010 Mazda 5 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda 5 and it'll take care of you. With proactive 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 5 maintenance. Just follow your 2010 Mazda 5 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 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 5 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2010 Mazda 5 problems.

Overview of Essential Mazda 5 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Mazda 5 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 5's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Mazda 5? 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). 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 5) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda 5 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Mazda 5 engine. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 5 in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Mazda 5.
