Here’s Why 2012 Mazda 5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 5 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2012 Mazda 5 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 5 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Mazda 5 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda 5

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Mazda 5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Mazda 5? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Mazda 5 engine. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 5 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Mazda 5.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 5 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. Components within your Mazda 5's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Mazda 5 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda 5 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mazda 5? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Mazda 5 maintenance.
