Here’s Why 2013 Mazda 5 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Mazda 5 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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 2013 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; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 5's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Mazda 5 problems later.

Overview of Essential Mazda 5 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Mazda 5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Could your 2013 Mazda 5 be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda 5 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 2013 Mazda 5 engine. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 5 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2013 Mazda 5? We can help with that, too!

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. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 5's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Mazda 5 services, 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 your Mazda 5 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Mazda 5 maintenance.
