You want your Mazda B3000 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your B3000 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

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.

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Mazda B3000 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 B3000. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Mazda B3000? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your B3000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda B3000 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty B3000) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda B3000 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 2003 Mazda B3000 engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 B3000, check out the information table at the beginning 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 2003 Mazda B3000? We can help with that, too!

Components within your Mazda B3000's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda B3000 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mazda B3000’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
