When it comes to your Mazda CX-3, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your CX-3. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get CX-3 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Mazda CX-3!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your CX-3 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Mazda CX-3 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda CX-3

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Mazda CX-3 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your CX-3. 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 2016 Mazda CX-3? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda CX-3 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 CX-3) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda CX-3 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
