What to Know About 2017 Mazda CX-3 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mazda CX-3 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your CX-3. 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 CX-3 maintenance. Just follow your 2017 Mazda CX-3 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 CX-3 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 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 2017 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your CX-3’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Mazda CX-3. 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 CX-3 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your CX-3 stranded. Your Mazda CX-3 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2017 Mazda CX-3's engine run smoother. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 CX-3, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2017 Mazda CX-3?
