What to Know About 2016 Mazda CX-5 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mazda CX-5, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your CX-5. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get CX-5 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-5!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your CX-5 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Mazda CX-5 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Mazda CX-5 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Mazda CX-5 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with 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-5’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Mazda CX-5? 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda CX-5 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-5 stranded. Your Mazda CX-5 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Mazda CX-5 engine. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 CX-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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Mazda CX-5.

Maintaining your Mazda CX-5 steering and suspension 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 CX-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 CX-5's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda CX-5 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mazda CX-5’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Mazda CX-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.

Questions About 2016 Mazda CX-5 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Mazda CX-5. Get answers to common Mazda CX-5 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Mazda CX-5 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mazda CX-5 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mazda CX-5 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mazda? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mazda CX-5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
