Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Mazda CX-5!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your CX-5 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Mazda CX-5 problems later.

Overview of Essential Mazda CX-5 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2017 Mazda CX-5 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your CX-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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda CX-5 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2017 Mazda CX-5's engine run smoother. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 CX-5 in the chart at the top 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Mazda CX-5.

  • When should I switch my Mazda CX-5 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Mazda CX-5? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mazda? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mazda CX-5 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
