Find out what to expect from a regular Mazda maintenance schedule at Tulley Mazda your local Mazda service center, with our overview of three popular models.

Normal Driving Conditions vs. Strenuous Driving Conditions

If your vehicle is driven under normal driving conditions, follow the maintenance schedule guides below. If you frequently drive: long distances, on dirty/dusty/rough roads, in extreme temperatures, or use your vehicle in any other strenuous circumstances, you may need to perform certain services more often. Consult your owner’s manual for more details.

  • Every Two Years: inspect fuel lines/hoses, brake lines, hoses, and connections, steering operation, front and rear suspension, driveshaft dust boost, and tighten bolts and nuts and chassis and body
  • Every Three Years: inspect the drive belts
  • Every Four Years: inspect the hoses and tubes for emission and exhaust system and heat shields
