MAZDA3 Maintenance Schedule

Your service schedule will change a bit depending on whether you set your oil change monitor to the standard “Flexible” setting or the “Fixed” setting. This won’t have an impact on performance or safety, it merely changes the frequency at which certain elements of your vehicle should be checked. Let’s take a closer look at the Mazda3 maintenance schedule below:

Normal Driving Conditions

  • Every Year: inspect disc brakes
  • 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 drive belts
  • Every Four Years: inspect hoses and tubes for emission, exhaust system, and heat shields
  • On a “Flexible” oil change monitor setting: replace oil when the indicator is ON. At this point, swap in a fresh air and cabin air filter. The max interval is 12 months / 10,000 miles
  • On a “Fixed” oil change monitor setting: have an oil change every 6 months, replace the air filter at 30 months, and the cabin air filter every two years
  • Replace engine coolant at 120,000 miles / 10 years or 60,000 miles / 4 years depending on coolant type. Once the first replacement has been done, change at 60,000 miles / 5 years and 60,000 miles / 4 years, respectively.
  • Replace spark plugs at 75,000 miles and rotate tires at 5,000 miles
