What are the Mazda Maintenance Schedules?

Mechanic Working on Brakes

Keeping up with your Mazda model’s maintenance schedule is important to keeping it running smoothly for years to come. If you need to learn about the Mazda maintenance schedule for your specific Mazda, you’ll be happy to know that they are similar across the lineup. However, you will want to keep in mind that the maintenance schedule can vary based on whether the Oil Change maintenance monitor was set to “Flexible” or “Fixed.” What does this mean? The frequency of certain oil-related maintenance tasks will vary. For more specific schedules, you can consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual. If you have any questions, or notice it’s about time for a maintenance check, contact the North Penn Mazda service center.
