Rotate Tires

12 Months or 7,500 Miles

Once you’ve driven your Mazda CX-5 for either 12 months or 7,500 miles, your SUV’s air filter needs to be cleaned. At this inspection and every 7,500 miles after, rotate your SUV’s tires and inspect your SUV’s disk brakes.

Engine oil will also need to be replaced either yearly or whenever the indicator light is activated, whichever comes first.

24 Months or 15,000 Miles

Brake RepairAt this appointment for the scheduled maintenance of your Mazda CX-5, there are plenty of elements that need to be inspected, including:

  • Fuel lines and hoses
  • Brake lines and hoses
  • Front and rear suspension
  • Steering operation

Keeping an eye on these potential problem areas helps to get needed repairs completed in a timely manner and before they become serious problems, like malfunctioning on the road.

For example, during previous appointments, your cabin air filter was inspected and cleaned. At this point, the filter will be fully replaced, so that an old air filter doesn’t clog up and prevent clean air from flowing through.

36 Months or 22,500 Miles

At this point, your mechanic will need to inspect your drive belts and replace the air filter once again as well as the fuel filter. Regardless of what engine you use, it’s important to change these filters. The fuel filter will help keep your fuel free from outside pollutants and particles and run smoothly through your engine.

Likewise, inspecting the drive belts and disc brakes means you can keep an eye out for wear and tear.

Engine Coolant Replacing Engine Coolant

Once you reach 120 months or 120,000 miles, your SUV’s engine coolant needs to be flushed out and replaced. Making sure this stays fresh will help prevent overheating of your engine.

After this change, make sure to continue to replace it every 60 months or 60,000 miles.

Changing Spark Plugs

Regardless of the timespan, you need to replace the spark plugs on the Skyactiv®-G 2.5 Turbo engine at 40,000 miles to avoid potential engine failure.

If your vehicle runs on any other engine, the spark plugs will first need to be replaced at 75,000 miles.
