When to Get a Mazda Oil Change

Some vehicles need the oil changed sooner than the 7,500-10,000 miles recommended. This is usually the case for vehicles that are used more often or are exposed to rougher driving conditions. If you use your model for the following, you may need to bring your vehicle in for a Mazda oil change sooner than stated in your owner’s manual:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Mazda Oil Change Tips

Learning more about oil changes and why they’re needed can help you keep your new Mazda in shape on Rio Rancho and Santa Fe streets longer. When you’re ready to schedule your next service appointment at our service center or simply have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Until then, look over some of these Mazda oil change tips:

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Whenever you get your oil changed, the oil filter should be replaced as well. You can always stop by the parts department at University Mazda for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change at home.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Levels?

In order to keep your Mazda model running right and to catch early signs of damage, it’s best to check the oil levels once a month for any metal particles in the liquid and to check that the color is normal. If you notice your vehicle’s levels are low or there’s another issue with the oil, schedule an appointment with us at University Mazda today.
