2018 Mazda CX-3 Maintenance Schedule
Your 2018 Mazda CX-3 is a reliable vehicle, but the best way to keep it running at its optimum is with routine service and maintenance. Small services like oil changes and tire rotations are quick and convenient, but add years to the life of your vehicle and help you avoid a breakdown or major repair.
For drivers in Doral, Miami, Hialeah, and Kendall, the team at Ocean Mazda compiled this 2018 Mazda CX-3 maintenance schedule, so you can keep up with your vehicle’s service intervals.
The 7,500-mile service is the first of your service intervals and includes the basic tasks that will be repeated throughout the life of your vehicle. At this time, your Mazda CX-3 will need an oil and filter change, an inspection, and a tire rotation. Your technician will also check the braking system, belts and hoses, and check for low or leaking fluids.
Building on the services from the previous interval, your Mazda CX-3 may need the engine air filter and cabin air filter replaced, and possibly brake pad replacement. Your technician
should also check your vehicle and look for any signs of wear that could be addressed early.
This service interval includes the maintenance items from the previous intervals. At this time, you may also need your tires replaced, your brake pads replaced, your brake rotors changed, and your cabin filter replaced.
In addition to all the previous services, this interval is when you may need fluids replaced, such as the engine coolant, transmission fluid, or brake fluid. You may also need your air filter, fuel filter, or spark plugs replaced, and your technician will likely perform a more thorough inspection of all your vehicle’s vital components.
This interval is a minor service that combines the services from the previous intervals. Depending on your driving conditions, you may also need your brake pads, coolant, drive belt, or cabin filter replaced, and you may need transmission service.
This interval includes the standard services, like an oil change and tire rotation, as well as a comprehensive inspection of all your vehicle’s systems and components. Your brake pads and tires may need to be replaced as well.
This interval includes previous services, but it’s important to note that your vehicle is likely out of warranty by this point. An extended warranty may still apply, but may not include drivetrain and emissions warranties.
You may also see some wear and tear on certain components, such as the belts and hoses, suspension bushings, or motor mounts, as well as oil leaks. Fortunately, routine maintenance allows you to care for these issues before they become a problem.
