How to Preserve the Life of Your MAZDA CX-5
When you drive a quality vehicle like a Mazda CX-5, you want to enjoy it as long as you can. Our service technicians at Medlin Mazda have a few tips to help you increase your vehicle’s lifespan.
Schedule Routine Maintenance
Routine maintenance is arguably one of the most important ways to care for your vehicle. There are a variety of tasks that your vehicle needs to keep it running smoothly.
- Engine oil change and filter replacement
- Tire inspection and rotation
- Various fluid replenishment (transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, etc.)
Keep it Protected
Keeping your vehicle protected is also crucial in getting the most out of your vehicle. Whenever possible, keep it stored in the garage. Try to avoid being parked for extended hours in the scorching sun or inclement weather.
Wash it Regularly
Cleaning your vehicle is more important than you may think. If you wait too long to clean your vehicle, it can eventually lead to rust or even corrosion. It’s also important to keep your cabin clean to keep your air quality as pure as possible.
Inspect it Regularly
It’s important to keep a close eye on your vehicle. Regularly inspect your tires, checking its tread and watch for unusual wear and tear. You also want to make sure you don’t let the fluids under your hood get too low, which can cause undue wear on your vehicle.
Don’t Ignore Warning Signs
If your vehicle starts performing unusually, make sure your visit our service center for an inspection. While it may just be a minor issue, if left unattended, it could end up causing serious harm to your vehicle. Watch for vibrations, screeching noises, unusual smells, or dashboard warnings.
