What to Do When Your MAZDA Vehicle Breaks Down

October 11th, 2021 by

There are few things as inconvenient – and oftentimes unnerving – as your car breaking down. Our Mazda service technicians at Medlin Mazda have tips to help ensure you’re prepared if you’re ever faced with a breakdown.

Practice Safety First

If your car breaks down while driving, it’s important to consider your safety first. If you can, get your vehicle to the side of the road. Make sure you turn on your hazard lights. If it’s dark out, make sure to leave your lights on and consider turning on your interior lights to help make your vehicle more noticeable.

Determine the Culprit

If you can, try to determine the cause for your breakdown. Do you have a flat tire? Have you run out of gas? Perhaps it is your battery? If it isn’t a serious issue, you may want to try correcting it yourself, if you can do so safely. Or you can contact roadside assistance, which can deliver fuel, offer a jumpstart, or even replace a flat. Roadside assistance is included with all new Mazda vehicle purchases for the duration of your new vehicle warranty.
