Curious what kind of service your new Mazda needs? If you want to keep it driving smoothly around the Plano streets, you need to keep up with basic maintenance schedules. Your owner’s manual will have the specific information you need, but in general make sure to keep up with:

  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Any Repairs and Necessary Services

Basic and Preventative Maintenance

The importance of basic and preventative maintenance on your vehicle cannot be overstated. By keeping up to date with your vehicle’s service schedule, you will save yourself costly repairs and fixes in the future. Help yourself in the long run by remembering to keep track of:

  • Headlights and Taillights
  • Dashboard/Warning Lights
  • Tire Condition and Air Pressure Levels
  • Windshield Fluid
  • Engine Oil, Brake Fluid, and Power Steering Levels
  • Cabin and Engine Air Filters

Obviously, some service needs should be handled by the service professionals at your local service department. Regular maintenance needs that can be found in your specific vehicle’s maintenance schedule, and these tasks include things such as:

  • Replacing Air Filters
  • Oil Changes
  • Tire Rotations
  • Battery Check and Cleaning of the Terminals
  • Windshield Wiper Replacement
  • Vehicle Alignment
  • Tire Tread Checks

The necessity of these services depends on factors such as the age of your vehicle and how often you drive. Make sure to never put enough service you think you need for too long, or risk paying a hefty price in the future.

Basic Care and Repairs Are Important

Dallas drivers should know that taking care of the inside of your car is equally important to vehicle health. Taking care of the upholstery and other interior parts can keep your car from becoming smelly, developing mold or mildew, or even rusting. Again, it may seem easy to leave repairs to the last minute, but this shouldn’t be the case. Make sure to replace or get parts inspected the moment you notice something going wrong, which in turn will prevent costly repairs in the future.
