While sticking to your Mazda maintenance schedule may seem inconvenient at times, performing regular service in South Windsor can actually save you time and money in the long run, preventing costly repairs and extending the life of your vehicle. But you don’t have to be an auto repair expert to stay on top of your car’s needs: the service experts at %%di_time%% have our top 10 maintenance tips for keeping your new Mazda in ultimate condition.

What You Need To Know

Never fall behind on auto service in Bolton again by remembering these quick and easy guidelines.

  1. Know the Manual: Your manual holds all the knowledge needed for longevity, so be sure to read up on key specs and recommendations.
  2. Inspect the Vehicle: Staying aware of your car’s overall condition will make it easier to spot when something’s wrong. Attending to leaks or dying batteries immediately will stop issues before they become big problems.
  3. Check Your Tires: Checking your tire tread depth on a regular basis will alert you to abnormal wear, as well as keeping your tires inflating to their proper pressure.
  4. Check the Engine Oil Level: Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, so performing regular oil changes is vital to automotive health. Be aware of your oil levels and color, looking for changes.
  5. Check the Engine Coolant: Coolant levels are just as important as oil, so be sure to know where your coolant reservoir is located and where your levels are at.
  6. Inspect the Engine Air Filter: Engine air filters need to be replaced on a regular basis to help cut down on debris. If yours is clogged or dirty, it’s time for a new one.
  7. Use the Right Fuel: While it may not seem like a big deal, filling up with the wrong fuel can make a difference on engine performance. Make sure you choose the recommended octane level.
  8. Inspect Light Bulbs: Avoid a ticket and stay safe in East Hartford by always having working headlights and taillights.
  9. Inspect the Windshield Wipers: Maintain clear visibility through even the worst Glastonbury weather by changing your wipers on an annual basis.
  10. Keep Track of Maintenance: Stay up to date on your service appointments by working with a certified maintenance team. Dealerships have advantages over third-party mechanics, and can help remind you when your vehicle is due for service.
