Important Mazda Service Tasks Huntsville, AL, Drivers Should Never Skip

If you're like many of our Huntsville, AL, customers, you probably fall behind on servicing your Mazda sometimes. Life gets busy. You may even forget. While that's completely understandable, the Hiley Mazda of Huntsville team wants to remind folks just how important routine maintenance is to the performance and condition of their vehicles.

Why Service Matters?

Staying on top of recommended services can keep your car running more smoothly and help it to last more years on the road. What you may not have considered is how crucial vehicle upkeep is to the safety of you, your passengers, and other Madison, AL, motorists.

Here's a list of some of the Mazda service tasks we recommend most.

Oil Change

Oil changes are probably the most frequent and familiar service we offer. Check your user's manual to determine how often your specific model should be serviced, but it's typically around every 5,000 miles. Replacing low levels of dirty oil provides the lubrication and cooling your engine needs to perform its best. Skipping this task can cause engine problems and could even lead to an expensive breakdown.

Tire Pressure and Tread Check

You'll want to keep an eye on the condition of your tires. Checking your pressure regularly ensures your tires connect properly to the road's surface to provide you with control and maneuverability. It can also extend the life of your tires. Adequate tread is crucial when it comes to safety. Balding tires are dangerous, especially on slick or windy Athens, AL, roads.

Light and Signal Inspection

Occasionally, it's important to take a visual tour of your vehicle to ensure all the lights and signals are working properly. You may need to enlist the help of a friend to turn them on and off for you. While it may not seem like the most urgent task, replacing burnt-out bulbs can help you stay safer by increasing visibility.

Wiper Blade Replacement

Another small fix that can have a big impact on your visibility is replacing your wiper blades. Sharp new blades keep smudges and smears away and can deflect water droplets with ease.

Transmission Fluid Change

Changing the fluid in your transmission doesn't need to be taken care of as often as changing your engine's oil, but it is still quite necessary. Refer to your owner's manual for recommended intervals.

Shocks and Struts Inspection

If you're noticing that your ride is a bit bumpier lately, it could be that you need new shocks and struts to absorb impact better. You should schedule an inspection every 50,000 miles or when you suspect problems.

Belts and Hoses Check

The belts and hoses in your engine are made from materials that wear down due to heat and friction exposure. They can crack and stretch, eventually snapping and leaving you stranded. A quick inspection can save you a lot of frustration.

Battery Testing

Another quick, but useful service we provide is battery testing. This test can let you know if it's almost time to replace your battery or whether you can keep driving worry-free.

Coolant Level Check

Winter in Decatur, AL, is the best time to have your coolant or antifreeze levels checked. A proper ratio of coolant to water is required to prevent engines from freezing. Our service team can check and replace fluid if necessary.
