Q Does your vehicle need repairs?
Be on the alert for changes in perfor-
mance and sounds, and visual tip-offs
that indicate service is needed. Some
important clues are:
OEngine misses (misfire), stumbling or
pinging
O Appreciable loss of power
OStrange engine noises
O A fluid leak under the vehicle (How-
ever, water dripping from the air con-
ditioning system after use is normal.)
O Change in exhaust sound (This may
indicate a dangerous carbon monox-
ide leak. Drive with the windows open
and have the exhaust system checked
immediately.)
OFlat-looking tires, excessive tire
squeal when cornering, uneven tire
wear
O Vehicle pulls to one side when driven
straight on a level road
OStrange noises related to suspension
movement

OLoss of brake effectiveness, spongy
feeling brake pedal, pedal almost

OEngine coolant temperature continu-
ally higher than normal (→P.90, 95)
If you notice any of these clues, take
your vehicle to any authorized Mazda
retailer or Mazda authorized repairer, or
any reliable repairer as soon as possi-
ble. Your vehicle may need adjustment
or repair.

Maintenance schedule
1 Full Health and Safety service: every 30,000 km or 2 years*.
2 Intermediate oil and filter service, with Health and Safety checks: every
15,000 km or 1 year*.
3 In case your driving conditions** are more demanding than normal, your
vehicle might require shorter Health and Safety service intervals or a
more extensive servicing than listed below. Review your specific driving
conditions with your authorised Mazda repairer or independent repairer,
who will then recommend an appropriate service schedule and explain
in it detail.
*: whichever comes first
**: severe conditions such as:
- Extensive idling and/or low speed driving (e.g. taxi, door-to-door delivery,
ambulance, police, driving school, ..).
- Repeated short trips of less than 8 km while outside temperatures remain
below freezing (engine will not reach normal temperature).
- Continuous high speed driving (80% or more of max. vehicle speed) for over 2
hours.
- Heavily loaded vehicle (e.g. trailer towing).
- Frequent driving under harsh road conditions (rough roads, muddy roads,
roads with dust, melted snow, road salt).
