How often does the 2018 Mazda3 need to have its oil changed?

Mazda recommends changing the oil in the 2018 Mazda3 at a regular interval of 7,500 miles of 12 months, whichever comes first. However, if you are consistently driving in severe conditions, you’ll want to have your oil changed at a regular interval of six months or 5,000 miles. Severe conditions include, but are not limited to, extensive periods of idling, consistent short-distance driving, driving on hilly or mountainous terrains, driving in dusty conditions, driving in extremely hot or cold conditions, and driving on rough or muddy roads.

Why do you need to change your car’s oil?

Oil changes are a major key to keeping your engine running properly. Dirt, dust, sludge, and particles accumulate in the engine components throughout the year, so regular oil changes and filter changes are necessary to keep the engine clean. Oil changes also help keep the engine lubricated, which prevent the moving components from rubbing together and causing friction.

Drivers in need of an oil change are invited to schedule a service appointment at Compass Mazda are invited to do so online or by phone at 833-241-7278. Have additional questions about our service department in Middletown NY? If so, don’t hesitate to contact us today!
