Factory Scheduled Maintenance


Here is the factory scheduled maintenance list, the list from Mazda. This is provided for convinence, however most experts in the community will object to anyone following this schedule, since it misses many critical components and has too long of an interval on most of the rest. Please see the Critical Scheduled Maintenance article for further information about what is really recommended. The official PDFs are available for each model year in the Manuals section.

If no schedule is noted, then the interval is the same for both schedules. Schedule1 is the normal, schedule2 is what is more commonly referred to as the 'severe' schedule.
