What’s the difference between Mazda repair and routine service? Service involves regular visits to check different aspects of your car, while repairs are required to fix specific problems with your Mazda car. Although both are necessary to maintain the health of your vehicle, regular service can prevent repairs that could create safety hazards on the road.

At Auto Express Mazda, we’re pleased to provide exceptional care on behalf of the technicians at our service center. Let’s look at five ways you can help prevent unexpected (and pricey) Mazda repairs.

Check Your Fluids

You should consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions, but checking the coolant, brake fluid, and oil will make sure your engine and other controls in your Mazda car are running smoothly.

Invest in Genuine MAZDA Parts

To keep your vehicle in prime condition, we recommend only using genuine parts for any repairs or service, which is the only type we use at our service center.

Inspect Your Brake System

If you hear squeaking or grinding noises while driving, your brakes may not work correctly. To help you identify the problem before it’s too late, we recommend visiting our service center to have them checked at regular intervals. Our technicians are trained to inspect all aspects of your brake system, and they’ll be able to recognize potential problems, thereby saving you both time and money.

Check Your Tires

You may need to replace your tires if you notice severe tread wear or have difficulty driving in a straight line. Scheduling a regular inspection will help us determine what the tires on your Mazda need, such as rotation or replacement. Additionally, remember to check your tread depth and inflation at home to identify any red flags early.
