Car maintenance needed at 50,000 miles
- Service fuel system
There are two main components in the fuel system that should be checked and serviced when your Mazda hits 50,000 miles. You’ll want to have the fuel filter replaced and fuel cell cap inspected. This service is actually extremely important because it keeps your engine running happily, and we all know how expensive and stressful replacing an engine can be.
- Have systems inspected
There are a few key systems you’ll want to focus on during your 50,000-mile inspection. You’re going to want to have your exhaust system and suspension components inspected. Though most modern-day exhaust and suspension systems will maintain functionality until about 100,000 miles, it’s never a bad idea to have the systems looked over.
- Replace tires
The OEM tires that come on your Mazda when you buy it are of the highest quality and are designed to ride as smoothly as possible, but around 50,000 miles, the soft rubber compound the tires are made of begins to wear out. Once you are approaching the 50k mile mark, it’s a good idea to begin looking for a new set of tires, as you’ll want to replace all four.
