2014 Mazda CX-5: 15,000-Mile Service

August 20, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

Our 2014 Mazda CX-5 recently cleared 15,000 miles. As such, it was due for its 15,000-mile service. This essentially entails an oil change and tire rotation. The dealer also took care of a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that was out on the vehicle.

I took our CX-5 to Lithia Mazda of Fresno, CA, which is near where I live. The service advisor was pleasant enough, and during the check-in his computer indicated that there was a TSB posted for the car. The TSB was for an engine software update. Apparently, this is to fix an issue where the check-engine light could come on unnecessarily (we never experienced the problem).

I was there for about an hour and 30 minutes. Total cost was $69.74 for the service (the TSB update was, of course, free).

    The more I read about this vehicle, the more I like it. They got the details right.

    You can always tell which vehicles are your favorites. 15k on the clock six months in? You'll be tickling 30,000 miles at the end of its tour.

    @greenpony: Maybe, maybe not. Summer travel season is over. The next six months is all part of the school year, not to mention shorter days come daylight savings.
