We know there is no feeling like getting into a new car and knowing that it is performing at its best. As a proud owner of a Mazda3, your Mazda dealer near Charleston, SC, wants to keep this reliable sedan in the best shape possible. When you visit us, our well-trained service technicians will perform an inspection on your car, which includes checking the oil.

Oil changes are essential to your engine running smoothly, which is why getting new oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is important for the health of your vehicle. One reason is that your compact car will maintain its great fuel economy. The engine will also receive proper lubrication to keep it cool. If you do not get the oil of your Mazda3 changed on a timely basis, you are putting your vehicle, especially your engine, at risk. Fresh oil provides the proper lubrication as oil breaks down over time. Dirty oil does not offer any protection as the buildup of sludge drastically shortens your engine life and could cause corrosion. That could end up costing you big time.

Do you have a long commute to work that has stop-and-go traffic? You may even need to change your oil more frequently. The best thing to do is speak to a member of our Mazda service team about your driving habits, so we can create a maintenance plan that works for your lifestyle. Since our dealership will do the work for you, all you need to do is bring in your car. If you have any questions about the services we perform, please reach out to Stokes Mazda online and we will get back to you shortly.
