    I am also ready for my 24k service and I am going to MoT. Out of Oakville, Erin Mills, Westowne and MoT, all were pretty much the same for the 24k "package". However I decided to by my own oil and get an oil change $27, and brake service $167, which works out to be cheaper than the package. Also elsewhere the brake service alone was adding up to $200. So all in all the rough estimate for the 24k service if you provide your own oil is about $197 (taxes in, which includes our 10% discount) oh and that includes the tire rotation since they have to take the tires off for the brake service.

    My brake services are $138.88 plus taxes - and that includes sanding down any corrosion behind the brake shims - which is commonly forgotten.

    it's your call...it doesn't void your warranty NOT to get it done but if you're worried then get it done
    Just to clarify - if your calipers seize (which is really only going to occur due to lack of lubrication - hence annual brake servicing), and you have not performed your annual brake service; either in the package or on it's own, your calipers will not be covered under manufacturer's warranty

    This is how it is for all manufacturer's - with lack of lubrication, it is expected for these things to seize, because they're dry

    Remember, the maintenance package is designed by Mazda Canada for it's Mazda's vehicles.
    On Honda's they are serviced every 16,000 km, on Toyota's they are serviced every 24,000 km as well - and their annual packages are $245.00 plus tax

    Mazda actually beats these other manufacturer as a lower maintenance cost vehicle to own

    that's perfectly valid to only be doing the oil change at 8k. next one you might need to do tire rotation but that's not for a bit!

    My dealer told me to scan a copy of the reciept where you bought your supplies after you have written your milage on the top. The reason you scan a copy, is if you buy your supplies at Canadian Tire and you file your receipt, there is a good chance in two years that it would have completely faded.

    I don't see when you are supposed to change the Transmission Fluid? Any ideas? I called my dealer today asking about the $260 48,000 km service, and they told me that this doesn't include the transmision fluid change and that will cost an extra $190.00.

    Autos change it more frequently than manual. If you search around most do their's around 50-80k. Some sooner than others.

    I just did some quick searching as I don't remember what I paid for my flush at 50K or so but a complete flush goes for around $139.95 at a dealership, on top of your normal 48K service.

    Thanks for your reply, I better get on it...I'm at 53,000km. Good old Calgary Dealerships quote $190.00, at least I don't have to pay PST.

    Question Re: Mazda3 maintenance schedule

    so i just passed 8000 kms and need to take the car in.

    1. am i just looking at an oil change?
    2. what's a reasonable price range?
    3. is there any (dis)advantage to taking it to the same dealer i bought it from?
    4. i (simply tire) already put the snow tires on and i didn't mark which of the all seasons went where - will it matter when we go to putht hem back on in the spring?

    I'll answer the ones that I know off the top of my head as best I can:

    1. You can get the regular maintenance, which includes oil change, lubrication of all hinges, "inspection of brakes etc". When I took mine into MOT to get this service, since I change the tires myself, I told them not to do that, but other than that the 4 months/8000kms service is what I'd do.

    2. As a result of telling them not to change my tires, they knocked off some money because it was one less thing for them to do.

    3. No, there's no difference. I bought my car from a different dealer than I am currently servicing mine at. Went to any dealer for the best price, and am currently going to the closest dealer with the best customer service (Ajax mazda)

    4. You can always mark the tires when you take them off before storing them for the summer

    Sometimes you can get the first service for free, depending on who you ask. I did by doing some survey. See what you can get! Good luck

    Every 48,000 km or 24 months
    Inspect engine coolant level , Inspect function of all lights, Lubricate all locks and hinges, Replace engine oil, Replace oil filter, Replace air cleaner element, Inspect disc brakes (front and rear) and lubricate caliper slide rails/pins, Inspect brake drum system including parkingbrake, Inspect fuel lines and hoses, Inspect exhaust system and heat shields, Inspect driveshaft dust boots, Inspect all suspension components front and rear including ball joints and driveshafts, Drive Belt Tension Inspect every 56,000 kms, Engine Valve Clearance Audible check and adjust if noisy every 120,000 kms, Replace spark plugs at 120,000 kilometres.


    From my call to the dealer this morning I was told that the tire rotation was included in the price of my 48 Mth service.
    I take my 3 in tomorrow morning. The one thing that I am happily surprised with is that in the 48K that I have been driving this car over two years, it has been rattle, knock and squeak free. That could be why I see more of 3's on the road than Civics or Corolla's these days.
