The Importance of Maintenance Even When You Drive Less

With video calls, remote learning, working from home, and more, people are driving much less these days. If your driving time has been dramatically decreased, you may wonder just how best to take care of your Mazda. At Cutter Mazda Honolulu, we are glad to help! On this page, you will find information on how to keep your Mazda well maintained, even when you’re not driving it as much. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us; we will be glad to help.

 

Does My Mazda Need Maintenance as Often as Before?

In short: it depends. Take a look at cabin air filter replacement service, for example. At Cutter Mazda Honolulu, we recommend having this service performed every 15,000 miles or once a year. Even if you don’t drive 15,000 miles in a year, you should visit annually to have the cabin air filter changed. Failing to do so may cause your HVAC system not to work as well. But there are other services you may not have to do as often, like brake pad replacement and wheel alignment. When in doubt, check with the experts at Cutter Mazda Honolulu!

What Are Other Ways To Take Care of My Mazda While Driving Less?

    Drive Your Mazda Weekly (At Least)
    Taking your Mazda out for a weekly drive does a lot of good for various systems. It helps keep all the components lubricated and keeps them from drying out, and it also prevents your tires from getting flat spots from where they touch the ground. If you leave your Mazda for too long between trips, rust can form on the brake pads. When you do take your Mazda for a drive, make sure you drive for at least fifteen minutes. As your vehicle sits, the battery slowly drains. Driving for at least fifteen minutes will allow it to recharge.

    Keep the Gas Tank Full
    Did you know that a gas tank with lots of space inside can build condensation? This, in turn, can cause lots of trouble. Because of this, it’s best to make sure your tank is full.

    Check the Tire Pressure
    Tires can lose pressure as time passes, and this can lead to danger when you drive. It’s easy to forget tire pressure when you’re not driving as much, so be sure to check it regularly.

    Consider Using a Car Cover
    If you’re parking outside, a car cover can help keep your Mazda safe from the elements.
