2010 Mazda 3 oil change interval?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

2010 Mazda 3 oil change interval?

Postby Tyler » Thu Nov 18, 2010 2:09 am

Not sure if there is anyone out there who has Mazda 3, model GX, year 2010 model, because I know in manual it says that oil should be changed every 5000 miles, but I see lots of people do it every 7500 miles on Mazda 3's. Is that acceptable or does 5000 sound more reasonable? Also, I know lots of people say that putting synthetic oil can let you drive the car longer without changing the oil, but is it worth it with just 15000 miles on my car currently?

Well to answer your actual question, :wink: The only acceptable time to go up to 7500 miles without an oil change is to use high quality synthetic oil, like royal purple in a newer car. So Yes, with synthetic oil you can go that long between oil changes. Just keep in mind once you switch to a synthetic oil you cant go back and synthetic costs about double the price, so your not really saving anything. I change my own oil in a 2008 Scion TC once every 8,000 miles or so and it costs me $9 a quart (times 5 quarts) plus a filter. So I spend anywhere from $45-60 per oil change and do it less often. It equals 'about' the same price, and I get much better performance out of my car. If you check your owners manual it should say how often to change it, I'm going by what it says for my car here. :)

Suggestion for next time... Go to an auto forum. :lol:
