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).
