My 22 year-old daughter bought a new Mazda a couple weeks ago and headed to her next 4 years of college. She’s always working and studying with little spare time. Good kid!
Dad is here to help
I thought I’d investigate maintenance items for her since she asked me some questions about it. I’m trying to figure out oil changes and tire rotations, for starters. She will no doubt be using the dealer for this, at least as long as the warranty and the schedule is in her Manual (I was able to download it on my PC, too).
The embarrassing bit
Hey guys, I managed a Mazda dealer parts department, back in the day, for 2 years. Just for the heck of it I went online to see what OEM oil filters go on it and I couldn’t! I feel like I’m losing it. The sites that claim to sell parts either don’t show a 2017 or don’t show her model, etcetera.
Zoom, Zoom Vehicle introduction
The vehicle is a 2017 Mazda CX-5 AWD 2.5L SkyActiv and I believe (guessing) it’s the Touring model version.
Help me, please
If somebody can steer me to a place that I can search and find OEM Mazda parts for this particular vehicle, I’d really appreciate it. A DIY look-up would be great.
Keep in mind
I have a crappy PC connection (landline). I can’t do awesome things with it, but after many, many minutes I could download an entire Mazda Owner’s Manual. That’s really stretching it!
