Mazda Parts & Accessories Frequently Asked Questions


What are genuine Mazda parts?

Genuine Mazda parts - such as those used in the work by Hodgson Mazda - are those that have been specifically designed for use in Mazda vehicles. These parts have been developed and approved by the manufacturer itself and thereby can be relied upon to offer complete compatibility, long-lasting performance, and exceptional value for money. At our state of the art workshop, we only ever use the best quality components in our work, thereby helping you enjoy the highest standards of motoring for longer.


Are Mazda parts expensive?

The cost of Mazda parts is very much dependent on the particular component required, as well as the popularity of the vehicle. For example, if your Mazda vehicle is a limited edition or a vehicle that has not been in production for many years, you could well find yourself investing at a higher cost. For more recent models, however, you are able to benefit from an increased quantity of models, meaning that there’s the opportunity to secure a better price.

Do you deliver Mazda parts?

We already have a large stock of parts and accessories available, but will be happy to source those you require should we be out of stock.


How long does a car engine last?

This is a very good question yet there is no simple answer. You may have heard that ten years is the anticipated longevity of a vehicle; in reality, the endurance of an individual engine is affected by a number of factors. For example, your driving style will very much dictate how much wear and tear a given engine is subject to, as too does the driving environment and conditions to which it is subjected. One of the best ways to ensure that your engine lasts as long as possible is to invest in regular vehicle servicing. A team of trained technicians will be able to inspect the condition at regular intervals and conduct the necessary work to keep it operating effectively.


What are the best Mazda accessories?

Determining which of the Mazda accessories is the best is a very subjective task, as they are dependent on your own particular requirements. Those seeking upgrades on mechanical components will have a different outlook than those wanting to purchase the best entertainment systems. As such, we can only really say that those that are the best quality are components developed by Mazda - or specifically for Mazda cars - itself.

How long do Mazda brake pads last?

The performance of your brake pads should last anywhere up to 70,000 miles; however, the duration of performance will very much depend on your driving style. For example, if you regularly drive at a fast speed, your brakes will work harder when it comes to slowing, thereby adding to the wear and tear experienced.


How often should I change the oil in my Mazda?

Having the right oil in your Mazda is crucial to its ongoing performance and wellbeing, playing an integral role in lubricating the various components throughout the engine. As such, you should be prepared to invest in an oil change every six months or 7,500 miles, whichever comes sooner.
