Here’s Why 2011 Mazda 6 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mazda 6 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 6 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 6 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2011 Mazda 6 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 6 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Mazda 6 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Mazda 6 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Mazda 6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 6's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Mazda 6. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mazda 6 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 6) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda 6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2011 Mazda 6 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 6. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2011 Mazda 6.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda 6 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda 6 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mazda 6's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Mazda 6 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mazda 6 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Mazda 6 radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2011 Mazda 6 maintenance and repairs.

2011 Mazda 6 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2011 Mazda 6. Get answers to common Mazda 6 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mazda 6? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Mazda 6? If your Mazda 6 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Mazda dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mazda 6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
