Your Guide to 2016 Mazda 6 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mazda 6, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 6. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 6, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Mazda 6!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 6 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Mazda 6 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 6 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2016 Mazda 6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 6’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2016 Mazda 6 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mazda 6 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 6 stranded. Your Mazda 6 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Mazda 6 engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 6, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Mazda 6? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda 6 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Mazda 6 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mazda 6's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda 6 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda 6 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Mazda 6 radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Mazda 6 maintenance and repairs.

  • When should I have Mazda 6 alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2016 6 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Mazda 6 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mazda 6 engines.
  •  Why are my Mazda dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mazda 6, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
