Your Guide to 2017 Mazda 6 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda 6 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 6. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 6 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Mazda 6!

Mazda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Mazda 6 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 6 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Mazda 6 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 6. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 6 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mazda 6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Mazda 6 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 6. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2017 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Mazda 6 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Mazda 6's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Mazda 6 services, 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. 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. Is your Mazda 6 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Mazda 6 maintenance.
