What to Know About 2018 Mazda 6 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda 6 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 6 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 6 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Mazda 6!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 6 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 Mazda 6 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda 6 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2018 Mazda 6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. 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.

Could your 2018 Mazda 6 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 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 2018 6. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Mazda 6.

Maintaining your Mazda 6 steering and suspension 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. 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 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 got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Mazda 6 maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
