Here’s Why 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Mazda MX-5 Miata, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MX-5 Miata has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get MX-5 Miata maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MX-5 Miata perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mazda MX-5 Miata

Bring your 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your MX-5 Miata. 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.

Could your 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda MX-5 Miata battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 MX-5 Miata won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 MX-5 Miata, 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Mazda MX-5 Miata steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Mazda MX-5 Miata's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Mazda MX-5 Miata maintenance, 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 MX-5 Miata engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Mazda MX-5 Miata? You know your Mazda MX-5 Miata better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 MX-5 Miata engines.
  • 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 MX-5 Miata to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
