Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mazda MX-5 Miata Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata? 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).

Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to.

Your Mazda MX-5 Miata could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
