Overview of Essential Mazda MX-5 Miata Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 MX-5 Miata’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 MX-5 Miata battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty MX-5 Miata) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda MX-5 Miata won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 MX-5 Miata, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 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.
