Overview of Essential Mazda MX-5 Miata Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your MX-5 Miata 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 MX-5 Miata 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata's engine run smoother. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 MX-5 Miata in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata? We can help with that, too!

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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Mazda MX-5 Miata 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. Components within your Mazda MX-5 Miata's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 MX-5 Miata cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata maintenance.
