When it comes to your Mazda MX-5 Miata, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your MX-5 Miata 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’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata!

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata engine. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 MX-5 Miata in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Routine upkeep for your Mazda MX-5 Miata suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).
