Here’s Why 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mazda MX-5 Miata to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your MX-5 Miata has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MX-5 Miata maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata maintenance schedule!

Mazda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MX-5 Miata perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata problems.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 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. 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 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. 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! 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata's engine run smoother. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 MX-5 Miata in the chart at the top 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata? We can help with that, too!
