What to Know About 1989 Mazda MX-6 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mazda MX-6, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MX-6 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MX-6, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Mazda MX-6!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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-6 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Mazda MX-6 problems in the future.

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Mazda MX-6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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-6’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Mazda MX-6? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mazda MX-6 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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-6) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda MX-6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Mazda MX-6 engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 MX-6, 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Mazda MX-6.

That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mazda MX-6 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.
