Your Guide to 2007 Mazda RX-8 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mazda RX-8 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RX-8.

It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2007 Mazda RX-8!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mazda, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RX-8's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2007 Mazda RX-8 problems.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2007 Mazda RX-8 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RX-8's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2007 Mazda RX-8 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. 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 RX-8 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 RX-8) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda RX-8 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2007 Mazda RX-8's engine run smoother. See Mazda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2007 RX-8 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 2007 Mazda RX-8? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mazda RX-8 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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 RX-8 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 RX-8's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mazda RX-8 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mazda RX-8 cooling, heating, and climate control system.
