What to Know About 2011 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, your RX-8 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 RX-8, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Mazda RX-8!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mazda themselves. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your RX-8 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Mazda RX-8 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Mazda RX-8 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Mazda RX-8 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Mazda RX-8? 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). 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 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RX-8 stranded. Your Mazda RX-8 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 2011 Mazda RX-8 engine. To learn how often Mazda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 RX-8, check out the information table at the beginning 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Mazda RX-8.

Components within your Mazda RX-8's steering system require regular maintenance.
