At Paretti Mazda, we’re here to explain how a maintenance schedule works and outline important service mileage intervals for the Mazda MX-5 Miata for drivers in Metairie, Harvey, and New Orleans, LA.


What Is a Maintenance Schedule

What Is a Maintenance Schedule?

A maintenance schedule is a collection of different services—many of which are routine—that will be needed at multiple mileage intervals. In the case of Mazda maintenance schedules, which includes the Mazda MX-5 Miata, maintenance schedules are divided this way. However, there are separate maintenance schedules for drivers who drive under normal conditions and drivers who drive in more severe conditions.

For the purpose of this maintenance schedule overview, we’ll cover what a maintenance schedule under normal conditions would look like.


Important Maintenance Intervals

Important Maintenance Intervals

  • 7,500 miles: Your first service visit will include routine maintenance services like engine oil and engine filter changes and tire rotations. Additionally, your technician will inspect the vehicle’s disc brakes.
  • 15,000 miles: This service visit will include all routine maintenance services included at the 7,500-mile mark. Additionally, your vehicle’s fuel lines and hoses; brake lines, hoses, and connections; steering operation and linkage; and driveshaft dust boots will be inspected. Your vehicle’s bolts and nuts on the chassis and the body will be tightened as well.
  • 45,000 miles: All services listed above will be performed, as well as the air filters replaced for the second time. The drive belts will also be inspected.
  • 75,000 miles: This is an important mileage interval to keep an eye on because, at this point, you’ll most likely need to have the spark plugs replaced. Furthermore, you may need to have manual transmission oil replaced if it wasn’t already done at the 60,000-mile mark.
  • 120,000 miles: Once you hit this mileage interval, in addition to all your routine maintenance services and inspections, you’ll have your vehicle’s engine coolant replaced. After this service visit, you’ll need to have the engine coolant addressed every 60,000 miles. The transmission fluid will have to be replaced at this point as well.
