2016 – MX-5 – General Information

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE

Scheduled Maintenance Table for U.S.A., CANADA and Puerto Rico

  • Follow Schedule 1 if the vehicle is operated mainly where none of the following conditions (severe driving conditions) apply.

    • Repeated short-distance driving

    • Driving in dusty conditions

    • Driving with extended use of brakes

    • Driving in areas where salt or other corrosive materials are used

    • Driving on rough or muddy roads

    • Extended periods of idling or low-speed operation

    • Driving for long periods in cold temperatures or extremely humid climates

    • Driving in extremely hot conditions

    • Driving in mountainous conditions continually

  • If any do apply, follow Schedule 2. (Canada and Puerto Rico residents follow Schedule 2.)

    Vehicles using Engine Oil Flexible Maintenance

  • Engine Oil Flexible Maintenance is available for U.S.A. and Puerto Rico residents whose vehicle is operated mainly where none of the following conditions apply:

    • Extended periods of idling or low-speed operation such as police car, taxi or driving school car

    • Driving in dusty conditions

  • If any do apply, follow Schedule 2 with engine oil fixed maintenance.

  • Once engine oil flexible maintenance is selected, the vehicle calculates the remaining oil life based on engine operating conditions. The vehicle lets you know when an oil change is due by illuminating the wrench mark in the instrument cluster. Change the oil as soon as possible within the next 500 km (300 mile) or 15 days.

  • Mazda Genuine 0W-20 Oil and Castrol 0W-20 Oil are required to achieve optimum performance.

NOTE:

  • Please ensure that the Flexible Oil Maintenance Setting is reset after each Oil and Filter replacement.

  • For maintenance guidelines beyond the miles/months listed, follow the maintenance intervals provided in the Scheduled Maintenance Tables.

Schedule 1: U.S.A. residents – Engine oil flexible maintenance interval
  • Use when the maintenance monitor for “Oil Change” is set to “Flexible”. For details, see maintenance monitor.

    Remarks

  • Refer below for a description of items marked* in the maintenance chart.

    • *1: The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year or within 16,000 km (10,000 miles) since last engine oil and filter change. The system must be reset whenever replacing the engine oil regardless of the message/wrench indicator light display.

    • *2: Use of FL22 is recommended when replacing engine coolant. Using engine coolant other than FL22 may cause serious damage to the engine and cooling system.

    • *3: According to state/provincial and federal regulations, failure to perform maintenance on these items will not void your emissions warranties. However, Mazda recommends that all maintenance services be performed at the recommended time or mileage/kilometer period to ensure long-term reliability.

    • *4: The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) initialization must be performed so that the system operates normally (if equipped).

    • *5: If this component has been submerged in water, the oil should be replaced.

    • *6: Check the tire repair fluid expiration date every year when performing the periodic maintenance. Replace the tire repair fluid bottle with new one before the expiration date.

However, Mazda recommends that all maintenance services be performed at the recommended time or mileage/kilometer period to ensure long-term reliability.

    • *3: To equalize tread wear for maintaining good performance in handling and braking, rotate the tires every 12,000 km (7,500 miles). However Mazda recommends to rotate every 8,000 km (5,000 miles) to help increase tire life and distribute wear more evenly.

    • *4: The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) initialization must be performed so that the system operates normally (if equipped).
