2010 Mazda 3 Drivetrain Service

Your 3 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Mazda, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 3 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2010 Mazda 3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mazda's recommendations.

When to Get Mazda 3 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2010 Mazda 3 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mazda could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda 3 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2010 Mazda 3 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
