Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your 3’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Mazda 3 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Mazda 3 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 3 at all.
According to Mazda, your 3’s transmission should be checked regularly for wear and tear. For example, Mazda recommends exchanging transmission and differential fluids in 2011 Mazda 3s at certain intervals with Mazda-approved transmission fluid. Our expert techs are familiar with 2011 3 services and perform them according to Mazda-recommended specifications.
