2012 Mazda 3 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 3's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 3’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Mazda 3 to maintain its performance 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

Your Mazda 3 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Mazda 3? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
