Your 3’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2015 Mazda 3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2015 Mazda 3 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 3 might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mazda 3.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2015 Mazda 3? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
