What’s the Importance of Your 2017 3’s Transmission?

Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Mazda 3 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Mazda 3 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your 3’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2017 Mazda 3’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda 3? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 3’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 3's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 3’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mazda. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
