2017 Mazda 3 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 Mazda 3

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 your 3’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 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.

Mazda 3 Drivetrain Repairs

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2017 Mazda 3 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mazda could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 2017 Mazda 3? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
