The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 5's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 5 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2010 Mazda 5, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mazda's recommendations.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2010 Mazda 5 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 5.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2010 Mazda 5? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
