2012 Mazda 5 Drivetrain Service

2012 Mazda 5 Drivetrain Service

Your 5’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 5’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Mazda 5, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Mazda's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

We can take care of most 2012 Mazda 5 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mazda 5 may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda 5 drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Mazda 5 drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
