2003 Mazda 6 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 6’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 6's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Mazda 6’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mazda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
