Questions About 2011 Mazda 6’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda 6? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 6’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 6 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 6’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
