2012 Mazda 6 Drivetrain Service

2012 Mazda 6 Drivetrain Service

Your 6’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 the most complex systems in your 6 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Mazda 6 to maintain its performance power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Mazda 6 Drivetrain Repairs

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 2012 Mazda 6 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 6 might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda 6 drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Mazda 6 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
