2016 Mazda CX-3 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my CX-3's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mazda CX-3 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mazda, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Mazda CX-3 leak transmission fluid? Yes. Mazda CX-3 transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

You might even experience transmission failure.
