Questions About 2017 Mazda CX-9’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.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your CX-9’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your CX-9 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my CX-9 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 CX-9’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.
