All About 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Drivetrain Service

Your MX-5 Miata’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 MX-5 Miata and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata to maintain its performance power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
