2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mazda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MX-5 Miata’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my MX-5 Miata's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2020 MX-5 Miata’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.
