What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your MX-5 Miata's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission.

When you tune into you 2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
