Don’t let drivetrain problems drive you crazy. Drive to Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2006 Mazda RX-8 drivetrain service and repair. Schedule an appointment today.
Your RX-8’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your RX-8 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 Mazda RX-8, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2006 Mazda RX-8 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Mazda RX-8 may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Mazda RX-8 doesn’t drive like it used to.
How much does it cost to fix your 2006 Mazda RX-8 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
