It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mazda RX-8 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Mazda RX-8 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your RX-8’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2010 Mazda RX-8’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mazda? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my RX-8's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mazda RX-8 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
