What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2011 Mazda RX-8

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RX-8's engine to its 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2011 Mazda RX-8 to maintain its performance power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Mazda RX-8 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2011 Mazda RX-8 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mazda RX-8 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda RX-8 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2011 Mazda RX-8 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
