2004 Mazda Tribute Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mazda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Tribute towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Tribute is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Tribute transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mazda Tribute’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mazda, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
