2005 Mazda Tribute Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mazda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mazda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Tribute’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Tribute's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mazda Tribute transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mazda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
