Why is Your 2011 Tribute’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2011 Mazda Tribute transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 2011 Mazda Tribute’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 Tribute’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
