Mazda 2 Gearbox & Transmission Problems

Cruze a good first car?

Answered by CarsGuide 31 Jul 2015

I couldn’t recommend the Cruze; there are too many problems with its auto transmission, as we have reported here at CarsGuide. Look at the Mazda2 or Mazda3, Toyota Yaris or Corolla, which are generally trouble free.

Mazda 2 transmission fluid

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Jan 2012

Carmakers assess local conditions when setting service routines, and Mazda has decided not to recommend an interval for changing the fluid in their cars sold here. Auto transmission specialists generally recommend changing oil every 50,000 km and having a full service done every 100,000 km or so. I would have the fluid changed in your car.
