Transmission Failure

That's right! Beware of drive train issues. At 18,000 my transmission failed. The dealer couldn't tell what caused the extremely low pressure inthe transmission that lead to it's sudden failure (probably because most Toyota dealers haven't had hands on time with the ia). I haven't seen any issues like this with the IA's Madza cousins. Hopefully this doesn't become a repeat issue.

How did they remedy your issue ? Did they replace it or say they could fix it ?

They ordered a new transmission. Took about 4 days. They had no clue how it happened. What's weird to me, was how suddenly it failed. Ran into the store and when I tried to back out of a space it just started jerking until the engine stalled.

Gosh darn that's really odd. I wish they would have said which components failed and what not instead of just replaced it and said we don't know. They have to know what happened, that's their job lol.

They probably ran to the nearest Mazda dealer to do diagnostic and pick up parts.

I wouldn't be surprised at all. Plus there's a good chance the two dealerships are part of the same dealer network which makes all of that much easier to go about.

Was it auto or stick? My trans is manual and being replaced at 7k, the car still drives fine but makes a lot of noise from the trans. I wouldn't be surprised if my trans died out soon like yours.
