powertrain dies at 59K/6yrs
By aknight on
2006 Mazda MPV LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Auto-transmission broke down at 59K, 6 yrs: back and forth between gear 1 and 2.
Had to get a tow.
Am the first owner.
Was having hard-shift right after the purchase.
Mazda's attitude: hard-shift not reproducible, cannot fix.
Seeing so many other MPV owners' complaints on transmission problems, hard to believe Mazda not facing MPV transmission issue honestly. Transmission breaking down is estimated to cost $4K to fix/replace.
Poor auto-transmission reliability and poor fuel efficiency.
Wife and kid refused to get in my MPV.
They both feel dizzy due to the uncomfortable gear shifting.
Where is NTSB?
Are my tax dollars at work?
Do they want to wait for accidents to happen before they act on MPV auto-transmission issues?
