Thanks for sharing your valuable experience. It definitely would help those who want to DIY on ATF drain-and-fill. This’s another confirmation that Mazda under-filled ATF from factory! This should be a legit reason to change the ATF and make the ATF to be at correct level in addition to have fresher fluid.Thanks to this forum, I just completed 2 drain/fill 's on my 16' Mazda 3 (58,000 miles). Observations:
All in all, it was a very worthwhile project. The lifetime claim is laughable, besides the tranny was underfilled from the factory.
