Once they start leaking through the weep hole, they're useless. Then you'd have to buy more of that golden coolant..

    I can't agree with that. FL-22 is not that expensive. My MX-5 has 121k on it. I replaced all of its coolant hoses at 10 years and about 105k. They looked pretty much new. I prolly wasted $75 in hoses + labor. But I consoled myself with, "they're 10 years old!"

    Preventive maintenance, yes. Maintenance for "just in case", no.

    I said it backwards, 300k on a cx5 is equal to 100k on conventional transmission. Multiple trans fluid UOAs.

    Now you got me curious. Are these UOAs you have had done or something you saw somewhere else?

    They are on here and on BITOG, extrapolated from 70k mile UOAs.

    Being that I've heard up to 90k I guess 75 isn't bad. Then again we don't have much info on skyactiv trannies long term.

    My stance is that until I start seeing oh say 10 people on this forum with 200k miles on original tranny fluid with zero issues.....I'll do drain and fills every 40k miles or so. That said for both you guys..........the outlook is getting better for the above to be the case!! If we can get more 200k people reporting in then hey one less thing to worry about.

    Coming from BMWs (with lifetime fluids lol) I proceed with caution though.

    Agreed.

    The same on VW. Its so-called OEM “life-time” ATF has the shelf-life of only 2 years!

    At least it’s not hurting anything to do the drain-and-fill once for every 50K~70K miles. SkyActiv-Drive is a conventional automatic transmission with some unique features. Mazda’s FZ ATF can’t be so unique which would outlast every other “life-time” ATF. In fact my Mazda dealer suggests ATF drain-and-fill all the time, even on friend’s 2009 Mazda6 with factory fluid for almost 100K miles!
