I bought the vehicle in January of 2004 with 36,000 miles on it. The transmission stopped shifting into 1st and 2nd gears. The transmission was replaced in Feb of 2005 with a rebuilt transmission by the dealer. Recently the car had the o/d light flash and it will not shift into gear. It will not engage in reverse. With 85,000 miles on the vehicle the transmission now needs to be rebuilt again after less than 3 years.

No specific event lead to this, just parking the car normally running an errand and trying to drive home. The first time this happened (about 9 months ago) my daughter was stuck at 11pm the car would not move into any gear. The tow truck driver told us the cable underneath probably disengaged. We towed it to our repair shop and they replaced the cable. Since then when the car is in reverse it intermittently seems to stick causing it to delay moving or jerking back. We brought it back to the shop and insisted they put on a new cable . Last week (approx Aug 24th) my daughter once again called that the car would not move out of the parking space, it wouldn't go into any gear. The tow truck again towed us to the shop where they reported that the cable was fine etc and they couldn't locate the problem. This costs me money and time everytime I have to leave work, get it towed and spend repair fees. Not to mention the added stress of the car being unreliable. I decided to look for recalls and known defects out here. I cannot believe that with the number of problems reported Mazda/Ford is not helping those of us who are loyal to Mazda. I purchased 2(used) from hertz and a 2005 Mazda 6 a few months ago. With 3 Mazdas sitting in my driveway im especially interested to see what's being done about this problem. Why hasn't Mazda/Ford paid for the transmission problem ??? maybe we should start a class action suit>I expect at the least repair to my vehicle whether or not it means a new transmission, not a used or rebuilt one. Im still making payments on this car! the funny thing is a few years back I had a Ford taurus that jerked forward so badly it caused me to have an accident, I wish I had known about this problem before. In addition weve already had the axles replaced, and several brake jobs but the brakes continue to squeak like they need new brakes.

Failure Date: 01/03/2005

Transmission failure. Was on my way home and the car just stop at an intersection and would not shift into gear. The only operable gear was reverse. I was lucky, no accidents. Towed car to a mechanic, the transmission is completely gone. Mazda charges $2500 for a new one, when they are aware of their transmission problems.

When consumer started up car itcould not be put in gear. Took to dealer, and they adjusted the problem. Consumer felt that there still was a problem because it happened again. But, consumer was able to put in gear. Mechanic said problem was caused by putting hand on top of gear shift lever. Consumer felt this did not make sense.
