Throwout baring destroys you Tranny!!!!
2016 Mazda Mazda3 i Grand Touring
I used to love my car until two weeks ago. I have a manual transmission and hit 99,200 miles when I suspected my clutch was going. Normal at almost 100,000 miles. Well, what’s not “normal” is the throw out baring going out and destroying my transmission. I’ve had quite a few clutches for in all my years of driving but never once have I had a transmission be absolutely destroyed by a throwout baring. This is not normal. I immediately stopped driving the car and towed it to my mechanic when the throwout baring went. So it wasn’t driven and yet a simple normal $1,100 clutch job turns into an almost $4,000 repair. I think Mazda hasn’t fixed the “clutch” issues at all. In fact BEWARE it’s worse than prior years. Pray your throwout baring doesn’t do to your car what it did to mine. If it does then I’m thinking it’s a manufacturing defect as a tranny replacement at 100,000 miles is ridiculous!
