transmission problems

Asked by Jul 01, 2007 at 04:50 PM about the 2002 Mazda Protege

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is there any known problem with the Mazda protege 2002  5 door transmission or controls thereof.  There always seemed to be a problem with the overdrive light coming off and on out of nowhere.

Now, while driving, the tranny went out completely, on a 5 year old car, well maintained, with 25K miles.

Any history on this?  thanks.

There are no reports of any major transmission issues. I think you have just gotten extremely unlucky. In a car with only 25,000 miles that should not be happened. If you need to take it to a specialist I have always had a pleasant experience with Aamco Transmission Specialists. I may be mistaken but I think they will do a diagnostic check for free. Good luck.
