Hello to all of you. My wife and I just recently purchased a CX-3. We almost didn't because Mazda does not make much factual information public and that leaves room for a lot of false information online. Several sites claimed the CX-3 came with an unreliable Jatco CVT transmission and we did not want that. Then I came across a post on this forum by "anchorman" showing the CX-3 came with a Mazda six-speed automatic. Then knowing the model numbers from anchorman's post I then discovered that Mazda has produced millions of transmissions for Ford and their own cars. Most were "decent boxes" as one mechanic wrote. Thanks to "anchorman" we had accurate information and could buy our CX-3 with confidence. This forum is a great source of information so I decided to join and learn a few things about Mazdas.
