Towing with activematic
« on: June 12, 2017, 01:07:07 AM »
After recently buying a 1.5 activematic 2013 I was disappointed to be told that you cannot tow anything with this model. Curious to find out why as the manual version can tow up to 1000kgs, I called Mazda main office and asked them. They were slow to answer and were quite cagey to be honest. They said the tech guys were concerned about transmission oil temperature rise when towing which is a major factor in premature auto box  wear so signed the model off as a no tower. In other words sub standard spec. I did some research of my own and found that a secondary oil cooler can be fitted which should rectify the problem.
I just wondered if anyone here had done any towing with this car?
