Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.
Dear customer, I understand the positions of the technicians who were advising up to now, from my perspective I observed that the vehicle was working correctly at the transmission level until it was parked for those six months, so I'm going to focus on what could have happened within those six months with a vehicle turned off and I agree with the Mazda technician from Croatia, because the first technician is indicating that the ideal would be not to repair the vehicle, because the transmission replacement or rpair costs and at the computer level are higher than the cost of the vehicle but I do not agree with.
I think from my position that you should do first do a good maintenance to the transmission basically a replacement of the fluid and the filter also agree with the second technician to do a job at the software level, but if it is In your possibility, I would make a replacement of the transmission module, already programmed, because the time the vehicle was stopped, the humidity may have damaged it, and this computer can be obtained at very affordable second-hand costs, to give you an idea. one of the last quotes for these modules but for another Mazda model was not more than 100 pounds, so we would be talking about that you could spend around 300 pounds on this repair attempt and there is a high probability that the vehicle gets back working correctly.
My goal is to give you the best advice i can based on your description, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
