2018 Yaris iA - Changing the ATF?

I took my Yaris iA to my mechanic and he said that he couldn't find the dipstick or figure out how change the ATF on my Yaris.

Is there a basic way to do this or is there something special about the 2018's? I was told that our engine was different than normal. That much I know.

The iA version of the Yaris is simply a rebadged Mazda2 sedan with the Mazda SkyActiv engine/powertrain/etc. - so anyone who can service a modern-day Mazda3 sedan/hatch can also service an iA.

Why would you want to change the ATF on a 1 year old car? The modern low viscosity ATF's like Toyota WS or Dextron VI are all semi or full synthetic and last a very long time. I don't know what the ATF service interval is for a 18 Yaris iA but it has to be at least 100K miles.

I agree 1 year is too early but I have read Toyota w/s leaves a lot to be desired . My 2007 shifts so much better with amsoil fluid in the transaxle.

It has that over that many miles but a gross amount of the miles are on highway so it's hard to gauge. It still doesn't labor too much, but I looked to get it done anyway as a precaution. Engine is a champ and we're religious about getting the oil changed (fully synthetic only).

The mechanic tells me it's 'sealed' and that he can't access the transmission. He called to another guy and said he didn't have the setup to do it either.

So I think for whatever reason I have to take it to a dealership which I fear. I have a terrible history with dealerships sales and service. So much I bought this car through Hertz. If I could find a mechanic that could do the job I'd pay double, but I don't think that is the deal with this model. Even the fuses on this thing are custom.

The ATF required for it is Mazda FZ fluid.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

If the transmission is sealed you don’t need to service the fluid.
Look at what the manual says, should be detailed in there.
