Dextron 3 will work just fine. The proper fluid should be listed in your Owner's Manual under "Specifications: Lubricant Quality". You don't say whether it's a manual or automatic transmission, but: For manual transmissions, Mazda specified API Service GL-4 or GL-5 SAE 75W-90. For automatic, it depends on engine size. The later 2.0L requires ATF M-III or MERCON, and the 2.5L requires ATF M-III or Dexron II (not "Dextron"). If you have any doubt, contact your local dealer's service department; they'll be glad to look it up for you.
