Hey guys,

I know this topic has probably been beaten to death and I've spent the last 3 hours reading the entire forum it seems that the Mazda6 seems to have plenty of problems. My family is thinking about purchasing a Mazda6 in the near future, and now that I've read about some of the problems I'm starting to have second thoughts. So basically, I'd like to hear some of your opinions about the Mazda6 (problems, etc). Also, if we are to purchase do you guys think we should buy a new 2006 or a 2005? Thanks for your help and all opinions are welcome!

-Patrick

Well my husband bought his Mazda 6, new in 2004 and all recall work was done and it only had 11 miles on it and they even had authorize after market work done for him. Depending where you are and how good the dealership is when it comes to maintence will make a differnence. The only thing he did after getting the car was put an after market tranny cooler and change the transmission fluid out to semi synthetic. He does this because we travel alot (military). I have a 2002 626 and I did the same as soon as I got my car, I keep up with my regular maintence, but hey my friends all got more expensive car than me about the same time, one ended up turning hers in "lemon law" another with a Camery, ended up putting a tranny cooler on hers for the same reason to save the transmission. My co-worker just had his Passet at the dealership for some major work done and his car was there for about 3 weeks. Just from paying attention to all my neighbors we all have something to do to our cars on way or another, it just denpends on the maintence and any other knowledge you can get from sites like these.

A new 06 will have almost all the problems ironed out from the first three links. CRP's are commonly reported problems, (from owners), which have yet to be addressed in a mazda TSB or MRI.

this is a forum, which means the people that have problems will first turn the internet, its a very good car, just remember that when first introduced ANY car will have little issues designers couldn't have predicted for

I am banned.

I believe this forum is intended to address all the problems Mazda6 have, so we can get solutions. If you go to a Honda Accord forum, you will see a lot of problems listed there too, although it's a very reliable sedan.

I suggest you go ahead and buy it, Mazda6 is very fun to drive and it handles like a sports car.

Thanks dude, At least, I am now aware of the problem and can keep a periodic check on it. Appreciate your assistance.
