Best value for money ever

published

Bought this Sedan GG 2l Gasoline born 2002 from the first owner 5 years ago. 127000 Km on the clock, it now shows 195k. When I took the car over, it was in immaculate condition, as it is nowadays. Never had any trouble, only to change a bulb, tyres and one minor and common issue (clogged air throttle valve), a 20 minutes job. Had it never serviced, just one oil change and one single adjustment of the oil level. Ok, I'm an elderly and gently driving person. And the car is kept in garage and not used in winter time. But it looks and drives almost like new despite its 18 years and high mileage. A very persuasive experience.

Purchased in April 2015 at Switzerland for $5,000.00.

Perfect family wagon

published

We have owned a Mazda6 wagon now for almost 18 months & it has been bullet-proof! A trip from Sydney to Melbourne & across Mt Gambier in South Australia, the comfort for passengers, the great driving experience for the driver & the load carrying capacity. Also the costs of running are another great incentive.

Long term durability was not there

published

Disappointing sums up the 2010 Mazda6 classic. A great car to drive but was let down by three major items that went at once. They were clutch, gearbox (2nd started to crunch even with clutch pushed in) and the air conditioning unit stopped working. Even my 17 year old 626 was better than this and my original 323 is still going after 250ks.

As I said the car was great to drive but the headlights and the Bluetooth were poor. The headlights were an easy fix but the Bluetooth system was not good in dialling numbers which could take five to six goes.

Thank goodness I sold the car and my current 2010 Mazda3 SP25 has been faultless and a great drive and reclaims my faith in Mazda's products.

A/C clutch failed at 137k. $2k for part from Mazda, plus labour, plus other parts. The last straw...

Have a 2008 Mazda 6 wagon since new. Needs new sas module.

published

Have a 2008 Mazda 6 wagon since new. 121230 kms. Air bag light now comes on and off continuously. Mazda service department in Taree attended to this yesterday. But light came on before I had left their building. Flashes on and off continuously. Mazda Taree stated a new module is needed. Cost including labour is $1170. Do I need this. Vehicle runs perfectly except for this.

Purchased in February 2008.

Great car, comfortable and smooth

published

I got the car and it only had 26k on it
Transmission and engine were very smooth
It had alot of power fir a 4 cylinder engine which i didnt expect.
Took it with the family to Canberra and back for a day drive and it was beautiful on the hwy so i took it to Wollongong, the Entrance etc

It had alot of boot space
Sound system was the best
Biggest mistake i made when i sold it
