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

Perfect for your first car

published

Generally reliable car but with age it declines. Have had multiple trips to the mechanic for leaks and replacing air filters. It really started to decline in health at 150,000 KMs. I drive the car on a daily basis. The car is serviced every 10,000 KMs at ultra tune. The drive is smooth and feels like luxury without the dent in your wallet

Poor Vision, but a comfortable drive.

published

The Good:
This Mazda 6 belongs to a friend who lives in Brisbane and I borrow it on a regular basis when I am in Brisbane.
The car is well appointed and runs smoothly and is comfortable to drive around town or on long distances ie Brisbane to Sydney and there is heaps of leg room for front and rear passengers,

The Bad:
Front windscreen view is obscured by a black box ( I guess containing the proximity sensors) that is attached to the front screen behind the rear view mirror. Not only is the driver and passenger view reduced but the box looks quite ugly. Rear vision is limited due to the low rake of the rear roof line

Great vehicle, nearly drives itself

published

Had my mazda 6 touring now for three months. great vehicle to drive, never puts a foot wrong. the vehicle has many features to aid your driving with auto lights, auto wipers, auto headlamp adjust, sensors that help position the vehicle front/rear and corners. also a great benefit is the cross traffic sensors which alert you of oncoming vehicles when backing out of driveway or carpark. I have owned mazdas before, but none as good as this.

Affordable luxury

published

I chose the Touring model. Highly recommend. Love the leather interior and the little things that make it such a joy to drive.

Bought it 2nd hand with 70,000kms on the clock. Now at 120,000 and it's no different.

A smooth running car with low running costs and no mechanical issues thus far.

Great driving experance

published

We love our car as it handles very well on the road and even better in raining conditions. The widow wipers get a little sicky and then when having to use them sometimes scrape but replacing those fixed that issue and we replaced the rims as the stock look rubbish. But the car drives very well

Great car with luxurious trim

published

Ive owned this car now for 6 months and its still an absolute pleasure to drive.
Fuel economy is not the rated 6.6, im getting around 7.1 or 7.2 l / 100 km which is still good.
Interior is beautifully done, all leather, nice trim, great sat/nav stereo
Ride is very quiet and smooth, take off is very good. Not a fan of the i-stop but can be easily deactivated (read forums)
Fixed price servicing,

Have been very happy with this car, I have the GT variant and it looks spectacular.

Good spacious car

published

The car is cool to drive and I enjoy it . It has sufficient airbags to protect ALL passengers.
The cabin height of drivers seat could have been bit more spacious. It is tough to perform head checks if you have decent height as the head touches the top even with the seat at it lowest position.

Overall good

published

Overall it is a nice car, leather interior, auto wipers, auto headlights, personalised seat controls. Only issue is the Bluetooth, it is terrible. Got to do everything over a lengthy voice control and whilst playing music it constantly drops out. I listen to a lot of music over Bluetooth so very dissapointing.
