Hi, does anyone know when exactly the Mazda 6 2.5 L Skyactive models got the engine with the cylinder deactivation function? I think it was about 2017 or 18.
Does the model number, e.g. 1031, give a clue to this?
Thanks.

Hello there my wife has a Mazda 6 gg 2002 auto. I’m just wondering if a 2004 auto gearbox will fit her car not sure if they are the same gearbox.

When she leaves for work in the morning and goes to take off it revs out and has no acceleration and the car does not go anywhere. But when the car is warm it sometime doesn’t do it.

Hi,
I am not sure if that will fit.
Is it a CVT gearbox? if so, maybe the bands are gone.
Check the transmission oil incase its low. and replace it a couple of times with new filter. sometimes this resolves the issue.

I have a 2016 Mazda 6 diesel and I think my fuel economy is terrible…it’s getting 7.8 per 100km.
What’s everyone else getting please?

People buy cars with diesel engines because they want the motors to last and to keep their car for a long time. Due to the Ukraine war prices of diesel are over $2 a litre. This is costing you $16 per 100 km. An expert tune up is worth every dollar at present. Otherwise think of a secondhand Plugin Electric/petrol Outlander which will deliver around 100 km for $3.50 at current prices. And cost you nothing for aroujnd town drives.

I've got the 2018 mazda 6 diesel sedan. I'm getting 6.6 per 100km in town and 5.6 per 100km on the highway. I drive sedately but never so slow as to hold up traffic.

Hmmm just as I suspected!
Okay thanks for your reply, I’ll have to see how it goes after a service & tune up but it’s not looking good.

How did it end up ?

Veronica D.

Actually much better since the service, it’s now getting 6.7 so I’m pretty happy with that!
I only bought the car 8 months ago and who knows how they treated it before that. Thanks for asking Bruce.

I brought a GH Mazda 6 ltd 2010 GEN 2 and its the best car I have ever owned the 2.5 lt engine is awesome providing heaps of power too. Nothing has broken on it . I just upgraded suspension with H&R springs and Powered shocks , also a engine strut brace its lowered about 30mm and sits well on the road .

I have a 2010 Mazda 6 luxury sports, purchased 2nd hand nay21 with only 135k on odometer. The car has run beautifully until may 29th this year. I exited one road into another and when I went to accelerate, the entire dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree and the car went ‘limp’. I pulled up immediately and contacted roadside assist. While waiting I switched engine off. When tow arrived, I started car and only oil light showing so he drove it onto flatbed. I went with him and he drove it off flatbed and parked at my mechanic. My mechanic wasn’t able to look at it until 2 weeks later and advised he thought I had a water leak into engine and had shorted out the cpu? and starter motor and now the car is not running at all. He advised to call insurance who then towed car to their repairers.
Another 3 weeks later and I’ve been denied insurance and car towed back home. But now I have a car full of water - totally saturated inside and full of mould. Until this instance there were absolutely no signs of water leaks, no smells, dampness or condensation, no mechanical hiccups or other trouble. Not sure what to do but the car was going and they’ve returned my car which is a complete write off

That’s shocking, could something possibly have happened to it at the mechanics?

Carol O.

It absolutely had to have been caused by the mechanics, no other way my previously dry car could have gotten so full of water. It’s absolutely disgraceful that they won’t even take ownership of their total screw up

Under my 2008 awd 6 speed 2.5ltr GH series Mazda 6 or altenza as they are called in New Zealand is a square hole under that motor in which I can see what looks to be the fly wheel. from the hole I get the odd oil leak. Is this something I should worry about. Its not noticeable oil usage wise as yet.

My Mazda 6 hatch GH, 2010 luxury sports model, (sunroof, leather seats, navigation system etc) passenger side dash has just recently started "melting" after being parked in the sun (Brisbane QLD) for a few hours over several days. This car is garaged every night, when at head office it is parked under shade sails or totally undercover. It has 96000 km on the clock. Not a lot of Kilometers as I have another older Mazda 626 that I use for a lot of other tasks, such as parking at bus stations, etc. Is Mazda Australia replacing these obviously faulty dash's? Mine is under ten years old and in America they accepted the fault and extended the warranty to ten years for the dash. I see the Mazda 3 also has the same problem as well. Seen footage where Current Affairs in New Zealand got involved for a owner who was ignored from the start and the issue was resolved free of charge, after their involvement. I had the previous Mazda 6 Hatch 2006, model GG from new and never had an issue with it. Only sold it last year, 2019. If they are not willing to fix it I doubt I will buy another new Mazda. Will they replace it? It should be done free of charge.

Update, went to Mazda Mt Gravatt (QLD) today (28/01/2020) and they are going to fit a new passenger side dash on Friday (31/01/2020). That is the section of dash that is affected, in three days time at no charge. Excellent response, Zoom, Zoom Mazda.

Mazda6s purchased in 2014. Front Ball Joints need replacing. Should this happen in a car that has done just 98,000km? Manufactures warranty?
