About The Mazda Mazda6
The Mazda6 model is a mid-sized sedan known as the Atenza in Japan and China with initial production starting in 2002.
This is said to be the most popular model that Mazda has ever produced and it could be down to the new styling that the company tested on this release before the rest of their range.
The original first generation of the Mazda6 was available with a wide range of engines, from 1.8 litre petrol through to 3 litre petrol mated to a wide range of manual or automatic engines.
Underneath the original was built on the same platform as the company’s mid-size SUV the CX-9.
The car evolved through 3 generations of design though the choice of the engine on the newest release is slightly restricted to a 2 or 2.5 litre petrol or a 2.2 litre diesel. You are able to get hold of a 2.2 litre turbo version though to add a bit more oomph to your drive.
The newest version also has the choice of a 6 speed automatic or manual gearbox and either a front-wheel or a fixed four-wheel powered drive-train.
The 2009-2010 models were recalled in 2011 due to a problem with spiders getting into the fuel line setting off warning lights due them laying eggs and blocking them.
Common Problems With The Mazda6
- DPF – as with any diesel engine the diesel particulate filter (if fitted) can be a huge annoyance and costly to replace if needed. The issues start when the car is being used for short journeys only and the exhaust doesn’t reach a temperature capable of burning off the filtered exhaust pollutants
- Suspension – the drop links are prone to failure on the Mazda6 due to excessive wear and may need replacing if you are noticing knocking sounds
- Tyre monitoring – if you have a tyre monitoring system fitted with your Mazda6 then it could fail and give you false reports of an underinflated tyre
