2005 Mazda MAZDA6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Poor performance and reliability. New 6 speed constantly needs to be recalibrated. Ticking noise from valves requires valves to be retorqued. Throttle assembly went out, and now there is a knocking noise coming from the engine between 700 and 1200 rpm. Not a purge control solenoid as told by dealer and manufacturer. Let the buyer beware.
Great looking car with interior and exterior styling.
Manufacturer needs to stand behind warranty and find the problem with the knocking engine and the new 6 speed transmission.
