Bad Transmission

2006 Mazda 6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

My wife bought this car almost four years and 54,000 miles ago. Just went out of warranty (50,000) and needs a new transmission. We took the car in a year ago, under warranty, and the mechanics couldn't find the problem we were having with the car slipping out of gear while accelerating. It started to get worse right after we went over 50,000 miles, so we took it back in. They isolated the issue, but said it wasn't covered by warranty anymore. No way a car with 54,000 highway miles should need a new transmission. And the fact that Mazda wouldn't stand behind the car tells me a lot about their confidence in their product. This was our first and last Mazda. Done!

Best Features

Heated seats and overall looks are good.

Worst Features

transmission! Also, the defroster doesn't work very well. Hard to keep windows clear on rainy days.

It was a recall. I went through the same thing and had it replaced at no charge.
