2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

We purchased our car in June and loved everything about, especially the great acceleration for highway passing and interstate merging. But that was before Mazda implemented recall 4106E to eliminate engine knocking by changing the ignition timing. The recall was classified (disguised) as an emission recall so we dutifully had the recall performed in August. The result was a dramatic reduction in acceleration without a hint of the turbo kicking in. We had the dealer check out the condition and were told that all was as specified by the recall. The loss of acceleration is enough that we cannot recommend the Speed6 to anyone. Shame-Shame on Mazda for taking the Zoom-Zoom out of our Speed6!

Favorite Features

Styling, safety features, all wheel drive, traction and stability control, handling.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the loss in acceleration caused by the recall action. Surely Mazda can accomplish the stated goal of preventing engine knock without having such a loss of acceleration.
