2015 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

The car looks good ,but the metal used on the body is so light it dents and dings up easily. And has so much road noise inside during normal operation you have to turn up the radio to drown it out. I've owned cars having a standard transmission and don't ride the clutch pedal and can shift without using the clutch most of the time ,also replaced some clutches , overhauled to replace bearings myself also . Bought this car used from my brother who also drives a lot of standard trans. The car did not show any warning signs of a clutch going out -no hints; like smell ,sound ,or shifting problems . One day i drove it two miles from the house to a friends place, came out hours later to drive home and car would not go above 2mph in any gear . I bought this car because of the factory warranty still on it . Called 1-800-mazda-getlost . [they say a clutch is a wear item ,just like the brake shoes are and it is not covered .] I can understand that wear item part , but the car is just three years old and clutch should not be worn out and should of at least lasted 60,000 miles like their powertrain warranty . Of course the dealer in town does not have the clutch pack in town and will have to have it shipped up , or i could get it sooner if i pay 2nd day air freight ! I told them; its not tying up my shop , i can wait till it arrives . I have my old reliable car still ,which has 78,000 miles on it's clutch - i'll just drive that until you get the parts in to fix this mazda . They now replied back saying they'd cover the freight ,lol! The cost is about $400 - $500 more in alaska than down in the states for the same repair at any of mazda's authorized dealers shops . Mazda would not help lower price in any way due to the excuse they use ( everybody has different driving characteristics , so they have to decline and the car is out of 12,000 mile warranty for the clutch] . I've researched online after this problem arose, and found i'm not the only one with this same problem with this model of car with the same excuse used and shared that information with Mazda . Others have purchased this model new from a dealer and had to replace the clutch twice before reaching 10,000 miles on it- saying the parts had a defect and they had to be sent to the manufacture . Which is covered under their warranty ,but after that you get the run around excuse next time . Mazda knows they have a poorly built clutch including the [ dual mass flywheel ] they stuck with it , that should of never been put in this car . They will not admit it - and sticks it to the poor consumer. I told them i would join the other fellow owners online that are tired of this premature clutch failure and i will sell this car before it happens again . Looked around for a racing aftermarket flywheel and clutch which would hold up longer than this poor design -so far, still no options yet on the market that i've found yet . Looks as if only California owners are included in a class action lawsuit against Mazda pertaining to this matter currently .

2015 Mazda 6 i Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

This was top end trim and complaints may not apply to other trims or newer years. The low profile wheels and tires were an awful combination for comfort and noise. If you drive over a dime you can tell if it is heads or tails. Had to have wheels repaired twice after pot holes. New tires helped somewhat with the noise but still loud. Newer years have more sound deadening and insulation. Great gas mileage, reliable and fun to drive on twisty roads. We bought this trim to get the active safety features - they are now available on lower trims that come without the punishing low profile wheels and tires. I'm 6'2" with a bad back and getting in and out is no fun. Would have loved this car 30 years ago. Time for a CUV.

Review

The 6 is not for every driver. If you like driving - it's for you. If you want pure comfort, than look somewhere else. The nav is no better than a Garman, but sound from Bose speakers in the Grand Touring is very good. I had the car for 4 years and 40000 miles. Nothing broke. Only oil changes and tire rotations. The OE tires and battery were still in good shape after 40000 miles. Car was still tight and rattle free after 4 years. Even the light colored Almond leather still looked brand new after 40000 miles - I would clean it at least every month with VLR. Purchased for $28k - traded in 4 years later and got $15k.

Review

okay im gonna start of by saying this. If you put premium gas in your mazda 6, you notice a significant increase in speed. I started putting premium gas in my mazda 6 and i noticed my cart started accelerating much faster. The car is really enjoyable to drive and for how fast it is, its really good on gas. i recommend the gt version. Very nice car and nice interior. Their resale value is poor. But the car is so reliable why would you sell it?
