2008 Mazda 6 s Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


I like my Mazda. Bought it new, and now at 14k miles, having some problems. Warped front rotors, squeaking belts, steering clunk, transmission hesitant to go in gear from reverse to drive. The clunk happens mostly at low speeds, and comes from the passenger front. The tranny problem is not too good. It goes into gear when it is good and ready. It is a fun car to drive (handling) but the auto trans seems to always try to be in top gear so I am turning fewer revs. Do I really need to be in 5th gear while driving 35, turning 1800 revs? That's why I usually go 'manual' around town. It shifts to higher gears too quickly.

Best Features

Handles great, looks good, A/C is pretty strong, stereo is ok for stock, seats are very comfy, red dash at night is easy on the eyes.

Worst Features

Taking her to the dealer to resolve above mentioned issues, 21mpg for a 2.3L 4 cylinder is not great. I am sure a lot of little things got worked out on the 2009.
