Mazda Drops The Ball
By truedriver45 on


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


I've owned plenty of cars both in Europe and America, and I have to say unequivocally that 'this' car was the absolute worst. I'm not some young guy that abuses automobiles. I
replaced the clutch twice, and the transmission once. The first time the transmission went out, it was at 108k (clutch as well).
I've had an ongoing problem with the hydraulic clutch for over 20k, until it was finally resolved by replacing the clutch pedal and completely draining the entire hydraulic reservoir. Car nearly stranded me and my family 70 miles from home when the transfer case went out. I must have spent over 5k in repairs, and I only owned the car for 4 yrs. If you see this car, run, don't walk away...

Looks good

Worst Features

I highly recommend that Mazda kidnap a few Honda or Toyota Engineers and force them to design a product that actually has longevity and reliability.
