it might of just been my car. don’t recommend car

i was an owner of a 2006 mazda 6 facelift automatic. its had 3 brand new engines. the first time i didn’t know i didn’t have oil until the last the car broken down. no light on. 2nd time i was was going a a fairly steep hill on the highway (transmission galley)and a piston broke according to the mechanic then so i got another motor. the third time it broke the same oil problem. so i just took it to the scrap yard. p.s you xxxxxxthinking “why don’t you check the oil before driving” well i work at night and i don’t want open the hood evey time before i drive. and body would anyway.

Still manages to be more reliable than newer cars.

I bought this car about 8 months ago. It came with about 48,000 miles on it. Throughout the months, this car never gave me any issues. It has about 53,000 miles now. Just the standard maintenance such as oil changes, tires, etc. I'm so happy this car ended up being mine after a long search for a used car. Highly recommend it.

It’s a reliable car, easy to fix.

Was my daily driver until someone ran me off the road. I put new parts in a week ago until that happened. I would take up this offer asap.

Air conditioner keeps giving me trouble!!

This is the 3rd time I am replacing the condenser and the rest of the air-conditioning system. I live in a hot and humid city and the air-conditioner has to be on year-long. It is leaking freon and you can smell it inside the car. A puff of smoke comes in. The car is great overall, mechanically no complaint. But the air-conditioner is just a pain at the backside. Compared to other Japanese brands, I would rank Mazda below Toyota and Honda.

This car has been in no accidents and runs great

The mileage is awesome (2006 Mazda6). Very reliable car with no engine or transmission problems. Runs and drives great. The car has always been kept clean and in proper condition such as up-to-date servicing. Great deal for this car.

Stay away from mazda!!!

I hate this car cannot diagnose. Keeps saying same thing fixed is still bad.Check engine light came on right as I was getting home from dealership. They said they would take care of me. Car was in their shop twice and when check engine light came on again they said well try replacing the spark plugs. I am now on my own with a car that continues to have problems. Would absolutely go somewhere else

Fantastic wagon!

It’s getting harder and harder to find a cool, affordable wagon and the Mazda 6 is a favorite. They no longer make one for sale in the US, so these late models are desirable! Enjoy mine, comfortable, nice reliable V6.
