    My car

    I bought a 2.0 4 door saloon in 2002 which developed clutch judder with less than 30k miles on the clock and less than 3 years old. I traded for a new 2.0 5 door hatchback in 2005, and at 20k miles and less than 2 years old I have the same problem. Mazda UK have not been helpful at all.

    My car

    I am overjoyed with my 57 plate 2 litre TS.

    It's powerful, responsive and economical. It has good all round visibility, huge boot and a well finished cabin.

    I live on a track off a lane and do a lot of low speed town work, but if the computer is to be believed, a light touch on the controls has produced 45 miles to the gallon on its first tank of petrol.

    Looks wise it is a real head turner, attracting many positive comments.

    The only issue I have found is an occasional reluctance to go into reverse gear. The dealer says that this is not an unknown occurence and he will look into adjusting the clutch or gear box if this niggle continues.

    Overall I could not be happier with my Mazda6.

    My car

    I have recently taken delivery of my 2.0-litre TS petrol, and I am totally taken with the fit and finish, as well as the almost perfect driving experience.

    I can only imagine that once it loosens up it is going to give me the kind of drive that I really enjoy, and when it does I will let you know.
