    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.

    My car

    Bought this car drove it for 320 miles and the third gear started to crunch, garage said new gear box needed. They gave me a new car and exactly the same thing has happened again at exactly the same mileage. Has anyone else had this problem?

    My car

    I've had awful reliability issues with this model. I took it to a main dealer to get the AC fixed. After having the car returned from the dealer, apparently after the AC had been fixed, the AC compressor went on the car.

    The car now cannot be driven unless the compressor is replaced, after the dealer replaced the AC gas. That will cost around 700 quid.

    The clutch is very flaky. I was told that it was the way I drove, which is rubbish as I have driven many other cars over the 100,000 miles without any problems.

    Avoid this car like the plague. It's a bad car and Mazda has bad dealerships.

    My car

    I am due to change my 6 soon and not once in 3 years has my 6 coughed or splutterd never mind fail to start.I chose the mazda because of how cheap it was compaird to the new vw golf.the only probs I have had were down to the dealer.while always polite I had a few minor issues.I picked my car up brand new with scratches on the boot and both services my car has had took all day even though promised would just be couple of hours and when I complained I was told it was just being washed only to find on collection it hadn't !I even had the dealer phone me after having my car for 18 months asking me if I'd like the test drive I'd booked online,only 2 years too late!the mazda handles absoloutly fantastic for such a big car,a touch firm but I prefere that.the engine is a touch under powered but can shift when pushed, I think the 2 litre would be much better suited and most prob even more economical as I only get about 30mpg but thats with not much motorway driving even less when driven hard.I think the car a bit heavy for a 1.8 which affects mpg. the car itself has been ace,no trim rattles if even a little cheap looking but one thing that really annoys me is the windows mist up very easily in cold or wet weather this is sorted by the aircon "blast" button but at least I found out why the button was there! there is tons of room in the front and back.the grey velour seats are supprisingly easy to keep clean and the boot is huge.
