What should I look for in a used Mazda 6 estate?
Although Mazdas are renowned as reliable pieces of engineering, clutches can be a problem on the 6.
Some diesel cars suffer from a vibrating clutch, but this can easily be cured by dealers, who will fit a modified part, and usually free of charge. Worse still, a few owners (of petrols and diesels) have reported total clutch failure with fewer than 30,000 miles on the clock, which is premature. However, when this does happen, the dealers have picked up the bill for a replacement.
