What used Mazda 6 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mazda 6 estate?

Mazda dealers charge plenty for servicing and repairs, although most, at least, will treat you politely and fairly. During the car's early years, it is probably worth staying with them to get a set of Mazda stamps on the service records.

Because Mazdas are so dependable, you shouldn't see many unexpected bills until well into the 6's life. Switching to an independent garage should cut your costs, but it may not be as easy to find a specialist as if you owned a Ford or Vauxhall. On the other hand, it keeps a bigger chunk of its value over time than a Mondeo or Vectra.
