Mazda 6 2006 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 6 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Blown turbo on 2006 Mazda 6 diesel

    If the engine is damaged as you state the best option is probably to buy a sound used engine from a wrecker. Rebuilding the engine could cost $5000, a good used engine should be bought for less than $2000.

  • Mazda 3: Excessive fuel consumption

    When doing your research you need to dig deeper and find out the claimed fuel consumption for city and country driving. The Mazda 3 manual is claimed to return on average 7.9 L/100 km, but when you look at the claims for city and country you find that it does 10.8 L/100 km and 6.2 L/100 km respectively, which lines up reasonably well with your experience remembering that the claimed figures are not real life ones like your own are.

  • Mazda discs warped

    It's frustrating that discs should need replacing at such low kays, but it's not that unusual today. You got 65,000 km out of the second set of discs, which is par for the course. It is something I think carmakers should be looking at and developing new materials or whatever to extend the life of the brakes.

  • Mazda 6 maintenance costs

    Mazda's maintenance schedule suggests that the fluid and fluid level be inspected every 20,000 km, so the dealer has done the right thing and checked yours at the appropriate service. He's also done the right thing in warning you that it could need changing at the next service, and given you a possible cost. Some automatic transmission specialists, those of the old school anyway, are adamant that the transmission fluid should be changed every 20,000 km to keep the transmission alive and well. It would seem the dealer has given you good advice on the possibility you might need to change the  fluid, although the cost does seem a little high. Ask the dealer for a breakdown of the costs so you can see what the fluid costs and how much time you're being charged for. That should tell if you are being overcharged.
