Mazda 6 2011 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 6 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
SUV or wagon?
Definitely the Mazda6. It gets The Tick from me and wins over the SUVs on everything from fuel economy to comfort and quietness.
Parts not covered under extended warranty?
That seems like a lot of money to replace the seat mechanism, perhaps you could try an independent Mazda mechanic and replace it with used parts. That would save you some money. As for the extended warranty, you should read it and understand what is covered and what is not. The warranty is generally not from the carmaker directly, but from an insurance company and sold through the dealer. If it is correct that the failure was due to faulty welding, as you say it was suggested, then it's a problem for Mazda itself to fix.
What to pick for second hand sedan?
I'd go for the Mazda6, which has a combination of class and comfort, and not the Falcon unless you're a sporty driver. The Liberty in that age was a bit 'off' by Subaru standards because of the Global Financial Crisis, and the 3.6 is no real improvement over the 2.5 unless you tow.
Best family car for $23,000?
Of those I would recommend the Mazda6 as the first choice. I would also carefully consider the type of driving you do before leaping in and buying a diesel. Diesels are best on long runs where they can operate at their most efficient; there is no advantage if you’re doing short hops around town.
