Mazda 6 2015 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mazda 6 2015 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Why is there so much cabin noise in my 2015 Mazda 6?
US-based Bose is certainly working on a system that will cancel out noise in cars. At the moment, though, it’s not available and will probably only be fitted to brand-new cars as standard equipment. At first anyway, because tech like this has a habit of tricking down to the aftermarket. However, that’s not much help to you right now.
Wearing noise-cancelling headphones is not practical (or sensible, or legal) so you need to look at an old-school solution such as the tyres you mentioned or stripping the car’s interior and fitting a noise-suppressing matting under the carpet and inside the doors. If it’s any consolation, it’s not your imagination; Mazdas for the last 20 years have been harshly criticised for their interior noise levels when the competition seems to do it better.
Ironically, active noise cancellation technology as proposed by Bose is not to tame mechanically noisy cars, but to remove wind and road noise from electric cars which are otherwise so quiet, these secondary noises become a big nuisance.
Why doesn't my Mazda6's cruise control work?
It’s likely to be one problem that is causing all of the issues you mention. It needs a diagnostic check to locate the cause.

Good wagon for carrying lots of gear?
The Mazda6 is the best choice but could stretch your dollars. The i30 wagon also gets The Tick, so choose the one that works best for your budget.
Mazda 6 or Subuaru Liberty?
I have no hesitation is saying the Mazda6 will handle any overtaking or hill climbing tests you might throw at it. The Mazda6 will sprint from zero to 100km/h in 7.0 seconds, a tad faster than the Subaru, which requires 7.1 seconds. They both do about the same on a quarter-mile sprint. There's very little in it. I have no doubt the Mazda6 would be up to the task, but I would recommend you test-drive it and find out for yourself.
