Mazda 6 2016 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mazda 6 2016 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Best car for a sales rep?
I would question the Renault if you're doing lots of kays in then country. I'm sure it would be reliable, but having it serviced when you need to could be an issue if you're away from a main city. The Kia is a good choice, so too are the Mazdas. You could add the Honda Accord, Subaru Liberty and Suzuki Kizashi to your list.
Mid-size hatch to replace i30?
You don’t say what makes it hard to get in and out for you, so I’m taking a stab in the dark. There are a couple of possibilities, one being that the doors are too short and don't open wide enough, another is that it’s too low. A move to a mid-size hatch like a Mazda6, Honda Accord or Subaru Liberty would probably address the first, while a high-riding SUV such as a Kia Sportage, Hyundai iX35 or Mitsubishi ASX would help with the second.
Mazda 6 2016: Diesel particulate filter problems?
I couldn't say with any confidence that the problem has been sorted and I would be reluctant to recommend the car to you given that you travel short distances. I have asked Mazda to comment and will get back to you once that response has been received.
Passat, Liberty or Mazda 6?
Until this week I would have said the Passat was fine but I've just run into a problem with a VW test car. I would now punt for the Liberty, which has just been updated and gets The Tick.
Mazda 6 2014: Bright sunlight through windscreen
Mazda spokeswoman Karla Leach might have the answer for you, as well as some good news on sun damage: “The angle of the windscreen is very similar to the previous model but in the current model car has moved 100mm rearward relative to the previous model. However, the windscreen blocks out 100 per cent of UVA and UVB rays, and 46 per cent of heat. The side windows block out 91 per cent UVA and 100 per cent of UVB rays.”
