Best car for a sales rep?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Oct 2016

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.

Recommendations for a new station wagon

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Sep 2016

You are choosing from a good line-up as all three of your contenders get The Tick from me. My personal ranking puts the Passat ahead of the Outback but there is no reason not to go ahead with the Subaru.

Mazda 6 2016: Touring Wagon cargo cover?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Jul 2016

A cargo cover and a cargo net are included in the standard features of the Mazda 6 wagon. If you feel they are not enough I'm sure the dealer could have a hard cargo barrier fitted for you.

Mid-size hatch to replace i30?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2016

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.

Best family car under $20k?

Answered by CarsGuide 9 May 2016

The Camry is a good choice, it's well-built and reliable, and won't cost the Earth to service. Another to consider would be the Mazda 6, also a well-built and reliable car of about the same size as the Camry.

Mazda 6 2016: Diesel particulate filter problems?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Apr 2016

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?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Mar 2016

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

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Feb 2016

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.”
