Mazda 6 Review

History of the model:

Mazda 6

2012 Mazda 6

06/02 – emergence of the successor of Mazda 626 well-known way: in three versions – as a sedan with four-and five-door and wagon (also with drive to all four wheels). Petrol engines: 1.8 (88 kW/120 hp) 2.0 (104 kW/141 hp) and 2.3 (122 kW/166 hp), or a 2,0 – liter diesel engine with 89 kW/121 hp and 100 kW/136 hp

06/2004 – A new version of the model: Mazda 6 MPS 2.3 DISI, turbo engine with gasoline direct injection (191 kW/260 hp)

06/2005 – modification of the model

10/2005 – all diesel engines now produce a particulate filter

Respect! At high reliability Mazda 6 offers the right design and

There is no longer any trace of dusty Mazda 626 of your father. The bold design of the Mazda 6 resembles rather the dynamics of the Italian Alfa and makes the car look smaller than it really is.

Combi model is the longest with his 4.70 meters and has a spacious interior, as befits. Short backs of the front seats, however the overall impression a bit obscure. Good performance is the chassis, which allows for comfortable both on modern highways, and on rougher surfaces and rough surfaces. One small drawback is that the ESP-system comes standard only in 2004

With engine sounds dilemma this way: you can get a nice, but not particularly powerful gasoline engine or prefer a stronger, but more rough diesel? The bottom line, from a financial point of view, I think it is better to choose a 1.8-liter gasoline engine, which is fraught with enough power to feel good on the road.

2.3-liter gasoline costs rapidly lost, but in terms of diesel engines, where the preferred option with 121 horsepower, which is significantly cheaper, but it is much weaker or slower the version with 100 kW/136 hp

The most common problems with the Mazda 6

In the five years since Mazda 6 market failures occurred only sporadically.

Sensors: arrow tank sometimes it just shows the level of fuel, so when bad luck, you may need to stop and wait for help in the middle of the road.

Calls in the workshops of the company: the motor fades (03/2003), brake fluid sensor not functioning correctly (03/2003), compaction of the fuel injectors is not good (07/2004), protection against heat Fuel tank is good quality (07/04)

Pros: + very reliable, economical, good body, precise steering, low-cost maintenance

Cons: – the front seats are short, airbags for the driver companion can not be deactivated

An old car: Mazda 6 vs. Honda Accord

Mazda 6

2012 Mazda 6

In the 70s and 80s of the last century Europeans and Americans difficult differed Japanese cars. With few exceptions, in those days there was no particular significance whether it is a Nissan, Toyota, Honda and Mazda. These brands were not yet popular outside the home, and not very successfully design their cars looked like so much that the average Westerner was equally difficult to recognize Asian models as to name the name of the cabinet ministers Yasuhiro Nakasone only picture.

However, times have changed and the old newcomer has long been one of the strongest players in the automotive industry. From modest, drab designs of Japanese cars also remained only memories. Sometimes, however, the similarities in the faces of some of them still confuse Europeans. At the Paris Motor Show in 2002 at many of the visitors cruised stands between the Mazda and Honda, to grasp the differences between the new “six” and the seventh generation of the Accord. After eight years both cars can only complete dilettante wrong, but similarities in ravenous scowling “look” headlight-shaped grille and athletic silhouette is still eye-catching.

At first sight between the Accord and 6 can be put equal sign because of other features. Both are equally oriented clientele and betting on sporting image. Aim to customers with an active lifestyle and promises driving dynamics. Honda-th, however, is more expensive as well as new and on the secondary market.

hatchback, which offers a Mazda. In a direct comparison between the two cars is starting to show why he was the difference in price. Accord coupe was assembled perfectly and offers no chance of corrosion, while “the six” exhibits some weaknesses – mainly on the floor and the rear fender eyebrows. In 2005, Mazda upgraded model and rust problems have been solved, but the view of the cars produced before the facelift, not bad to be paid to affected areas. Corrosion on the body of the Honda-do is so clear evidence of shock and poor repair.

of the Accord. Its interior is shaped more restrained while “the six” look bright and dynamic. The materials are also better for Honda-so, but Mazda-brand sibuktivno so creates a greater sense of comfort. Assembly is level in both models, and the equipment works with typical Japanese precision and reliability.

The only exception is retail neizprevnostite sensor available front-seat passenger in some “Mazda” before upgrading. “Sixes” definitely gives the Accord in terms of sound insulation.

The barrier of the engine compartment, rear wheel arches and doors let in considerably more noise. Common feature of both cars is not so good rearward vision, due to virnatata milk.

Access to the gym gives slight edge of “the six” because of the narrow rear door Accord. The same goes for the trunk. The difference of 50-ish liter does not feel as sharp, but the back cover of Honda-so inferior practicality and depth.

among them, and V6 from Ford. On the other hand Honda never relied on quantity. Accord also be fitted with three motors, but at the expense of appropriate selected so as to meet the potential needs of the broadest possible range of buyers. Honda-th expected winning advantage in terms of performance. Its powertrain have higher liter capacity, which ensures the model more impressive performance despite the liability of 100-150 kg. The word says and system modification phase timing. Such missing from liter bikes to 2005 Mazda diesel models are effective choice and although Honda has no tradition in this area, naphtha Accord modifications recommended by all.

Critical remarks are very seldom hear the engines of both cars. Their service is not the cheapest. Accord needs a valve adjustment every 45,000 km for the lack of hydraulic joints. In its factory specifications motors must be operated with plugs iridium plugs, which are not at all cheap, but in Bulgarian conditions endure 40,000 km. It is better to ensure the purity of radiators Honda-th (cooling and air conditioning). If combs them with dirt clogging risk arises from overheating.

If off-wagon version of the Mazda6 four-wheel drive, which is a rare, both models are typical of the mass middle class with a front drive axle. Honda is one of the few manufacturers in the world who continue to develop their own automatic

gearboxes

This may be explained not only by their greater mechanical strength compared to similar units in Mazda, and far more modern characteristics. Bindings of the Accord have an adaptive program that adapts to driving style, and are also matched very well to the characteristics of the engine. “Six” is equipped with “lazy” transmission, which has only four gears and sometimes unpleasant surprises nerabotosposobrost with two of them. If the previous owner was a fan of active flying, are not excluded and problems Synchro third and fourth six-speed manual transmission.

Accord won more points on the strength of the chassis. Radko investments are required before a clocking 120,000 km and the main details of the front support on 200 000 km or more. “Six” requires minor repairs such as changing the stabilizer bushings every 60,000 km. Overall, however, can also boast a strong chassis that will need repairs least 150,000 km.

Accord and 6 are as similar as they are different cars. Each of the two Japanese girls have their advantages and disadvantages. Mazda-so inferior in quality and running performance features but costs less to maintain and cheaper. Honda-so do not be so practical and ride harder, but won the race with a great engine, advanced technology solutions, especially with exemplary reliability.

Comments from owners of Mazda 6

Each product has its buyers every car breaks down sooner or later, so you have money for Mercedes to buy it and makes it a pleasure (of the price). I drive a Mazda 626GF and I’m glad the parts resource is enormous and the car is assembled and functioned perfectly. It is true that it is louder and firmer ride, but it is a compromise (mostly depends on budget). The article is very objective and its legal conclusions and not darlyayte which was better – Japanese or German car.

I just want to mention some things about the Mazda 6. So maintenance is terribly expensive and just replacing supplies to prepare a grand, and if something breaks, parts and a lot of money, are more expensive than the Mercedes, so I do not praise those Japanese girls. For Honda not familiar with things myself but I would not have bought a car ….

I have great doubt that you are familiar with the maintenance of the Mazda 6. Say what, exactly, is more expensive in maintenance and! I’ll answer for you because I know you will do it. Nothing is more expensive. Anyone can call the authorized service center and ask. I personally keep this car sixth year and prices are absolutely normal, as company service. In addition to supplies for those 6 years and 140,000 km. nothing I’ve touched. Even the clutch and brake discs have not changed. Before that I had a Ford, Opel, VW and Audi. Full of grief for maintenance. Something’s broken and something has to be done. Mazda Since I was born. Nothing to touch on it. boredom. If someone likes to tinker on cars never get my Mazda!

Do not forget that two years ago liter diesel engine was Mazda year.

Longer choose between six 2004-2005 diesel Mazda and Honda Accord 2004 diesel. Mostly announced here, mobile.de. After a few test drive and took preusmislen Budget Accord. The car is simply good management is good, diesel is much more dynamic and much more economical, but the price. Mazda 6 from that period may take about 5-6 thousand eur, while the Honda Accord, which I took to bargain on 8. I do not regret for a moment, but if money just can not reach, do not hesitate for a six-ball. The difference in price from 20 to 25% justifies the difference in the ability of the car and a great deal again. I will say that before I had an older German car and did a test drive reading other German cars of the same class and price (6-8 thousand) – you will never get a German car.

Mazda 6 Tuning

I had the good fortune to walk quite a few miles with Mazda 6 2004, 2.3 engine, automatic transmission, 167 horses, 4×4. As my colleague said, it feels great. When the engine has no reflection, change gears very smoothly, drive 4-wheel gives great stability. Consumption between 8.5 and 9.5 liters on average almost prodded including climate. His work was also perfect and generally forget about it. Very good car!

For Honda impressions I do not know her, but last year I had the good fortune to drive it almost new Mazda 6 with the 2.3 engine machine, the feeling is amazing, has many extras, road behavior is impeccable in the snow, the ice and whatnot gives an average cost around 8 per cent combined, which for this class is a dream for the German petrol. Japanese cars are top of the cake.
