I had happily owned 2 mazda 6 2006 sedan and wagon and was considering another when the diesel comes out.
That was last week.
This week without warning the clutch pedal went to the floor and made a loud bang grinding noise.
Car has extended warranty from Mazda we had told mazda for over a year hard to get into reverse and 1-2 chatter noise but never got any resolution on this.
Took car in dealer said it would be a clucth which is not covered I was not happy but somewhat ok with that. It turns out that went the part failed Throwout bearing it destroyed the transmission and that is not covered (Mazda Customer service must know about the problem as they tell you not covered and basically hang up on you.
Same with MEPP which I paid a great deal of money for Bumper to bumper Extended total care which is supposed to cover manual trans but somehow does not.
getting rid of both cars and may have to junk my other car which went from being worth 10k to 0. in an instant by a bearing which should be covered.
DON"T BUY MAZDA they don't stand behind the product.
Always dealer serviced and just was serviced and passed MAZDA (Green light thing they give you every time it's serviced making you feel like it's all good which is a lie.
3000.00 to replace the clutch is insane It's not a skyline GTR
