The check engine light comes on. I had the code checked and it is the cooling sensor. The vehicle is not overheating and light will go off for a short time and then come on again.

I currently own a Mazda 6 (2006) which I acquire O March 13, 2007. Since February 15, 2007 my car started to stalls and shut off. I had taken my vehicle back to the dealer (Mazda jim click) for repairs since the problem arise. When I bought the vehicle I also paid for an extended warranty platinum (pas). The extended warranty is for 72 months or 100,000 miles which ever occurred first which include any mechanical or electronic problems in the vehicle. The vehicle had been in the services department for repairs five different occasions. They had exchanges parts off the vehicle because apparently that was the issue but up to this moment the problem persists. Back in June 6, 2006 I took my vehicle back to the dealer for the same issue. The service department kept my vehicle for 39 days; my car was return to me on July 15, 2008 and apparently again the car was fixed. On August 2, 2008 the vehicle stall and shut off again; the problem persist for 3 days on a roll and that's when I decide to call jim click so they can towed the vehicle back to the dealer. Since that date the dealer is still trying to locate what is causing the vehicle to stall. Now the dealer decides to exchange the computer in the vehicle. When the dealer towed by vehicle back to the service department on August 4, 2008; I informed the service department manager that I will be contacting the BBB for this issue. Current miles: 52300 (aprx.). at this moment I have a claim open with the BBB and Mazda North american operations has contact me.

: the contact stated while applying brake pressure in stop and go traffic, the engine stalled without warning. Afterwards, the check engine light illuminated momentarily, and the engine was easily restarted. The dealer inspected the vehicle, and performed a diagnostic test which did not produce any failure codes. The manufacturer was alerted.

MAZDA6 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Engine power decreases substantially going uphill when you push accelerator. Even after the recall item was fixed (reprogrammed computer), it still does it, especially on other then 93 octane gas which is not always available. When merging into traffic, had a few close calls with accidents.
