MAZDA6 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 12,000 miles


I leased my fully loaded 2006 Mazda A6 back in December of 2005. Ever since then, I have had trouble with the car. First, the driver side window was not going down. A few days after I bought the car, I realized that the turbo kept giving out on me. Then I came across a huge dilemma, where the limited slip differential, drive shaft, and all the bolts and hinges had to be replaced because of a bolt which was not torque enough. Then, the brakes kept making an annoying noise even without the brakes applied at low and high speeds. Subsequently, the tires wear and tear was horrible at 6,000 miles, to the point where I should have replaced them, and Mazda didn't do anything about it. Later I found out that the air pressure in the tire was too low. After that, the keyless entry/keyless start remote stopped working, and had to open the car manually, which got fixed after 2 attempts, and just replaced the whole thing. Now, there is a problem with the rear axle, and how it has to be replaced, because when the limited slip differential problem came across, they neglected to look or fix the axle from the start. Now they have the courage to tell me that I have to pay for the axle, and rent a car, and all the expenses, because they were negligent of looking at it from the start. They are blaming the axle issue on the tires, when they were bad to start with and the tires that were going bad were the front ones, not the rear.

A potentially harmful characteristic of the power window function. I noticed that if momentary contact of the window close switches were made (of a long enough duration) the windows would close automatically. If the operator were to discover that the wrong window was being closed.....simply letting up on the switch would not stop the power window function. The window would continue to raise, even if someone's arm or extremity was in the window. If a person were to make such an error of selecting the wrong window with normal power windows.....simply letting up on the switches stops the operation. This was not the case with the 2006 Mazda 6 that I leased. I did not test the force that the window was capable of exerting before stopping on its own. I imagine on a small child that it would not take much force to be harmful or fatal.
