I have a manual transmission and there is a clunk noise from 2nd to 3rd gear at high speeds all the time and seems to be getting worse. My friend has an 2006 Mazda 6 manual with the same problem, was wondering if there was any kind of recall on this because we have the same problem on similar vehicles

For it having so few miles 60K and having been serviced with synthetic transmission oil, this car shift hard from first and second at regular temperature. On cold starts car shift harder and at times turns off or losses power.

The transmission in my 2007 Mazda 6I ve started shifting hard and slipping. The transmission, after changing transmission fluid by dealership, has now gotten worse. 2nd and 4th gear do not work. 2nd gear is skipped and the transmission is slipped into 3rd, and going into 4th, the transmission fails to shift into 5th, as 4th gear doesn't do anything but rev constantly, like it is in neutral.

2007 Mazda6 with "noise" in the front end, many people with same problem reporting online. The noise, a clunking, has been there since the car was new, but at 45K it became worse, where one could hear it constantly upon turning the wheel/braking. Like front end was falling off. Now the dealer says it is the rotating arms in the front and that it is not dangerous to drive it this way with the constant groaning while one turns the wheel. Also, online folks said they had thicker grease put into the steering column (which was extremely loose all the time). The dealer did put the grease in and now the steering is a little stiffer and better, but the noise in the front end continues. What began with a new car having a small "clunk" with the turn of the steering wheel, has become a full blown issue. People online all have repeated my exact complaint on this car. We all wonder, "is it really safe" to drive? warranties are of course gone, though power train warranty still in effect, (car not yet three years old, but exceeding mileage for warranty ) Mazda will not honor their power train warranty, even though' the rotating arms are connected to it. As with most people complaining online, Mazda replaced my brakes --I paid out 800 today and 250 for a rental car. Certainly, based on all of us consumers having the exact same complaint, something should be done to reel in Mazda to do what is right with these cars. (see online blogs for investigation). Thank you.

Mazda sedan6 purchased 05/2007- current mileage 2800- discovered oil leak at engine rear main seal. Service mgr offered to correct problem. Oil leak not noticeable-oil dropping on under engine shield and coagulating. Low mileage might indicate problem existed at time of manufacture. If so, replacement of vehicle is proper action on part of manufacturer/seller.
