Very glad to own one!
Bought in October 2011, and so far nothing at all.
This is now my third Mazda 6 in a row (getting boring, what? No!), and each one gets better; a rare feat.
Reliability has been stellar with all of them. I've read a lot of complaints about diesel engined versions, but the petrol is faultless. Fuel economy is impressive for a large, elegant & practical car. Has gone as low as 6.6l/100km on trips, and 7.2 is easy with fast driving.
The new model certainly has more pliant suspension. Would not go higher than 17" wheels though on any car. It is quiet and very agile to drive; exciting even. The steering wheel functions have been improved, and this is welcome for the driver.
Been on a long trip to Britain and back, and the car was very comfortable; it's an immense load carrier with the seats down flat, so was simple to do.
Criticisms? Really only one, the fuel computer has no time elapsed function.
This car really pleases the driver and passengers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
