2011 Mazda 6 2.0 petrol

Summary:

Very useful and very, very fun

Faults:

Just regular care and maintenance.

One rear disc needed replacement at 75000 due to worn out pads digging into it.

General Comments:

First the looks. It is the best looking caravan (estate) car in 2011; very sleek and curvy, love it.

Interior is cavernous, very comfortable for passengers front and back, comfortable on long trips. The electronic bells and whistles feel a little dated, and the voice recognition needs some work, but everything works nice in the end. The boot space and the innovative boot cover are very clever and useful.

The engine is quite quick, nothing too overpowered, but gets you where you need to be. The fuel consumption was around 9,1L/100km without me worrying about it.

The suspension is amazing, it turns very sharply and accurately, very little body roll, and it follows the line you give it, no guesswork at all. The car feel very stable and is a joy to take out on curvy roads, and also behaves very well in snow.

One fault with the design is the position of the windshield wipers; they are out of the way of the driver (and the heat), so in a snow storm they tend to accumulate snow and ice, rendering them useless after a while.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2011 Mazda 6 TE 1.8

Summary:

Very comfortable and reliable family car, and it's very nicely designed

Faults:

Nothing yet, it seems to be a very reliable car.

General Comments:

This car is very big and roomy. Has soft seats, which makes it very comfortable.

The 1.8 petrol engine is very solid for this dimension, and it doesn't consume too much petrol.

For that price it has very big equipment. Mine is the TE. I only don't like the interior plastic on the central console in the car.

The car itself is not very heavy, and that makes 1.8 petrol engine seem to be a little faster than its rivals like Citroen C5 or Opel Insignia.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
