Well it's certainly living up to the mazda and japanese quality. feels like it could last for a long time. the controls all work well as although not supposedly premium as an audi (which in my opinion is over rated anyway) they are solid and do what they should. my only reliability gripe is actually the cd player which skips a bit but the bose sound is superb. It's not the best fuel economy in the world. but it's not unexpected and I'd rather pay a little more at the pumps for petrol refinement, lower running costs and just nicer driveability. diesels I've owned in the past have always cost more to repair and service over time! people automatically think having a diesel makes motoring cheap. far from the truth!!

Very reliable but no more than I'd expect from a modern car. the tyre valve dust caps can sieze due to moisture which can lead to a tow in to a dealer as it shears off when you try to force it. no spare wheel! the front brake discs have juddered from nealy new and the dealer skimmed them under warranty which cured the defect for abot 5000 miles. currently I'm just living with the problem as theres no specific safety issue. The oil is mega expensive but I don't often top it up between services. the 18" alloys are prone to pot hole damage and I've done three in so far. fortunately quickfit can balance them up.

Everything works as described, this is the second mazda 6 sport I have purchased from new in 3 years. I had no problems with the first car in two years covering 40000 miles and it was for this reason why I purchased the present one. The first model, mazda 6 being heavy on tyres but I did travel over the pennines to work ( woodhead pass ). the goodyear tyres being on the soft side for grip hence they wore out quicker.

No breakdowns or work required in 2 years owned, only minor quible is that occasionally the mpg indicated drops suddenly (from say 45mpg to 25) for a period then corrects itself - intermittant and no fault found by dealer.
