I enjoyed logging 3,ooo miles since purchasing it and can honestly say it runs perfect! Everything electronic works and doesn't leak a drop of anything. I even have most of the service records from the original owner as well as the original window sticker and owners manual binder as well as my own personal receipts that go with the sale.

When I purchased the van it had a check engine light for a misfire code. Apparently, two of the six coil packs that fire the spark plugs were not doing their job and as a result, damaged two of the four catalytic converters which triggered the check engine code and prevented it from passing emissions inspection.
In addition to correcting the fore mentioned issues, I wanted to be able to completely trust the van for my own family so I went over the entire vehicle myself. I replaced everything that wasn't up to snuff with new TOP OF THE LINE parts from ROCKAUTO and the help of my local mechanic.

Here's the laundry list of parts that were either about to fail or failing that I replaced and have the receipts to prove it!

All work was done within the last 3k miles...
  • new battery $100
  • oil pan gasket $50
  • both front axles $130
  • K&N air filter $50
  • new Mazda gas cap $30
  • Bosch ICON wiper blades $50
  • K&N oil filter w synthetic oil $70
  • transmission fluid flush and fill $75
  • mass airflow sensor $100
  • all weather floor mats $210
  • water pump, belt & tensioner $120
  • coolant flush and fill $50
  • 6 platinum spark plugs $30
  • 6 new coil packs $350
  • new upper plenum gaskets $40
  • 4 new cooper tires w alignment $750
  • Raybestos front rotors and pads $150
  • exhaust manifold catalysts & secondary catalysts w flex pipe, gaskets and all four oxygen sensors $1,700
  • Viper long range remote start system w lock/unlock $300

The van runs and drives perfect with no issues at all and urge anyone who is looking for a low cost, very reliable and family friendly people mover to come by and see/drive this one for yourself. Cold A/C and hot heat with remote start for getting it warmed up and toasty for those cold mornings coming soon.

The van had an aftermarket VCR installed on the floor between the front seats that powered the monitor in the ceiling but was broken so I removed the VCR but left the monitor for the next owner to get going again with a more modern DVD player.

NO disappointments with this one!

2014 Mazda6 i Sport

Fri, 01 Feb 2013 11:57:00 EST

In an automotive landscape dominated by platform sharing, technology exchange and any number of other cross-fertilization/cost-saving/amortization exercises, it's actually pretty rare that we get to drive a new car that is as "all-new" as this, the 2014 Mazda6. With brand-spanking new Skyactiv architecture throughout - engine, transmission, body and chassis all included - this 6 represents a new era of flexible production and cutting edge running gear for the happily lithe car company.
Our own Jonathon Ramsey did a cracking job of running the Mazda6 through its First Drive paces a few months ago, and sufficiently impressed upon us just how good looking a car this is for the midsize sedan segment. Suffice it to say, now, then, that this is easily the most interesting (and quite possibly the most beautiful) midsize sedan in the segment today. However, as Mr. Ramsey reviewed a fully contented example of the 6 - one equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission - we took advantage of Mazda's North American launch event of the car to suss out the base Mazda6 i Sport, complete with its six-speed Skyactiv manual gearbox. This may not shock you, but the stripper's pretty good, too.

2013 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year finalists announced [w/poll]

Wed, 12 Dec 2012 13:30:00 EST

2012 is almost in the books and automakers are spending December gearing up for the 2013 auto show season, which tips off next month at the Detroit Auto Show. Traditionally, the latter opens up with the announcement of the North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards, and this year figures to be no different.
But up until this moment, we didn't know which six vehicles would be parked ahead of the stage as finalists, with executives and engineers waiting for the winners to be disclosed. Whittled down from October's "short list" of nominees (11 cars and 10 truck/utility vehicles), the finalists are as follows:

Mazda rolls out unlimited mileage warranty in Canada

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 11:30:00 EST

Cold weather might be starting to grip parts of Canada, but our neighbors to the north are going to be able to drive their 2015 Mazda cars and utilities from Vancouver to Montreal with a little more peace of mind. That's because Mazda Canada is instituting an unlimited mileage warranty for its new models.
The updated plan starts with all 2015 model year vehicles (even those already sold), and the scheme simply removes that distance limit on everything but the emissions defect coverage. That means that the Mazdas have one year of service adjustments, three years of new vehicle coverage, five years on the powertrain, seven years against corrosion and three years of roadside assistance for as many kilometers as the owner drives.
The change removes at least one, tiny piece of anxiety about buying a new vehicle because it's easy to know when the coverage ends. "By offering our customers an Unlimited Mileage Warranty, we believe it will enhance their ownership experience by alleviating concerns such as kilometre limitations, repair costs and resale value," Kory Koreeda, president of Mazda Canada, in the automaker's announcement.
