Editor's Overview

The 2015 Mazda Mazda6 sedan is a sleek piece of work whose exterior appearance and interior flare seem in complete contradiction to its $22K starting price and class-leading 40-mpg highway fuel economy. This 4-cylinder family sedan will surprise with both its performance and its content, leading us to proclaim it one of the best sedans for 2014.

It doesn't have an option for a larger engine, only comes in a 4 cylinder

I love the styling of the vehicle, particularly the exterior styling, and I like the gas mileage. I don't like that it only comes in a 4 cylinder engine, I prefer at least a V6, as it sounds a little wimpy most times though it is fun to drive. I also hate the built-in navigation system, it is not user friendly...I never use it and always use my GPS apps on my phone and hook it up via Bluetooth. I do like the various tech features like the back up camera, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning system, etc.

Mazda's are very reliable cars. I have owned three Mazda's and wouldn't purchase any other make of car. The first Mazda was a turbo charged five speed and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The next two were automatics and they have been a pleasure to drive. The driver's seat is extremely comfortable and fits my body perfectly. The headrest in other makes of cars is usually not comfortable for me but Mazda's are positioned perfectly.

Mid size sedan that is very comfortable. Very reliable with great mileage and minimal issues. Does not take damage well and is prone to electrical issues. Sensors have begun failing after 3 years of ownership, however price is right for the quality of the car. Plenty of safety features, recommend getting something other than factory tires. Windshield cracked shortly after purchase.

Safety Recalls (4)

Seats Aug 30, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 30, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V546000
Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain 2015-2016 Mazda6 vehicles. Debris from the welding process during manufacturing of the front passenger seat frame may damage the occupant classification system (OCS) wiring.
Consequence:
If the wiring becomes damaged, there may be a loss of power steering assist and the deactivation of the passenger air bag, increasing the risk of a crash and the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will attach a protective pad on the seat frame. If the OCS harness is damaged, insulating tape will be applied to the harness. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 29, 2017. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 1517H.

Parking Brake Jun 21, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 21, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V393000
Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain 2014-2015 Mazda6 and 2014-2016 Mazda3 vehicles. Water could possibly enter the brake caliper causing the parking brake actuator shaft to corrode and possibly bind.
Consequence:
If the parking brake actuator shaft binds, the parking brake may not engage or disengage fully. If the parking brake does not engage properly, the vehicle may move unexpectedly if it is parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will check the parking brake actuator shafts, replacing any that are corroded, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed August 24, 2017. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 1217F.

Tires > Pressure Monitoring And Regulating Systems Oct 26, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 26, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V675000
Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured October 25, 2012, to October 10, 2014. If the pressures of four of the tires on an affected vehicle gradually drop at the same time, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not warn the driver of the drop in pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring System."
Consequence:
A vehicle that is driven with under inflated tires may experience a sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge. The recall began on December 10, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.

Electrical System > Alternator/generator/regulator Apr 2, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 2, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V173000
Summary:
Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mazda3 vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through December 18, 2013, and model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured May 20, 2013, through December 4, 2013, and both equipped with a 2.5L engine and a regenerative engine braking system. When driving the affected vehicles in heavy rain or in deep puddles, the alternator belt may slip causing the Power Control module (PCM) to incorrectly assume failure of the charging system.
Consequence:
Once the PCM assumes that the charging system has failed, the vehicle will stop charging and could result in poor acceleration, loss of steering assist and windshield wiper operation, and a possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM with updated software, free of charge. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7314D.
