    since the Mazda6 under goes numerous quality check point through out the production process, I highly doubt there is a quality problem, but rather an isolated incident. Remember, you have a metallic paint. It will shimmer in the sunlight.
  • What colors do you think this car looks best in? What colors don't work as well?
  • Colors that work well:
    Brilliant Silver, Kona Blue, Sangria Red (on V6 models) and Dark Cherry.

    Colors that don't work well:
    Comet Gray, Smokestone and Light Ice Blue...
  • For sure not the light ice blue. How do you spell u g l y?

    It is hard to keep clean but I dig my black 6.

    These are the best colors in my opinion, in order
    1. Blue (2 tone interior is great)
    2. Black (If it comes in 2 tone interior would be even better).
    3. Dark red (I am not sure what it is called)
    4. Red
    5. Grey

    Worst colors
    1. White
    2. Silver

    I went with hankook w409 winter i pike snow tires on 17" maxim wheels couple of weeks ago. Snow handling of these tires is awesome. We had about 6 inches of snow today and my 6 went up my un-plowed steep driveway with ease! Amazing what a difference snow tires can make! These tires also have decent dry handling and pretty quiet on highway driving. Very happy with them so far.
  • Yeah i have a black 6 too. I try to wash it every other week. Especially since I just got some 20" rims put on ;) ;) . I need lowering kit now to make everything look straight ;)
  • what are the specs of the 20" rims that you put on your 6? is it a 2009 6? did you have to do any mods for them to fit? Im looking to get some 20" rims but it seems that it is not recommended!! do you have pics?
  • Black on Black!
  • Hi,
    can you tell me which transmitter you bought for your ipod classic?

    Thanks
  • Congrats! I got the same car with the same options. Black on black!
    I love it!
    I paid 23,791 + TTL.
  • Anyone notice a rattle in the front centre speaker when you drive through little road bumps with models equipped with the Bose system?
  • Yeah I got the 2009 mazda 6. The size of the rims are 20x7.5. You can get 22s but they'll rub(I might get 22s in a year...maybe :P ). If you decide to get rims get either 20x7.5 or 20x8. Honestly I think it handles better with the 20s than the 18s. I'll post pics tonight since I'm at work right now
  • Bah, my grey looks great, and it's a beautiful paint just as the sun is setting and the blue comes out. Plus, it's bit easier to deal with in a dirty winter then black.

    I've seen mostly black and greys on the road, and one white. Nothing else.
  • 09 Mazda 6 with 20" rims (may get 22s next year :P ). I need lowering springs now.

  • According to Automotive news, some 29,000 '09 Mazda6's (which I think would be all of them sold at this point) are being recalled for a possibly fault in the outside door handle. Something about the fit not being quite right, causing the handle to not close all the way with the potential being there for the door to fly open on it's own. There is one case of that, in Canada.
  • Thanks for the heads up. I just checked my car (6i Touring) on MyMazda and did not find any recall notices on it. This recall seems to be model specific.
  • I have just purchased an 09 Mazda 6 Grand Touring and have put 850 miles on it and am loving it. However, the back shelf where the speakers are rattles all the time. The dealer has ordered a new back shelf. Hopefully this will solve the problem. Everything else is tight with no rattles. Any car can develope rattles from many different sources. I hope your dealer can fix all of the rattles.
  • yeah, I dunno about that. It was just announced, they may not have updated mymazda yet. Since they are supposed to send out letters to owners of the affected cars, I'd just wait for that, or use the contact info below. There is only 1 reported case - in Canada - of it happening, so I don't know how many cars is actually affects.
