The Manual, Turbo (Diesel), AWD, Mazda 6 Already Exists The Manual, Turbo (Diesel), AWD, Mazda 6 Already Exists

In case my post is overlooked in the recent Mazda 6 article, I figure I come here to inform as well. Also, the Mazda 3 is offered in AWD as well.

In Japan, you can get a brown manual diesel Mazda Atenza wagon with the rear wheels driven (in addition to the front wheels, but still) for about 3.4 million yen out the door, apparently.

Looks like the 2.5 Turbo from the CX-9 is going to find a new home under the hood of the 2018 6.

Brought the 6 home two years ago today. Brought the 6 home two years ago today.

6 miles on October 10, 2015 to 20,900 miles on October 10, 2017. The only changes are a few rock chips and scratches here and there, tinted windows, and a car seat and sunshade for my son. #dadcar yo

Gave the 6 half a bath tonight. Gave the 6 half a bath tonight.

Did a quick interior detail. The dirt and grass and crud all over the mats and carpet and the dusty dashboard had become too much for me. Way, way too much. The outside is still filthy - covered in bugs and gravel dust from my trip to my friend’s family farm in the middle of nowhere. But at least the interior is clean…

I see this TSX wagon on my commute pretty much every morning. Finally had a chance to snag a picture this morning and lo and behold it had a friend.

I thought I needed to take pictures for the insurance on my Mazda 6 MPS. Turns out they were not needed for the type of insurance I wanted (as basic as humanly and legally possible).

Finally cleaned the 6 today. Finally cleaned the 6 today.

It was LONG overdue.

I bought a thing! I bought a thing!

Here it is!

WeatherTech Visors Installed WeatherTech Visors Installed

Pretty happy with these - they’re way better than the AVS ones I tried. These installed pretty easily and don’t impede the auto-up/auto-down feature of the windows.

Sigh. It's gotten worse. Sigh. It's gotten worse.

This trim is literally about to fall off the car. It’s barely hanging on. I don’t know what or who broke it.

My car is the epitome of one-off problems. Paging current and former Mazda techs. My car is the epitome of one-off problems. Paging current and former Mazda techs.

First, there was the upholstery of my driver’s seat peeling. Zero other Mazda6s, to my knowledge, have reported that issue. It was fixed under warranty, but I digress.

Today was a good day Today was a good day

A few days ago I wrote about a broken car I bought from a colleague. I gave her what the dealer would have given her for her Golf Plus. We agreed that I would come to collect it today. And since my sisters boyfriend has been looking for a Mazda 6 for some weeks now, I checked if there was something interesting where…

Had my appointment at the dealer today. Had my appointment at the dealer today.

Of course, the waterlogged backup light has dried and has yet to return to its condensation-filled state, so there’s nothing they can do about it. I even purposely went through a car wash (touchless, of course) beforehand and nothing. Drove it in the rain the other day, too. No moisture buildup whatsoever. It’s like…

Continued taillight problems. Continued taillight problems.

It rained all day yesterday, pretty much, so I made sure to drive my car and leave it outside all day so the taillight moisture would come back. It had already dried up.

Well, my 6 needs some warranty work. Well, my 6 needs some warranty work.

Discovered this today, the first non-rainy day since Thursday.

Frustrations. Frustrations.

My friend and I installed the visors slightly wrong. I returned them and ordered another set after I realized that. I figured they wouldn’t stick well since I’d taken them off once. But I test fitted the new set today, in the correct position, and they slightly push on the rubber seal next to the black b-pillar trim.…
