The NHTSA has issued a recall for certain 2004 Mazda6 models. According to the website, it only affects 190 vehicles, so chances are you aren't affected. It has to do with the locking mechanism on the rear seat belts. If you need more information, go to www.nhtsa.dot.gov, click "Recalls Search From Office of Defects Investigation (ODI)" found in the middle of the page. For the NHTSA campaign number, type the following: 04V582000. It will give you the details of the recall, as well as numbers to contact Mazda and the NHTSA.
#17201 of 17829 No Snow Chains?
Jan 30, 2005 (1:13 am)
I've had my 6 for not quite 2 months yet, and I love it. I was surprised to read in the owner's manual for my 6s that I am not supposed to use snow chains due to the low clearance under the car. On the mountain passes here (Oregon and Washington) the state police will require chains if the snow gets too deep. What am I supposed to do, not drive in the snow when that happens? This is the first car I've ever had that had this kind of issue.

You could try some of the low profile chains - they should be fine. I would also call to see if 4 snow tires will work - some places don't make you have chains if your have 4 snow tires. They must have the mountain and snowflake symbol though.
#17204 of 17829 AC compressor on when AC not in use?
Feb 20, 2005 (9:12 pm)
I've had my 6 for 3 weeks now and am generally very happy with it. One quirk though is that there has been puddles under the car on the 4 or 5 days we've had with temps in the 50's or 60's.
I am not using the ACC (instantly decided it had a mind of its own, which usually didn't match my wants), do not have the AC button pushed, nor am I using defrost. I'm only set on floor vents. Yet, there is the condensation! Today it was as impressive of a puddle as I've seen, so the compressor must working pretty hard.
Is this normal? Anyone have an idea of what's happening? I echo the concern: How much MPG are we losing?
