#1105 of 1367 New Mazda 6 Wagon Owner
Jun 02, 2005 (6:58 am)
I was just looking over the messageboard after buying my Mazda6 Wagon yesterday. I got a 2004 model that they had left over. Sticker price of 24,200. After $4750 in rebates (Incl $500 recent grad, and $1000 for using Mazda credit), I got it if for $16,500. It's new, having only 148 miles on it when I bought it. I've already gotten some grief from friends for owning a wagon (I'm 29 and single), but I really wanted something with the room for bicycles/camping gear, etc, but still get decent gas mileage. I traded in my Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4x4 which was getting 12 MPG in town and 17 on the highway.... I've owned Mazdas in the past (1990 MX-6, 1988 323) and loved them, so hopefully this one will be no different.

The NYC dealer finally looked at my 6 late yesterday eight full days after it entered the shop. The diagnosis is a bad throttle stack. Now the good part.....they have to order the part.......by the time this is said and done Mazda will have had my car for two weeks maybe longer. I had it three days. I suggested to my dealer they pay the pay the first month but he was non-commital on that. I think they should do that and more........
The dealer I purchased he car from told me yesterday that Mazda's policy is a 48 hour repair on a new vehicle.Of course he never volunteered to do anything for a week. I must have 15-20 un-returned phone calls and spent a bunch of time trying to get Mazda itself to help. My dealer yesterday called the Manhattan dealer to have the car towed back to him for repair and they wouldn't release it to them.
I own the car........

That is really really bad!!! Would you care to name dealerships involved? I live in New Jersey too, consider purchasing Mazda and would not want to give my business to people, who treat their customers like that!

If they won't give you your car, then that is theft. Call the cops!

I purchased my 2004 Steel Gray wagon in January 2005, just turned 6k miles. No problems to date, this is our 2nd Mazda, purchased a 2004 5-door in March of 2004. Made a few minor adjustments to the car so far.
Added Eibach lowering springs, ASA AR-1 18x 7.5 wheels, Yokohama AVS ES100 225/45/18 tires, the Webasto 524 Hollandia Panoramic Sunroof and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust system. The horsepower and torque gain is very noticeable, the handling is even better with the new springs and tires!
Looking forward to the upcoming chats!

Ramsey Auto Group, route 17.....Manhattan Mazda, 11th Avenue, nYC.....
Try East Coast in Fort Lee or Route 23 Mazda....I had a good experience with east Coast when I purchased my 626. I was living closer to them at the time, wish I had purchased it there.
I finally got my car back saturday, made a trip to Manhattan on a day off, inconveinenced my wife to take me in to Manhattan.....not one person from the dealership said they were sorry for all the nonsense. They did me a big favor selling me this car the way they act. Bottom line was the car took 12 days to be repaired from the day I left it with the dealer.......

BTW, I should mention that the 6 wagon itself is a great car.The car has very good pickup and handles really well. It's a shame sucha good vehicle is backed by such lousy customer service.

I work for a large rent a car company, we had a lot of Mazda 6 wagons purchased. They rented them for a few months and are now seeling them.

Just a warning to all in the Northeast.....the service dept at Gallo Mazda is one of the worst on the planet. Didnt address ANY of my requests. The windshield is bolted to the frame of the car (2004 M6 Wagon V6), and it was rattling.....rattling because one of the brackets were broken (nice job at the factory!)...spoiler was leaking from the corners of the inside trim. They didnt even put a hose on it! I fixed it myself! I finally brought the car to Morande Mazda in Manchester, CT. They ordered a brand new windshield, replaced the bracket, and were done in one day! I still have reservations about the Mazda quality, but the car is fun to drive! Thanks for hearing me out! -Rob
