Mazda MAZDA6, Wagon
Jan 29, 2005 (6:00 am)
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.

I just picked up my squall blue wagon with gray leather. Gorgeous, and getting lots of attention. Question for you: do your heated seats seem to cycle on and off? On all my previous cars, I'd end up turning the seats down because they were constantly on and got too hot! But these seems to go on and off - am I nuts, or is something wrong?

I got my recall letter about this about a month ago. I feel so special that I was one of the 190 chosen!!...errr...or something.
I haven't had a chance to get to a dealer just yet.
Oh yeah...and mine is a hatch...just realized I'm in the wagon forum.
#984 of 1367 M6 security alarm

The mazda.ca site states that the M6 is available with a "Thatcham category 1 alarm". Is that some sort of high-end alarm system? Has anyone bought one for their M6, and what fancy features does it have?

I also have a squall blue w/gray leather. Now have 10k miles on it. (And loving it.) The heated seats do cycle on and off. Usually they get too hot before they go off, and I have to turn them off myself.

I have the squall blue with gray leather too; a very nice combo. My leather and heater were added aftermarket at the dealers so I don't know if they are the same as factory installed. My heater gets so toasty after a couple of minutes that I turn it off, so I don't know if it cycles or not. It's really been great on these 10 and 12 degree mornings we've been having lately!

is the 3.0L on M6 and MPV, the same dated FORD engine ????
Don't be surprised of the low MPG...

It is normal for the heated seats to cycle on and off. I am glad it does. I turn it off anyhow after awhile since it is too warm for me.
#989 of 1367 side airbags 2004 vs 2005
Feb 22, 2005 (6:23 pm)
I'm thinking of buying a 2004 wagon because of the great incentives, but I'm having a hard time comparing it to the 2005 model when it comes to side airbags. I think the dealer told me no side airbag option on the 05 wagon, and that's what the printed brochure says (sedan only). The Mazda website says side airbags are standard on all the 05 wagons. The 04 had a side airbag option, but it was tied to Bose and Sport packages, which then gets pricey.
So does anyone hear know the difference between 04 and 05 wagons in this regard? Is it really possible they're not available in the 05's?
