#712 of 770 Some more info on new Mazda6
Sep 15, 2007 (7:25 pm)
Found a some more info on the new Euro-spec Mazda6 that I thought might interest some. Nothing earth-shattering, but every bit counts! This is from Mazda's UK site:
"An advanced six-speed manual transmission engages the new range of engines, which includes a class-leading 2.5-litre petrol engine (170 PS) and an updated diesel (140 PS). Steering and handling enhancements give a greater sense of smoothness, precision and confidence.
Environmental and safety performance has also been enhanced. Safety features include a new brake system w/ larger disc brakes; ABS, DSC, electronic traction control, brake assist, front active headrest and six airbags for all vehicles in the UK.
Distinctive exterior design is complemented by a more spacious interior with pleasing and intuitive functionality – like the ‘welcome-mode’ lighting that gives the sense of the car coming to life. Impressive new technology includes the CF-Net steering wheel control switches, an eight-speaker, BOSE® Premium Sound System and a Bluetooth® hands-free mobile phone interface (Dependent on grade).
Launching December 2007, the new Mazda6 will make daily driving a delight in every way."
Here are a couple of pics of hatch and wagon that are a little different than the others I've seen previously. Mazda, please bring both of these over to the USA!

Not sure why my pics didn't make it thru, since they showed in the preview. I'll try it here with the url links to them instead. Maybe that will work. Bear with me.....
#714 of 770 There is a new topic for the 2009 Mazda6
Sep 15, 2007 (7:53 pm)
Discussion of the new Mazda6 has been taking place at the 2008 Mazda6 topic.
Probably a better place to post the pictures.
The new Mazda6 can not arrive soon enough.

during a move to storage. The mattress fits too, but the hatch could not close all the way. I made two trips instead of tying the hatch down. I am soooo please with the hauling ability of my grand touring 5 door

I hope we get a hatchback with the 2.5L with the 6-speed manual for 2009.
#717 of 770 Timing Question
Feb 18, 2008 (5:41 pm)
I've pretty much decided on the Mazda6 Hatchback. Normally, I would wait until the Fall 2008 when dealers really want to unload this car before the new, remodelled 2009 arrives. My concern is that there won't be many hatches by that time. I have no idea how many hatches are made. Can anyone enlighten me?
Also, I'm curious why the upscale Mazda6s use a relatively anemic 6 cylinder engine as oppose to the turbo-charged 4 cylinder used in the CX-7 which is much more powerful

Feb 20, 2008 (5:43 pm)
Hi everyone. I'm a newbie here, so please excuse any indiscretions. I just traded my '98 Passat 1.8t for a Mazda6s hatch. I had E-code lamps in the 'dub and kind of miss them. I know the left side headlamp unit is out of line on my 6, but the question I have is about the relative alignment of the different parts of each lamp. Basically, I want to raise the aim of the fog lamps and the high beams or lower the low beams. I searched for "AIM LIGHTS" here with no luck -- only 5 posts returned and none about headlights. Wrong keyword, maybe?
I believe I've located the screws to adjust the entire lamp -- a notched thumbwheel near the fender and a hex head screw in the crossmember near the radiator. I know changing bulbs can be an interesting exercise from lurking around other forums. Can I aim the projector beams within their housing? If it isn't designed for that, is it worth buying one at a junkyard to see if there is any hope of doing so when the unit is out of the car?

Have you looked at the engine in the Mazdaspeed6?
The hatch is the least common body style, but I don't have numbers for you. I looked a long time to find my used 05 at a dealer 60 miles from home. They are also the most expensive.
On an industrial scale, hatchbacks are not big sellers in the U.S. market for some reason. Most of them out there are compacts or smaller, with the Saab, the Malibu Maxx, and Mazda6 being exceptions to that if you don't try to count SUVs and such.

It might, but the pics don't look like the lights on the 6. It's good to know about the screws loosening. I presume there is some kind of set screw?? The pictures seem to show a locking nut or something. I never encountered that before.
Do you know the model these pics are for? My lights are all round.
