Have you ever driven a tight suspension car with low profile tires? from the description of your problem, I will say NO.
I have the 2003 Mazda6 with 18" wheels and 235/40/18 tires and the ride is amazing over 66000 miles. Feels as good as the day I bought it.
I will say what you are feeling is road irregularities which will be easily transmitted to you (feedback) because of the low profile / high perf tires.
#2374 of 2861 2006 Mazda6 check engine light, key fobs not working
Oct 22, 2007 (6:51 am)
I bought a 2006 Mazda6 in March of this year...great car, absolutely love it. In August, the check engine light came on, and a few days later both key fobs stopped working. Service department reprogrammed the key fobs (said they "just stopped communicating with the car") and tightened my gas cap. They told me the check engine light came on because I had not turned the cap the required 3 times (oh, but I did) and to be sure I do from then on or the light would come on again. Two weeks ago, check engine light came on again, car idles way down at stop lights as if it will cut off, after pumping gas I have to crank the engine and keep my foot on the gas in order to start the car, and this weekend the key fobs stoppped working again. The car goes in for service again on Wednesday, but I'd love to know if anyone else is having similar issues? I LOVE my car, but this is a little ridiculous.

Front tires are starting to cup. Zero issues other than the tires.

I have a 2004 Mazda6 with 50000 miles and had very simliar issues when starting it up for the last couple of months. I would have to pump the gas in order to keep the car from idling way down or even dying. I've taken it into the dealership (before 50000) and they claimed to fix it. Low and behold I went to start it up yesterday and it did the same thing. Then that afternoon it wouldn't start at all. Don't know if the two problems are related, but now it just cranks and cranks. We just replaced the battery a week ago because it was dead (1st replacement since purchase). We have towed it to the dealership and are waiting on a response. Hopefully this will go under my warranty since the didn't fix it the first time!

Just 2K miles on car. I filled up yesterday and clicked the gas cap once. That might be it. But no other problems so far. I have read in other mazda forums that the check engine light will go away after a few days if it's really just the fuel cap and it has been tightened.

#2380 of 2861 Check engine light is now dark
Nov 01, 2007 (1:50 pm)
Two days after I re-tightened the gas cap. This is just as predicted by several posters at Mazda forum. I guess it takes time for the computer to re-set IF it is just a gas cap issue. But if there are other electrical symptoms, it seems like one should proceed to the dealer without delay.
#2381 of 2861 Cold Engine starting is a problem for me.... Please help!
Nov 06, 2007 (11:14 am)
I have a '03 Mazda6 and over the past week I have been having some problems when my car's engine is cold. In the mornings or if the car has been setting for a few hours the car is extremly hard to start. After serveral attempts the engine gets warm enough to start but it idles roughly. Once the temp needle gets in temp reading range the rough idling starts getting smoother and stablizes once the temp gets to about the normal range. Since the outside temp has been cold lately I have been using the heater which also effects the situation. Using the heater drives the engine temp down causing the to stall. Is there a sensor that regulates this? Oh and the engine light is on.
I am hoping that someone has the solution to this because if I can repair this myself that would be great...... car repair is exspensive especially at the dealer.
Thank you......... in advance!

Many auto parts stores, such as autozone, will read the check engine codes for you for free. So you might start by doing that and seeing if you can find out why that is on.
