Model News

The Mazda6 is redesigned for 2009. The new sedan wears attractive, aggressive sheet metal with pronounced, crisply cornered front fenders. The car is seven inches longer overall and rides on a wheelbase that is four inches longer than the previous Mazda6. Gone from the line-up is the 5-door hatchback.

Two new power plants motivate the Mazda6: The base 2.5L 4-cylinder delivers 170 hp and replaces the 156-hp 2.3L unit, while a 272-hp 3.7L V6 takes over for the old 212-hp 3.0L V6. The 4-cylinder returns an estimated 21 mpg city/30 miles per gallon highway, while the V6 achieves an estimated 17 city/25 hwy mpg.

Standard comfort and safety amenities abound, and four trim levels allow for a driving experience from sedate but sophisticated to zoom-zoom.

Prices range from $18,500 to $28,260.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Mazda6 improves upon the modern inexpensive sport sedan. With the excellent outgoing model as its foundation, the new car goes up against the Nissan Altima, Chevy Malibu, and the upmarket TSX from Acura.


Model Highlights

The 2009 Mazda6 is a stylish, capable small sports sedan priced attractively. With great power from two rev-happy engines, and sporty independent suspension all around, the new Mazda6 offers a driving dynamic not offered by many cars in its class.

Four trim levels are offered: SV, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. Two new engines power the entire range, and each is available within the four levels. A 2.5L 4-cylinder delivers 170 hp and can be mated to either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic with manual shift capability. Models powered by the 4-cylinder engine get the "i" designation. Those bearing an "s" designation get their power from a 3.7L, 272-hp V6, which is a significant 60-hp boost from the 3.0L it replaces. This engine comes from Mazda's popular Mazda CX-9 crossover. A 6-speed automatic with manual mode is the only transmission available.

The SV trim offers only the 4-cylinder and comfort and convenience features include tilt/telescopic steering with stereo controls, air conditioning with cabin filtration, power windows, locks, and mirrors, a split-folding rear seat, AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, 17-inch alloy wheels and a theft-deterrent system.

Sport trim adds the optional V6, as well as cruise control, a digital media interface, and keyless entry. Stepping up to Touring adds an 8-way power driver seat, keyless entry and starting, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 18-inch alloys and fog lights. Finally, in Grand Touring trim, the Mazda6 gets leather seating with heated front seats and power on the passenger side, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth handsfree phone link, heated mirrors, automatic Xenon headlights, automatic windshield washers, a universal garage door opener and a blind spot indicator.

Popular options abound on the Mazda6, though they are reserved only for Touring and Grand Touring models. On these, the Moonroof & Bose Package adds premium 10-speaker surround sound, a 6-disc CD changer, SIRIUS satellite radio and one-touch open moonroof. On Touring trim, the Convenience Package includes dual zone climate control, Bluetooth, blind spot monitoring, upgraded interior and more. A navigation system is available as well.

All Mazda6 sedans come loaded with standard safety features like electronic stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, dual front, front side, and curtain side airbags, active head restraints, and a tire pressure monitor.

Summary
MAZDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2010 MAZDA6 VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM APRIL 8, 2008, THROUGH FEBRUARY 8, 2010. A CERTAIN TYPE OF SPIDER MAY WEAVE A WEB IN THE EVAPORATIVE CANISTER VENT LINE AND THIS MAY CAUSE A RESTRICTION IN THE LINE. IF THIS OCCURS, THE FUEL TANK PRESSURE MAY BECOME EXCESSIVELY NEGATIVE WHEN THE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WORKS TO PURGE THE VAPORS FROM THE CANISTER.

Consequence
AS THE CANISTER IS PURGED REPEATEDLY DURING NORMAL OPERATION, THE STRESS ON THE FUEL TANK MAY EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A CRACK, POTENTIALLY LEADING TO FUEL LEAKAGE AD AN INCREASED RISK OF FIRE.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND CLEAN UP THE CANISTER VENT LIN, AND INSTALL A SPRING TO PREVENT THIS TYPE OF SPIDER FROM ENTERING THE VENT LINE. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 25, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MAZDA CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER AT 1-800-222-5500.

MAZDA SAFETY RECALL NO. 6211B. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured February 4, 2008, to December 3, 2009. The protective coating may not have been properly applied to the air bag control unit (ACU) and, as a result, moisture may damage the unit causing it to malfunction.

Consequence
Failure of the ACU would illuminate the air bag warning light and prevent the air bags from deploying in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury

Mazda dealers will replace the ACU, free of charge, however parts are not currently available. The recall has begun but parts are not yet available. Mazda will mail a second notice when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 9816H.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
