I bought a new 2009 Mazda 6 with 45 miles on it. I have been a shade tree mechanic since I was 14 years old, I am now 58. I have done all my own maintenance on it the Mazda 6. I paided off the car in October of 2017. In December of 2017 seven days before Christmas a guy ran a red light and totaled both cars. My Mazda 6 had 550.000 miles on it and was still running like new. The only thing I had to replace was the transmission which went out at 350.000 and the front suspension, and a couple of batteries along the way. That engine was still good as new and did not smoke a puff, even with the petal to the metal..lol. I love that car so much I bought a 2017 Mazda 6, that now has 202.000 miles on it.

Welcome to the forum!!

Sorry to hear about the total in 2017 but hopefully everyone was okay.

Glad you're enjoying the 2017 though! I have had my 2014 for over 9 years and 185k miles now and still love every second in it.
