Sorry to hear about the CEL on you 6s. If you read the posts on this board there have been some posts about a vac line that comes loose from the throttle area that can cause a CEL. This problem was in the first batches of the V6's. This has suposably been rectified in future production and Mazda has a kit to fix the problem and stop any reocurrance. Also, not to be a D#*!, but the Mazda 6 is not a Ford product. Just because the V6 was derived from a Ford engine and Ford owns a controlling interest in Mazda's stock and owns 50% of the AAI plant, doesnt mean its a Ford product.....its a Mazda product. Good luck with the CEL problem, keep the faith, the 6 is a great car, just that sometimes these things happen in first year production vehicles. Happens in Honda's and Toyo's too....

Yes, but seeing as Toyota and Honda assemble there cars here just like Mazda is doing with American workers, I really don't see that there is a difference here other than the fact that Ford owns a controlling financial interest in Mazda and therefore, when Mazda was failing and Ford was buying into them more and more, they begun using and eventually purchased half of the AAI plant. Every car company out there has the same "bottom" line versus "quality" debate. I have owned 2 cars produced at the AAI plant and would put the quality up against any other car maker/US assembler, period.
