Hi folks,

New member but looking to buy my first new car (driving old Citroen c1 since I got my licence) and started coming across some really nice Mazda 6's that are way more affordable than anything similar and it looks to be a sweet and reliable option.

Is there anything I should be looking out for or checking with seller in particular, mechanics, known issues, particular part replacements etc.

Being sold through a dealer so should hopefully have solid service history going to see soon.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have no issues so far but my car is relatively new and is about 60,000 km. I've read that the usual problem is the DPF.

I suggest that you have someone who has a code reader (scanner) to check the car.

This is of course, aside from the usual checking when buying a used car like steering feel, A/C, etc. Surely you already know since this is not your first car.

A common problem of that 2.2d engine is soot accumulated into the intake due to EGR.
Sometimes it may produce even turbo damages.
