I am told the new CX8 has the same skyactive diesel as the Mazda 6. Is that true? I am told the Mazda 6 has a lot of oil problems? Has this been fixed. Need to know before I make my purchase. Thanks in advance.
Are you speaking of the CX9 perhaps? The Mazda 6 is supposedly getting the diesel, but so far the only car in the US equipped with it is the CX9. No news yet on if and when the 6 will officially get the diesel.
The US Gov't is a joke.....they're clueless A holes looking to make a quick buck.
Combining a TDI motor with a plugin electric battery system would be the best of everything.
While I'm excited about the new Skyactive 3 design and it's prospects I feel like Mazda is totally missing the boat on adding plug in Hybrid to their mix.
I'd been looking at maybe the new CX5 or V60 as a replacement for my 2015 6 but after driving the Kia Niro plugin Hybrid....I'm sold. I'll probably pull the trigger at teh end of the year so I can get my tax credit money back ASAP.
Mazda says the current engines don't "fit" with AWD in the Mazda3 and Mazda6 but that option is being considered for the next generations of each model.
