Wanna tell more about what kind of winter tyres you got?Now I drive with 205/55 R16 winter tyres instead of original 215/45 R17 summer[/b]
I have a Mazda6 on order in the UK, expecting to take delivery in January. I'm obviously concerned to be reading about potential suspension problems on this site, and as yet nobody here has been able to confirm the true cause, or the success or otherwise of any dealer-proposed solutions.Originally posted by javah
...there has been lots talks in this forum about some problems with suspension (some clanking noise?). Was that only with the Asian / Australian models made earlier this year, or has anyone got the sound in very latest production patches?
Infact I have inside information on that from Finnish car dealer... They were test driving Mazda6 in Estonia half a year ago with other scandinavian and baltic sales, just before they started the sales here.
The result was that they were able to make the 2.3 GT models suspension have that clanking noise, and they revved and tested the car in all kinds of roads (as horribel they could find)... And the noise got worse...[/b]
Interesting to hear how it works on ICE. Since in the Finnish magazine (tests cars and tyres as well - called 'Tekniikan Maailma') just 1 month ago this tyre got to be last in the winter tests.Goodyear Ultra Grip 6[/b]
Yes, maybe we should get back to the point of this topic? Any problems with suspension? Sounds that shouldn't be there? The talk in this forum has made some people around here a bit 'nervous'.Does anybody yet have any further info on this apparently significant ignificant blot on Mazda's quality record?[/b]
Last few winters in Latvia were kind of warm. There were some real cold weeksOriginally posted by javah
Personally I desided to get either Nokia or the Bridgestone, since they seem to be only studdless tyres you can 'trust' on 'smooth ice'... But with studdless always keep in mind, it can't have as good grip on 'smooth ice' as the one with studds, that's the only minor minus for these tyres.[/b]
You probably made the rigth choice for your country...Last few winters in Latvia were kind of warm. There were some real cold weeks..[/b]
