Hi Guys,
I am a new member, currently looking to buy a used Mazda6 (2014-2017, preferably with AT).
What should I look for, and what to avoid?
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

Fortunately, these cars have been pretty rock solid for most of us.

Most common things those years have seen are:

- The paint is extremely thin and prone to chips.
- Warping Rotors (Just about all of us had this happen eventually)
- Loud Wind noise on highways (There's a TSB for this)
- Fuel Canister overflow (There's a recall for this)
- Crappy OEM Tires (Dunflops)
- For 2016+ the darker rim color peels pretty horribly.

You failed to display location, so hard to say if rust or ash (to treat icy roads) would be an issue.
#1 History on car. Look for signs of body work. Always look for left or right pull when breaking. (Alignment off)
#2 Mileage.
#3 Modifications. If 2017, has the radio been software upgraded (wish mine was)
#4 Condition.
Most 6's are automatic. A stick is actually harder to find. Options depend on taste and budget. I have a 2017 T, and love the Backup warning system. Miss HUD, but apparently, some would rather not have it.
