    Default Mazda 6 MPS

    Hi all im newww to the forum don't currently own a MPS but hopefully will soon as i have just enquire about one.

    Just wondering what i should be looking out for eg. known problems, faults etc.

    The one im looking at is an 06 Model silver, Leather Pack, with 60,000ks on the clock.

    Sorry if it has been covered but searching is currently taking so long for me as i've already reached the limit on my internet lol.

    andd this will be my first carr so really want it to last ages and will be in uni for the next 6 years so wont be able to buy a new car.

    ahh yes im nt even a P plater yet but HONESTLY im against hooning and see it being very stupid especially with the new laws thus not worth it, yes yes the MPS is a sports car but really im against hooning, and im definitely not over confident in my skills in driving after all im a begginer=) so please dnt flame=)

    thanks in advanceeeeee=)=)

    Matto and hope you get your MPS6 soon

    Not many problems overall, some more than others, but look for the obvious signs of abuse and make sure the maintenance has been kept up to date as per the service schedule and you should be ok, some threads to look over here.

    Also moved this to the new members area and lastly keep an eye on the club cruises section, we have regular meets/cruises in WA, look forward to seeing you and your (soon to be) MPS soon!

    Default Under 25K

    Non leather pack though, but fair asking price and low mileage.

    Hey dude, Another guy eyeing off my Lipstick red hey? I swear unless u man it up a little that colour has defult "womans" car status. Good luck dude, be patient and look at whats on offer in other states, you may get what your looking for cheaper if your willing to have it brought to you on a trailer. Me and Sean flew to cairns to pick his up and we drove it back. 13,000 k's for $28k With 1 year warranty remaining. Well worth it.

    Id like to have herd its not your first car, its not always the case but more than likely your going to smush it some how.

    But Good luck and i hope you find what your looking for!

    Oh pov pack, i wish you could have the SP23 Bucket seats, i hate my mps 6 seats. Its great if you have a larger body cause you actually fit. But if there is not m uch to you its like your sitting on a park bench, no HUG what so ever.

    Wow that's a heck of a good deal, yes a dealer over here has 1 for 28k for 44000kms
    and refuses to let it go for anything less and it's got 44000ks:/ well I've actually been looking at multiple cars since last October so getting a little impatient but having a loook at a grey 1 pov pak
    with 44000ks to hopefully get away with 23k
    these cars really sound like the best bfyb cars around that price.

    Lol well that's true p platers are always more likely
    to crash, for many reasons. The main one I think would be to show off and are way to confident
    about there skills and I assure you im not over
    confident in my driving, also I plan to take an advanced driving course

    Haha um well nt exactly big, but suppose the gym would has filled out my lats a bit so hopefully should be okay although I have to say white is my fav colour on the mps

    Park Ford has a red MPS6 for around $26k I think with about 44000 k on it. Looks stock but don't know what the service history is.

    I think it does pay to haggle a bit. Don't make out you REALLY want the car and stick to your guns. I bought a 6MPS leather pack in Adelaide last June for $24.5 with 60K on it and drove it back to Perth. It was advertised for $27.
