We have experienced a number of problems with our car since it's purchase in 2017: constant tyre pressure fault showing on console despite tyres being at the correct pressure, failed hand brake (which resulted in the car rolling backwards a number of times, once hitting a pole and once narrowly missing my daughter), turbo failure (we understand the gate valve which snapped has since been made more robust in newer models?) and now our own mechanic has told us that the main bearing on the crank shaft has gone but that he couldn't be 100% certain without taking the car apart. We have had the car towed to a Mazda garage in Dublin so that it can be fixed there as we were told that we may have received some compensation towards the turbo if we had got it fixed in a Mazda garage. At the time we got the turbos fixed we didn't know what was wrong with the car and by the time we did our own garage had put a good few hours labour into it so we left it with them. Long story short Mazda garage in Dublin has called to say the car needs a new engine. Without spending more money investigating they cant tell us the cause of the issue. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced these problems with a 142 Mazda 6?
The car is driven approx. 5 miles most days and taken on longer journeys each week to ensure the DPF filter is kept clear. It has approx. 125,000 km on it. Also does anyone know roughly what a new engine will cost??? Thanks in advance!
