Check Engine Light On problem #5
The vehicle was a 2003 Mazda Mazda6. I drive a 2003 Mazda 6s, which I purchased from bigger's Mazda in elgin, IL. This vehicle was purchased new from them. My area of concern involves the check engine light on my vehicle, and the performance of the vehicle when this light is on. On April 2, 2004 my check engine light appeared for the third time. When I operate my vehicle with the light on it performs erratically and unusual. The last time the light came on, I was pulling out into traffic, and my vehicle bogged down. In turn, the driver behind almost rear-ended me. While driving my vehicle yesterday, I went to pass a car on the expressway, and again my car bogged down. Every time that I take my car to the dealer, I provide them with the same complaint. I have paperwork to show that I have taken it in three times. After a recent visit to my dealer, they stated, "we have no fix for the check engine light. The light will always come back on. If you are lucky, our Mazda engineers will have a remedy by August 2004 (today is 4/6/04). The check engine light is caused by a misfire in the fourth cylinder". What an awful response from the dealer. I am concerned about the safety of my car. I am also concerned about the other drivers around my car. After three visits to my dealer, I feel lost and helpless. Please advise. This check engine light on issue occurred 04/02/2004.

Check Engine Light On problem #8
The vehicle is a 2003 Mazda Mazda6. The VIN of the problem Mazda6 is 1YVFP80D33_. After 4 previous repairs I started my car and my check engine light once again began to flash, this time flashing rapidly. I called the dealer who told me not to drive the car because the rapid flash means the car is unsafe. I was told I had a bad coil. After a $400 repair, I proceeded to drive the car home only to have the same light flash. The dealer then told me my cataliytic converters split. Now I have a $4,600 repair job on a 2003. Please check to see if there are any other complaints on this vehicle. I have had nothing but problems with this car for the past year. Thank you. The failure date was Jan. 16, 2007.
