Default Common 6i problems

I want to get a m6i and would like to know what are the most common problems associated with the m6i.
I have a 2003 m6s and i want to sell it and get the 6i cause i just had enough with the v6.

thanks for your input.

Well there is that awesome gas mileage you get, but most don't consider that a problem....

well i did have that problem with... oh wait wrong car.
the only thing i had to argue with was oil filter design (works fine but im impatient) so i got new oil filter sending unit from 2010 m6 for 45$ from dealership with gasket, now im screw on canister instead of cartridge. other than that pretty well bullet proof.

No problems here either. Got 43,000 on her and besides oil changes have only needed two tires so far, with two more to come in the near future.

Default No AM/FM radio signals

I received delivery of my 2010 Mazda 6i GT on July 9 and it was presented to me with a broken radio. It received NO singals either on AM or FM and the ironic part is that I purchased the Bose 10 speaker system!

It has been to the service dept. three times and they still have not corrected the problem. First they resecured all the antenna connections, next they inserted a signal boster, and now they seem stumped and are awaiting word from a Mazda engineer as to how to proceed.

I have a loaner for the last six days since my new Mazda is still at the service dept.

Other than the radio issue, the car is fine, but I wonder about quality control.
