I just have to say that for my money,
no better purchase could have been
made. I loved the car when I saw it,
and I enjoy it more every day I drive
On wheel music controls - Select shift -
Clean, unique styling - surprizingly
roomy - nice sport-tight suspension but
still liquid smooth over potholes and
The 5spd automatic pauses a little bit
in transitioning from break to
acceleration at around 10 or 20 mph
since the transmition holds the tallest
gear possible for fuel economy. Also,
let's get with the aftermarket turbo
What a great car! In 21 yrs I've only
owned Nissans (my last a 99 Altima
GXE). I decided to try something new
w/the Mazda 6 (loaded V6 sport package)
after reading so many rave reviews
about it. I travel 35 min each way to
work & actually look forward to getting
in my car & driving. It's a nice-
looking, zippy, nimble car. I only have
3,500 miles, but so far I would
recommend the car for someone who is
looking for a fun, quick vehicle that
is roomy enough for a couple of kids
(my are 10 & 14 & no complaints about
lack of space). I'm hoping I get the
same reliability of my former Nissans.
I'm also very curious to see how it
handles in the snow.
Very tight steering (I dealt with a lot
of torque steer w/my Nissans), Bose
Stereo, Sleek Exterior, Dash Setup,
Stereo Controls on the Steering Column
(very convenient), Sunroof, Zoom-Zoom-
Zoom Quickness & Agility!
Temperature Control (front window seem
to fog a lot), Softer Leather (looks a
little like Vinyl), smoother Gear Shift
(it makes these clicking sounds each
time you shift), option for a smaller
Rear Spoiler when you purchase the
I love it.
It drives nice, silencios yet powerfull,
confort as a more expensive car.
I like reving it, so I hope will last.
The one I have, has all the toys in it,
so is too good. Next one, will be a
Mazda as well.
Take a test drive and you will have to
220hp, TCS, BOSE sound (optional)
wider tires (225/18), for the stereo I
would like to have the option to
randomise all CD, and the same with
repeat program. Also the option of
leting you program the songs (from any
CD indash) in any order wanted.
Auto dimming driver side mirror.
Car handles and rides extremely well.
Corners flat (17 inch wheels) and has
excellent brakes. Visibility to the
rear is fair with the spoiler. Gas
milage is poor; 15 mpg in city driving
and 23-24 highway (6 cyl with auto
trans). Turning circle is large so car
is awkward in parking lots. Could use
another 2 inches of front seatlegroom.
However would buy the car again because
it is fun to drive.
Handling, cornering, sheer fun to drive
this car. Car body is tight and well
put together (no rattles).
