2003 Mazda 6 Sedan s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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
buy it.
good luck


Best Features

220hp, TCS, BOSE sound (optional)


Worst Features

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.

2003 Mazda 6 Sedan s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Handling, cornering, sheer fun to drive this car. Car body is tight and well put together (no rattles).


Worst Features

Smaller turning circle. Larger gas tank.

Review

I love my 6. I have a 6s MT sport
package fully loaded. The car looks
great. This is the best front wheel
drive car I have driven. The car is
fun to drive, much more fun to drive
than the alternatives in its price
range. If you want a cushy couch on
wheels, find a Camary or Accord. The
6 rides a little harder than some of
the other's in its class and operates
with a feel for the road. Drivers of
Camarys or Accords tend to like to
feel removed from the road like they
are in the living room watching TV.
This is not the car for that, rather
one made for folks who like to DRIVE.
I have had no trouble with my 6 in 9k
miles.


Best Features

The combination of power and control. This is a VERY balanced car in terms of engine and suspension dynamic. Sure the Altima is faster, but would be in a ditch trying to hold the road while using that power. I shold know, the Altima finished 2nd (didn't buy) on my shopping list.


Worst Features

Marketing! No one knows a thing about this car. Mazda doesn't have this car on TV enough. Market the sport model AND the non sport. This car is a very well kept secret excet for with educated consumers who don't get in the "CAMARY AND ACCORD" follow the sheep line.

2003 Mazda 6 Sedan i 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car. It is just plain
fun. The 4 cylinder lacks slightly on
the acceleration, but makes up for it
in the handling and the steering. The
car comes with an eye catching design
that would leave many people starring
in the parking lot. If you are in the
market, definitely consider this car.


Best Features

I love the exterior and the interior. Better than any other in its class.


Worst Features

Beefing up the engine would be nice. But I am okay w/160 horses.

Review

Purchased the 6 after originally
looking at a Protege/Protege5. Decided
we liked the increased room and power
in the 6 instead. The car has plenty
of power and handling to match.
Originally interested in a 6i manual
but due to lack of cars with desired
options (ABS and side air-bags) in 6i
trim upgraded to 6s manual. This is
the first car I've anticipated since
before its release and am glad went
with the 6 over the Protege/5. Quiet
ride, smooth engine, excellenet
handling, good looks, better than
average warranty - an excellent car in
my opinion.


Best Features

handling, strong engine, warranty, interior quality (materials and build), styling, steering wheel audio controls (ought to be billed as a safety feature)


Worst Features

shorter clutch throw, short-throw shifter, HID headlamps, auto-up windows (auto-down on non-driver windows), non- integrated stereo, white guages
