Mazda 6s - great value

2003 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I have owned my Mazda 6s for a couple of months and I love it! Value is first rate: leather seats, powerful V6 engine, and beautiful design at a very affordable price. The 220-hp lets me run with most cars on the road while it doesn't kill me at the pump (although mpg could be better). And when I wax my car, I still catch myself staring at it; love the exterior design. The only thing you have to do to this car is open up the mufflers, add an intake and you have a legitimate, stylish contender that stands out from the economy-car pack. I cannot attest to the reliability yet, however, but I think these cars have done well considering '03 was the first production year.
Aggresive and stylish exterior (from the LED spoiler-mounted brake lights to the in-lens fog lamps), 220-hp 3.0 V6, electric blue paint, heated leather seats, amazingly spacious trunk, driver-oriented cabin design, very smooth cruise control
Gas mileage could be better, green lights in instrument panel when driving lights are on can be annoying, wish there was an aux input, sunroof should be a little bigger
