The Mazda6 is fun to drive. You may lose some tires because of the low clearance in some poorly maintained New York streets. The car does not like severe rain downpours either. I lost a fan blade that hit the radiator and pierced it during a rainstorm. The Mazda dealer said it was an "act of God." and the warrantee was not honored. I wrote mazda at no avail. Good car, poor service and a company that is not consumer oriented. I would not recommend it. A calm, careful driver.
Fun to drive. The hatch version is quite convenient.
Improve the quality of the parts. The radiator fan is quite flimsy. The Interior looks good but may not wistand the effect of time. The leather is quite thin and gets scratched easily. gas mileage is relatively high for this size car.
