2004 Mazda MAZDA6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Purchased used with 56K on it. Love the handling and the styling. Different than the typical midsize car. I get a lot of double takes when driving it. Handles as well as my BMW 528it. Good size vehicle. Comfortable ride and good visibility. Only have had the oil changed, no problems yet. Plenty of get up and go, but the mileage could be better. I drive mostly interstate and have been averaging 26-27 MPG. I used to get nearly 30 MPG on the Bimmer, and it was bigger and heavier. It is noisier on the road, but this could be the tires on it. Two are OEM and two are different brand. I like the dash lighting.
Size of the car, usefullness of the wagon. Handling tops the list. I own a Miata and you can tell it has the same heritage. Overall driving experience. Comfortable on the road.
Better gas mileage. More adjustments to heated seats. One touch up and down windows all the way around. How expensive can that be? Some minor things on the heat/AC read out. Return to prior reading (ambient temp) after you change setting rather than having to do it manually. Auto open/close to S/R
