2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
My 6 is now 3 yrs old, and has over 65k miles on her. She still drives great, handles superbly, and has yet to have any "major" work (knock on wood) done on it. The only real draw back is the crappy fuel economy.
Amenities! Basically this very reasonably priced car, has every bell and whistle you see in the much more expensive cars. I love that (i.e., heated seats, heated mirrors, pwr drivers seat, sport shifter, radio and cruise controls on the wheel, etc.)!
Perhaps a 6-speed automatic trans, would help w/ the fuel economy issue. If this car was capable of getting 30+ MPG, it would be a top notch car all the way.
