I never thought that a 4 door sedan could be this fun to drive. I have the 4 cyl. with 5 speed and it has plenty of power, handles excellent in corners and highway speeds. I bought this Mazda6 with the intention of giving it to my son when he turned 16 and now that the day has arrived, I hate to give it up. The a/c works great, shifting is smooth and quick with its short throw design and it comes with some special features not expected in this cars price range, like dimming lights after entering the car, auto shut off headlights, if you forgot, great bose stereo system, electronic trunk release and many other features you would not expect for the price. All and all a great car to drive
Handling and quick shifting feature is my favorite. It really gets around corner without issue, great braking and has a smooth powerful 4 cyl engine. You can spend the money on the 6 cyl, but I am not sure how much more you get for the price.
Change the shift knob. The paint on the metal plate on top wore down in a matter of months, I need to replace.
