2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Before buying this car I had done a lot of research on cars in its class and for the money there is no car that even compares. My particular car is fully loaded and still costs less than any of its competitors. My car has the manual gearbox that shifts perfectly, and the v6 motor that has not great power but the a range of power that makes it feel sporty. The engine makes a decent note with the stock exhaust. The clutch has great feel. Stiff enough to have fun on the track but soft enough that your left leg wont shadow your right. The Handling is amazing. Very limited body roll but then road noise at highway speed is very loud. Overall a great car for the money.
Manual Transmission, Exterior Styling, Quality of leather seats in S version, Sound system, perfect handling, price.
If I wanted to waste so much gas I would drive a tractor. Sound system needs to be complete with ipod hookup. The great sound system is needed to be heard over the road noise.
