2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I have over 70,000 miles on my Mazda6 S (manual trans) and I'm completely satisfied with its performance and reliability up to this point. Other than the stock Michelin tires which were dreadful in the snow I have absolutely no complaints. Oil and brake pads are all that it's needed for service so far. I average around 24mpg with 3.0 engine and manual transmission. If you like sporty ride (a little stiff for some), decent motor, great handling, nice interior, reasonable mileage and great reliability I highly recommend this car.
