2004 Mazda Mazda6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this car used in the summer of 09 with 129k on it. It now has 157k on it and I still love it. It has great handling and decent power for a 4 cylinder. These cars have a very good suspension IMO. It can handle tight turns at good speeds without offering too stiff of a ride. Mine has 17 inch tires, which probably makes a bit of a difference over the stock 16's. The interior is also well appointed and really comes alive at night with the interior lighting. If you like to play golf this car will also suit you well, there is easily enough room for 3 golf bags. The back seat can be a little tight though.
Body styling looks great, even after 9 years.
Performance is good.
Big trunk, even more with the back seats down.
Nice sounding stereo with good base.
Love the feel of the steering wheel.
Could have used an extra 10hp.
You need a special tool to change your own oil.
Car has a few interior rattles.
No Aux. imput.
