2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I have had way too many cars first off. This one ranks in the top 3 or 4. I recently acquired it from my wife a few months ago as we thought she needed a minivan again. This car drives absolutely awesome, a little soft on low rpm power. Handles better than many "sports" cars. Great brakes. Solid quality feel. Loaner car during service is great. I avg 23mph, 27-28 on road trip in the mountains. Bose is great. It just feels right to me.
Looks, handling, interior, power, stereo. Uh, just about everything.
You can't please everyone no matter what you do. 30 more horsepower to gain on the Altima SE.
