2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The Mazda comes with leather, manumatic 6 speed and comfortable seats that compare with any German make. The fit and finish at delivery was flawless and much to my surprise, the first 2500 miles have given me an average of 28.35 MPG with 80% highway driving at 75 MPH. The Bose audio system is outstanding for the jazz and big band sounds I like. On the winding roads of Kentucky and Wisconsin the wagon handles as well as most "sports" cars.


Favorite Features

Great value and performance, plus comfort.


Suggested Improvements

The throttle response at take off could be smoother.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

After buying Honda/Acura all my life, I couldn't resist the deal I got on my 6s 5-door with 6-speed automatic, leather, Bose, the works. I was close to buying an Acura TSX, but of course Acura wouldn't budge on price; I got the Mazda for $5K below invoice (including the rebate). The driving dynamics are fantastic. The car feels very solid, and the steering feel is like no other car in this price range. The ride is just right for me, firm without being too stiff. Sure I'd like more torque, but I find the six-speed tranny in manual mode lets me keep the revs up when I need them, and easily gets me up to speed. I find myself driving the car just for the fun of it.


Favorite Features

Handling (steering feel, flat cornering), Bose stereo, ride quality, heated leather seats, price. Sum is greater than it's parts; you have to drive it to appreciate the "oneness" of this car.


Suggested Improvements

Seat cushions are too short for me (need more thigh support), rear-seat headroom is limited in hatchback, noisy fan.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car! It's my first MAZDA and I can't believe how happy it makes me to just sit behind the wheel. WOW! It hugs the road and loves to let its power be known to all. It's cool to see people check out your car.


Favorite Features

The sporty ground effects and spoiler are just the right combo. This car is the perfect luxury/sporty mixture.


Suggested Improvements

None at the moment. Continue to work on the fuel economy.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Really fun to drive. Very roomy cargo area. Gets lots of compliments on its sporty looks. Must burn mid-grade fuel or performance is severely downgraded.


Favorite Features

No rattles, great quality. Very peppy. Great sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Really poor quality plastic dashboard. Looks much cheaper than should be on a $27K car.
