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


There were several cars I was looking at when I bought my 6. The Lexis is 300, Acura tsx, Volvo s240, to name a few. I only stopped and looked at the 6 because my friend wanted to look at one. After I drove it I looked at Edmunds.com for reviews and really did not see anything to turn me away so I bought a fully loaded one. It's comfortable; It runs good, not to small/big. It's just right. However these people on here that rate the 6 a 10 when it comes to gas are nuts!! My Sticker said 22/29 MPG. Seeing how all I do is highway driving I figured 29 would be ok. Well, I check my mileage every time I fill up and the most I ever get it 22MPG. I have a 2001 Ford F150 crew cab 4x4 that gets 21MPGHW

Favorite Features

I like the Automatic climate control; I use it all the time. The Bose Stereo sounds great. The car looks great!

Suggested Improvements

More MPG!!! I'm already looking to get rid of my car to get a VW Jetta TDI (40+MPG) especially with today's gas prices. Metal dash kit, the gray plastic just doesn't cut it. The red lights have got to go. Trans. shifts ruff (sometimes) when accelerating. Doors are thin and get small dings too easy.
