2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I've had Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans and various American cars. This is the best car I've ever owned. I bought one for my wife too. My Mazda came fully loaded with leather, 6 CD in dash, heated seats, moonroof, wing, ABS and traction control. It is fast, great- looking, deceptively roomy and has a great sound system. The 17" wheels hold the road like a train on a track. The 6 speed auto is a blast to manually shift. I come from the muscle car era and my wife only drives automatics. If you are looking for the best blend of a family car and a sports car at a great price, look no further. The 5 year 50K mile bumper to bumper with free roadside assistance is icing on the cake. Zoom! Zoom!
Looks, sport feel, power, exhaust growl, auto shifting, sound system, overall value.
Rear defroster takes awhile. Turning radius could be shorter.
