2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
What a joy to drive. My husband bought me the car last year because of its sporty look with the hatch, the fact that it was a 4 door and came available in a 5 speed, and its overall safety rating. We got the blazing copper metallic and we've tinted the windows and put on Mazdaspeed wheels to make it look even sportier. For 20 years I drove Nissan 280z-300zx's and this car feels just like that but in a more practical size. What fun and a pleasure to drive; I have to keep an eye on my speed because I get to cruising real fast and don't even feel it. Great pick up, great handling; fantastic sound system and awesome look all make for a real enjoyable ride.
Color, overall body style, hatch, Bose sound system, superb handling, smooth ride ... I could go on and on ... I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the car.
Better gas mileage for a V6, but I guess for the power, you can't have everything.
