2005 Mazda Mazda6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Overall this car drives and handles very Honda like. Great fit and finish for a car in this class. The clutch is a little too grabby while shifting from 1st to 2nd and sometimes 3rd gear when car is cold. If not careful (under emergency acceleration), the clutch will give off a burning smell (probably needs to be made of a better/harder material). My local dealership has had a couple of complaints on this same issue. It just may be a Mazda thing. Other than that, wish it had at least 15 more horses, and more space for "do it yourselfers" to change the bulbs in the headlight assembly. After the warranty is over, no more free bulb replacements!

Favorite Features

The sport styled cockpit and the subtle exterior looks of an Acura TSX for a lot less money. Will be a great car used car for the tuner crowd!

Suggested Improvements

Much tighter turning radius and better front seat designs to include nicer fabrics. Folding side mirrors with integrated turn signals.
