2005 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my car used with 24000 miles on it. I've driven it to school 40+ each way for a year now and also took it on two road trips - this car has gotten me there with no problems whatsoever. It's comfortable and reliable enough to get you where you need to go. Low range acceleration in automatic mode could use some work but I've gotten around that by using the triptronic to shift as needed. I love the steering wheel controls and large trunk space. All controls are easy to adjust while driving. Overall, I am very happy with the car, especially for the price.
Exterior and interior styling. Fun to drive. definitely get your money's worth. Triptronic option.
Power seats would be nice but its really not that big of a deal. As noted above, low range acceleration in automatic mode could be improved, however that problem is easily fixed by using the triptronic or getting a stick shift which I prefer anyhow. 5th gear for automatic/triptronic engine.
