I think I got a lemon?
By harleyhoney on
2005 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my 6 brand new, I thought it looked really cool, I owned it til 6/2008, I only had about 25K on it... things were always wrong with it, first thing my headlights kept burning out I went thru 4 sets of bulbs over a 1 yr time frame next the transmission would shift randomly, and clunk all the time, dealership said nothing was wrong with it. Blew out vacuum hoses, brakes went out, battery was shot after 1 yr, there were many other things. The seats were hard as a rock, it was not safe on ice, handled very badly always got stuck in the snow, traction control (what a joke) the dash scratched so easily. I was not very happy with this car, I was so happy to trade it in.
Very sporty looking, decent stereo (yet I replaced with aftermarket), good gas mileage, great torque for passing, dash color
Needs more leg and head room, I'm 6ft tall and hit my head everyday on the pillar, if was difficult to have passengers, softer seats, separate the stereo from the heat (they did in 06 model), fix the wide steering prob
