2005 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned this car 6 months and so far no problems. Good looking car that is fun to drive. Engine is fairly powerful and can easily merge onto highways as well as provide good passing power. My only complaint is the lack of a 6th gear. At 70 mph, the engine is at 3,300 RPM's. I have never owned a car that did that and it can be loud if you go even faster. Maybe with the automatic it is not as bad or loud? Anyway, overall good car. Also, has great storage capacity with the hatchback!
Hatchback, 60/40 folding rear seat, look of car (have gotten many compliments), outside temp gauge.
6th gear for the manual transmission, a little bit more comfortable seats (for longer trips).
