2005 Mazda MAZDA6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is my third Mazda in a row. I've had amazing reliability (obviously since this is my third and I put about 40,000 miles on the car per year) and I'm so happy with this one too. Each Mazda gets better and better. Options on other cars are standard on the Mazda and the price remains comparable to other makes. Nice! My fuel economy on my other Mazdas has always been better than manufacturer estimates and so far it's the same on this one so I'm concerned about some of the comments I'm reading about less than expected gas mileage. I'll wait and see on that.
The dash is fun and friendly. The Bose system is great and the integrated satellite option is a nice touch (and handy). The 8 airbags are nice to have but I hope to never know how nice.
Compass in rear view mirror. While it's an option with the Home-link system, I'd like to see the compass standard. Memory seats would be nice too.
