2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Great car: original & stylish, excellent & spirited handling, high revs, 4 yr/50K warranty. I've owned a Mazda6s 5-door for about two months and so far find it exciting to drive, nice to look at, and very satisfying. Low end torque isn't best, but when engine runs up to 4K RPM, the thrust is invigorating, though may overwhelm some folks. OEM tires will be replaced: marginal in wet conditions, though not worn completely. I wasn't sure about an M6s initially, but owning it changed mind for better. Hatch storage is wagon-like. Great straight-line driving and car hugs road in all curves, no lean, great brakes, and taut ride make it a champ. Not class-leading power but does nice job!

Favorite Features

Looks/style, leather, driver's support, high revs/power, wheels, exhaust, autostick 6-speed trans, unique character, USA build and Ford ownership, overall pleasure to drive.

Suggested Improvements

More power, improved low-end torque; reduce mild torque steer; change out weak OEM tires; only driver's side window has auto down, no up; reduce wide turning radius; some interior materials need improvement-plastic console/door trim
