2005 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is a great alternative to a Honda Accord EX (I own a 2001 Accord EX also). What's not to like about this car? Build quality has been great. A 5 speed, 16V DOHC 4 cylinder, 4 wheel discs with ABS, Michelin Pilots, moon roof, Bose stereo, front, side and side curtain air bags. A very nice, fun to drive vehicle. Fuel economy HWY: 28 MPG City: 24 MPG.
Driving it. It handles like a sports car.
The manual transmission needs a 6th gear. It would improve highway MPG.
