2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
This car is great...I throughly enjoy driving it. I traded in a horrible Honda Element which during the first year became THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE. The Element left me on the side of the road at 500 miles and Honda's reliability/customer service was of no assistance. I am now devoted to Mazda. The car is a thrill to drive on the highway with a mix of comfort and get up and go to get me past those crawlers . I have had a couple of minor problems with vibration noise that the dealership repaired quickly. No complaints.
The heated seat was great in the winter for me but my kids were none too pleased they couldn't ride up front. I love the Bose stereo.
The fuel economy is not good but the "zoom-zoom" makes up for the extra cash at the pumps.
