2005 Mazda MAZDA6 s Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
We just traded in a Lexus E300 (2000) for a new 2005 Mazda6 Sports Sedan, 6 cylinder, with all of the options. While it's not as plush as my Lexus, it is much sportier and will be lots of fun! It has a roomy trunk and the backseat IS just as roomy as the Lexus. The ride and steering are different -- more like my old Volvo 850 turbo wagon (1996) -- tighter steering and I can feel the road. I really do like this car, though.
Looks and the way it handles (I had a car with all of these options and more before).
Memory seats, auto windows up and down, power passenger seat.
