I bought the Mazda6i hatchback automatic in August and I am very satisfied. Actually it has exceeded my expectations in comfort and driving experience. Gas mileage is average. I expected better since it is a smaller sedan. Acceleration for a 4 cylinder is excellent and the auto-stick is fun to use.
Looks - this car is hot! Great to drive. Acceleration is more than adequate even though it's a 4 cylinder. Very comfortable interior. Bose stereo is awesome (of course).
The automatic needs a fifth cylinder! I feel like I'm missing something when I hit only four gears. Should come standard with an alarm. Otherwise a great car.
