2005 Mazda Mazda6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is the first new used car I ever bought and I love it. I'm in the military and I just came home from Iraq in Feb. '06. I wanted a car that defines myself and my hard work over the years. This car does it. It hugs the road, it's very nimble, and I love the engine roar. The factory stereo system is mind blowing. I hate that the Mazda dealerships charge so much for repairs. I had to buy a new transmitter for my keyless entry. Overall, great pick for a first car.
Factory stereo, traction control, alloy wheels - no need to by gaudy rims, cat eye looking head lights, shiftronic gears.
Cloth seats could be leather, all of them should have the sports grille and fog lamps. Spoiler would be nice too.
