2005 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Four months new and under 3K miles, so not enough info on mechanics, etc. I do a LOT of errands and have some things I love and HATE, namely: shifter - "sporty" automatic zig-zag maze made like a manual. Having carpal tunnel and shifting 10x or more a day between PRD absolutely kills the hand/wrist. Pickup: extremely slow and extremely jerky, and I mean with a pronounced jerk when stepping on gas. A full 1-1 1/2 seconds to kick in, which makes it useless to dangerous when passing and power/speed is needed. Test drove 20 minutes or so but never noticed the bad pickup, and shifting wasn't done as many times as would be done in a normal day, so it wasn't noticed. HATE radio volume depending on speed!
Great cargo space, and vents - EVERY car should have these kind of vents! Can be positioned literally any which way to hit strategic spots :-) Those up/down side-to-side louvers on every other car are worthless. Like the glasses pocket above and other spaces to hold stuff.
PLEASE! straight shifter on automatic, no zig-zag maze! Brighter overhead lights in back seat and cargo area. Red LEDs, bah - use regular gauges no LEDs to go out. Bigger or another foot vent, one not enough. Sunroof makes car too loud/noisy like open window. FIX SLOW PICKUP! DANGEROUS!
