Very disappointed in my Mazda6

2005 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

It seems like a solid car, and it handles nice, but there are too many things about it that fall short of expectations. Bought the 5-Door S model with 6 speed auto. I have owned it about 2 months. Compared to my '98 Maxima with a 5 speed manual, this car is SLOW. Maybe the automatic is the problem. It couldn't get up a hill if your life depended on it. The ride with the sport suspension is horrible on bumpy roads. The gas mileage is pathetic. I average 19 mpg combined. Climate control never blows hot air. Honestly, I would gladly take $2,000 less than what I paid for it and buy something else.

Favorite Features

Hatchback, handling, body style.

Suggested Improvements

Needs way more low end torque. (Torque moves cars, not horsepower). Offer the 5 door without harsh riding sport suspension. Improve gas mileage.
