2005 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I traded a Hyundai Elantra for the i6 4 cylinder and have been pleasantly surprised. It is fun to drive, has peppy acceleration, gets good mileage (28 mpg on a recent trip with three adults and luggage at 70-80 mph) and sticks to the road. My wife says it is nicest driving car she has ever driven. It is very quiet with a great stereo. Lots of room in the trunk. Back seat leg room is a little tight, and the interior fabrics are not the best. The A/C in extreme heat is marginal, with tinting of the windows works great. Added a satellite radio in the upper glove box and it is now a fabulous long distance road car. I would buy again.
They way it hugs the road ... it feels like you are driving a sports car and not a sedan.
Needs a little more back seat leg room and better fabrics on the seats.
