2006 Mazda Mazda6 Wagon s Sport 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought it in San Diego and I was all excited about its feel and six speed transmission along with the looks. It was a looker and felt nice and sporty. But I was quickly disappointed, and I am much happier with a Volvo 960 now.


Favorite Features

Stereo system, interior colors, looks, sporty handling


Suggested Improvements

Fragile doors,bad fuel economy (not the indicated 19/28) check engine light,key remote stops working,uncomfortable seats that need more cushioning,downright pathetic turning radius, the worst ever!!!

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Wagon s Grand Sport 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great alternative to SUV and not very common. I'm 6'4 and 260 so seating in front is ample. I've got the Grand Sport and it's a great value for it's class. Fuel economy could be better. Love the pet barrier. Nice interior/exterior lighting. I'm very happy even though I only have 7,000 miles on it.


Favorite Features

Overall driver comfort and utility of the vehicle. Good in snow as well. Toasty seat heaters. Auto up windows and remote window operation. Great 6- speed auto transmission, very smooth shifting. Cool key fob too.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy or bump up the horsepower. The security system should beep instead of the horn tooting when armed.

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Wagon s Grand Sport 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I wanted a fun-to-drive station wagon as an alternative to an SUV. The Mazda 6s met the mark. The manual transmission is great--very smooth clutch, quick response (much better than automatic). It holds the road well. It has plenty of cargo room. Unlike some other wagons, the back seat folds completely flat--this is great, especially for transporting animals.


Favorite Features

Responsive engine and transmission (manual). Good road handling. Rear seat folds to make a flat surface.


Suggested Improvements

6-speed manual transmission would improve highway fuel performance.

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Wagon s Grand Sport 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Nice car, poor fuel consumption (13-16 MPG, city). Dealer unable to find any problem. Non aggressive driver averaged 20-22 MPG, same conditions) with 3 previous Taurus wagons.


Favorite Features

Good looking vehicle, fine in most respects, dissatisfied with fuel consumption.


Suggested Improvements

Foot brake and gas pedal too close together. Steering very sensitive to road crown.

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Wagon s Grand Touring 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This car is a lot of fun to drive - the Tiptronic transmission is great in the mountains and really helps the acceleration. It handles very nicely and cruises very smoothly at 80mph. Interior design is beautiful. Two complaints: fuel economy - I do mostly freeway driving and am only averaging about 20mpg. 2nd complaint - 800 miles on the car and the check engine light came on. Haven't brought it in yet; but am sure it's nothing - car is running fine.


Favorite Features

Handling. The handling is what makes this a fun car. The car sticks to the road like glue; it takes a lot to make this baby squeal.


Suggested Improvements

Acceleration in automatic mode leaves something to be desired - but just switch over to manual and it fixes all of that.
