2006 Mazda Mazda6 s Grand Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
I traded in an 04 6i so the S model was a wonderful step up. Great handling and acceleration; with the 6 speed "shiftable" sport auto trans. Nice dashboard, and features on this model with HID, 18" wheels and factory heated leather seats. Really nice dual storage compartment. Sad to see this model depart for 2007. Have had a few minor problems. #1) Driver's side lumbar support just broke and #2) front rotors warping for no apparent reason. Both issues being warrantied by selling dealer no questions. Nice car for mid $20's with all rebates.
HID, 18" wheels rides nicer than 17's 6 disk CD, sunroof and heated leather for Chicago winters all standard on this model.
Never noticed the road noise on test drive. Sorry for smokers as ashtray is removed and replaced with power outlet on this model. Advanced keyless entry and ignition for all Mazdas models. You listening Mazda marketing?
