2006 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I traded in a 1999 Mercury Cougar for this car after my brother was in a terrible wreck and lost a friend so I wanted it for safety! I love having all the airbags and the cage I feel soo much better driving. This car is amazing, it has the same pep as my Cougar but much better gas mileage (about 27 in the city). I went looking at a Highlander Hybrid or Mariner Hybrid but ended up with a luxurious roomy and comfy sedan for much less, plus the Mazda people were amazing.
Navigation system, Bose, moon roof, leather seats, and the amount of room. The gas mileage and 18 gallon tank go far. I recommend the all weather mats because they catch all of the dirt and help protect your interior. The side curtain and all the other airbags are a great safety feature.
Rear-parking assist, MPG tracker and blue dash lights instead of red. Some kind of alarm that tells you if passengers are not wearing their seatbelts would be really nice.
