2006 Mazda Mazda6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
The Mazda6 is a well made car. It is tight, especially compared to the Malibu which was one of the loosest cars I test drove. It's still too early to tell, but I'm not sure if I like the 6 speed automatic transmission. Not being a sports car person it seems a bit shifty from start to 5th gear which doesn't take long to get there. I wouldn't recommend it for circumstances where a "family car" is desired. The Sonata seemed a little more appropriate in the same price range.
