2007 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I've had my cherry red mazda6 for 2.5 years now, with 30,500 on odometer. It's been great; still fun to drive, no major mechanical or build issues (I did get the steering clunking noise fixed according to the factory service bulletin), and it still seems to be the best sedan in this price range for someone who likes to drive--not just get from point A to point B. My lease is up in September; I'd buy it then, but I'd rather have the hatchback version, so I'm actively looking for a hatchback with a manual tranny, 6 or 4 cyl engine, and a few more options than my car has, like fog lights, mooonroof and spoiler. I just can't get real excited about any of the new cars on market now.
Engine growl when winding through the gears, slick shifting manual tranny, sporty look, overall build quality. It's just darn fun to drive!
