2007 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
The look and feel of the car is great. When it comes to performance and reliability, it broke down twice in the first two months of ownership and within the first 3000 miles. The car jerked and bucked and was inoperable both times and had to be towed to the dealership for diagnostics and repairs. On both occasions, the actuator throttle assembly went bad and had to be replaced. After the second breakdown and over six weeks of the car being in the repair shop, I exercised my lemon law rights as a consumer and got a full refund. This time, I purchased the much more reliable Honda Civic.
The interior and exterior features of the car, very sporty, drives like a sports car, takes regular unleaded gas, fun to drive, very smooth shifting manual transmission.
Improve the manufacturing with the throttle assembly, need better cup holders with covers, sound system could use an upgrade.
