Right on Target
By Eric on
2007 Mazda 6 i Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Bought the 6 in March 07 after much research. After almost 3 years we all agree it has been an excellent car. 33MPG on warm highway trips at 65-70 mph. Typical 22-23 urban mix year-round driving. It has needed only oil changes and tire rotations at the local dealer. If you want blistering acceleration, buy another car, like a new V6 Mazda 6 or a Mazdaspeed 6. If you only occasionally use the back seat for adults, it is fine. If I carried tall adults in back on a daily basis, I probably would choose the new Mazda 6 or a Malibu.
It is fun to drive and light on its feet. Good brakes, steering, handling and acceleration. Excellent reliability. Excellent driver interfaces and climate controls.
None that I can think of, I did my research on my priorities and this car nailed it. For me a Camry or Accord was too big and too boring. I am SO glad I bought this car. I will keep it a long time.
