2007 Mazda 6 i Sport Value Edition 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I got this car to replace my 15 mpg truck and am now getting over 30 mpg. A month before I got it, I never thought that I would ever be driving a Mazda, but I love my car. The handling is amazing, the 4 cyl still has enough oomph for me (I drive it hard). It looks good in any color that it's offered in. I have no complaints about this car. I love driving it. It isn't that expensive, you get over 30 mpg, it's a whole lot of fun to drive, it looks cool, it's safe. Mazda knocked this one outta the park.
The hatchback! If you are interested in getting a Mazda6, get the 5-door version. The ease of getting anything in or out of the back is much easier. It has tons of storage. I am SO happy that I got the 5-door hatchback. A must have feature!
