2007 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
This is a wonderful car. Mazda's done a great job combining sportiness/design/value in this car. Exterior really draws the eye, it just looks quick. Inside everything about where you expect it to be and falls to the hand easily. Ride is what sells the car to me it's fantastic. I took the 4 cyl for gas mileage (getting 28 from a midsize is fine by me). A little raspy when you put your foot down but it moves. Goes exactly where you point it - handling is a good as previous BMWs and Audis I have owned. This car wants you to push it. Brakes are 1st class.
Handling Handling Handling. Brakes are great too.
A little less road noise would be ok although I don't want the isolation of a Camcord. Inside door panels could be better. If you wanted to give me a little more go with the 4 cyl I wouldn't say no.
