2008 Mazda Mazda6 s Sport Value Edition 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I picked up a 2008 Mazda6 last week. The car is an absolute hoot to drive. I was driving a Pontiac Grand Am before and there is no comparison. The Mazda6 is lightweight, handles superbly and is FAST for a 4-cylinder. The manual capability on the automatic transmission is nice and I've used it a couple of times to downshift for passing, etc. The interior seems to be laid out well and it has some quality to it. I'm disappointed that an AUX plug for my iPod didn't come with it. But, the Value Edition does have an in-dash 6 CD changer and so I've just burned a bunch of CDs in iTunes and I'll listen to my music that way. Gas mileage seems to be average. Definitely consider this car!
