2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Have just bought the 09 i touring. Nothing but good things to say about the whole mazda buying experience. No pressure to buy no no hard sells.Let me have my way on the test drive. The 4cyl has great pickup, quiet acceleration, responsive steering, easy stopping. Ride quality smooth and tight, build quality tops. Test drove accord, camry, fusion. While all were good I felt the 6 was the most fun to drive. Also looks better than the competion.


Favorite Features

push to start, keyless entry,huge trunk space


Suggested Improvements

These are mentioned because I am finding it hard to complain about anythin. Larger center arm rest, cup holders compartment storage space

2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

What a car! Style-wise, Mazda hit a grand-slam: roomy 4-door practicality with unique sporty 2-door styling & so many features per $! Really nice 17" alloys. Stock audio system pretty good. Keyless start system rocks! Awesome dash layout & display at night. Super- smooth & quiet ride. Comfy seats. Perfect steering feel. Glides over curvy roads & corners with grace. SO fun-to-drive! Doors yield loud THUNK when shut! Greatest surprise: Even with 5spd auto trans, the 170hp 2.5 4cyl engine routinely leaves other cars in my rearview mirror from full stops with little effort. Even outperforms the 170hp v6 in my '98 626LX despite being much larger car. Generates refined, throaty growl. Superb!!!


Favorite Features

Favorite Features: Surprisingly great 4- cyl pick-up. Super smooth ride (feels like it glides over the road). 17" Alloys. Keyless entry/start. Quietness & refinement. Roominess. That loud THUNK when you shut the doors sounds like a tank! Brilliant Silver Metallic paint very rich & sparkly.


Suggested Improvements

Perhaps more color choices on mid-level touring models (eg. smokestone & light ice blue; other colors (pearly white, bluish-gray, a muted green) more light/medium colors other than red, gray & silver. Make Blind Spot Monitoring standard feature. 18 alloys as an option on 4-cyl models. Nothing else!

2009 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We originally dismissed this car because of its perceived weak gas mileage against its key competitors. We test drove them all and looked for several months at options. However, after test driving a Ford Fusion that had pieces falling off during the test drives, and a Malibu which was just too small with its lack of shoulder and width room....we came back to the Mazda. The V6 engine is fantastic. Smooth as silk. And doesn't have the annoying cylinder shut down like the Accord V6. Build quality is very solid and the ride feels great. Handles better than the Camry. The bonus has been the mileage. Thus far we have been getting 22 combined with at least 75% city driving.


Favorite Features

Blind Spot Monitoring is great. NAV and touch screen audio controls are very cool and easy to operate. Aero Dynamics on Moon Roof are solid. Hardly any wind noise when its opened. The combination of Trunk Space and Leg Room (we are a tall family of four) cannot be beat in this class.


Suggested Improvements

Rearview mirror seems imposing. Feels like it is too close to your face and impedes vision out the right half of the windshield. However, I am 6'4", so shorter drivers may not have this issue. Other thing I notice is that the steering wheel partially blocks the view of the speedometer.

2009 Mazda 6 s Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Replaced a 2005 Taurus, looking for a car with updated design, performance, and technology. Definitely found the great design, performance and nice bells and whistles. Respectable gas mileage, 22 city, 27 highway. Somewhat disappointed in overall comfort and noise issues. High level of road noise from 18" tires, very sensitive steering, stiff ride, and noisy engine and compressor/fans (very annoying). Unfavorable reflection of top of dash in front window. Engine/fan noise addressed once, but not convinced it is entirely corrected. Will pursue with dealership and will get used to the other minor discomforts.


Favorite Features

Exterior design, smooth transmission, V6 performance, bluetooth, BSM, interior space, dual exhausts. Black exterior with cream interior, very sharp. Combination leather/cloth seats.


Suggested Improvements

Road noise/softer ride (maybe different tires), less sensitive steering (steering wheel pulls terribly on uneven surfaces),engine noise.
