2009 Mazda 6 Sedan i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have always liked to drive a stick and so I opted for the 6 speed manual. It is a mistake on this car. The gearing is such that the car revs at 3000 RPM or higher on the highway at 65-70 MPH. I drove an automatic when on a trip recently, and it only revs at 2000-2500 RPM at highway speeds. This gearing is probably why the automatic gets better mileage. The automatic shifts fast and smooth and is no slouch either. If I had it to do again, automatic all the way. The four isn't bad. But the six kicks tail. If you can get the six for a good deal, jump on it. You won't regret it even with the lower gas mileage. Option wise, it is almost in a class with a Lexus


Best Features

Body style, stereo, seats, driving position, steering wheel, floor mats included, mp3 player plug in.


Worst Features

Change engine gearing on the standard so the car revs at 2500 RPM at 70 MPH like the automatic. More lateral support in seats.

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


Review

I have owned my Mazda6 itouring for 4 months now and I can tell you without a doubt this is the best car for the money on the road. I test drove 13 cars before deciding to pull the trigger on the 6. I drove both the i&s and decided on the 4 cylinder for the fuel economy. It has plenty of jump and is really fun to drive. I love the improvements they made redesigning this car. I have put this car up against the BMW 3 series, the Acura TL, the Honda Accord, and several more. It more than holds it's own with handling and suspension. Everyone tells me how nice this car is. It is so fun to drive. What more can I say? Zoom Zoom!


Best Features

My favs would be the overall appearance of the car, the perfectly placed controls, the compartments for all my accessories(ie. garage opener, bluetooth headset, glasses, gps, ipod, etc), and the OE Michelin MXV4's are really a smooth ride. Suspension is really good.


Worst Features

Interior materials on dash are hard plastic and a little cheap looking. The Sirius display does not show enough info.

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.


Best Features

push to start, keyless entry,huge trunk space


Worst Features

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

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!!!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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!
