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


Review

Where to start? I was in the market for either the Audi A4 or Lexus IS250 but landed in a Mazda 6. I drove past a Mazda dealership, the new 6 just stood out. I went in, test drove the car and here I am 3 months later loving my decision! They compare the Mazda 6 to the Accord and Camry (class- wise) however, it does not compare! It is far superior and should instead weight against cars like the A4 and IS250. Sounds crazy I know but I am a total 'gear head' and was dead set on one of the aforementioned cars. The 6 changed my mind! This car is nimble, responsive and fast! It has all of the high end comforts without the high end price tag. I could not be happier with my decision.......!


Best Features

Quickness and handling highlight the cars' overall attractiveness (for me anyway). Interior space (I'm 6'2, 210) and layout were well thought out by Mazda. The interior instrumentation and colors blend perfectly. The BSM system is incredible as is the Bose premium sound system!


Worst Features

Rear a/c vents perhaps?!?

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


Review

Very Stylish best of all the sedans. Very quick acceleration, smooth transmission shifting. Handles curves like a real sports sedan should, yet has a very pleasant ride on the highway and over bumps, the 18 wheels are a plus. The car is roomy with options that you would normally find in cars twice the price. Overall: The best car I drove in its class by alot.


Best Features

Styling, acceleration, handling, smooth transmission with standard shifting option. Excellent options and five star safety rating in every category.


Worst Features

Day running lights and automatic door locks when car is moving.

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


Review

The new Mazda 6 (i touring) is a good car with decent features. Disappointments are: Travel computer is masked by clock. One or the other is visible at a time. The Travel info button is hidden. There is no auto headlight feature standard. You must spend about 1500-1600 more to get the xenon package. The auto on should be standard! Very irritating after having auto on on previous vehicle. Center console armrest is poorly padded. It is adequate at best. The radio is not the best quality. I find myself constantly adjusting the bass/treble to get a decent sound. Also no auto text scrolling for file names. Gas mileage has averaged 23-24 mpg with mostly highway driving. Brakes are just ok


Best Features

Design. Transmission.


Worst Features

Better Brakes. Better interior materials. Standard auto on headlights. Easier to use door lock system. This one is finicky! Better placement of button for windows and travel computer.

Review

I drive about 25K miles per year, and I replace my cars every two years with new ones. The last car I loved was my 2002 Passat. I finally found the perfect replacement in the Mazda6. Ride, quietness, interior, and handling are exceptional. The engine is good, though not as eager as the Passat. IMHO the newer Passats just are not as pleasing. Mileage on country back roads is about 30. Oh yes, the interim cars I had were Acura TSX and Saturn Aura. Sorry, just no emotional connection with either. Do try a 6. Price is right, and you will not be disappointed. I have come to like the car more, the more I drive it. The 6 has an attitude I like.


Best Features

Auto-temp responsive, accurate; handling; ride; comfort; quietness; BT; HIDs; the car just feels 'right'


Worst Features

Std. radio is adequate only; dash display shows limited Sirius info; need exit grab-handle over driver's door; 25 more horsepower and low end torque on 4-cyl engine;
