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


Review

Great car for value on the market. Good millage as a cars with over 270 PS under hood average 21 miles per gallon. Bed side is only limited speed to 132 mph. In Germany hgwy no doubt. You can get easy over 155 mph and the worst is that this car can do it more than that. Nice acceleration 0-60 under 6.5 s. Beast!!! Only speed limit and breaks poor quality (pads changed after 14K miles and rotors after 22K) are under average. Also hand set free system is screwed only for US and Canada with dailling European nr you can do it on phone book.


Best Features

Iluminate dash controls (blue and orange clocks) Awsome. Bose system and traction. Zoom Zoom ZOOOOOOOM. I deffenetly love it.


Worst Features

Breaks (poor quality need to be much better for that kind of power) and no offer 4x4. Shame

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


Review

Exterior design is very attractive. Excellent handling, good pickup from the 4cyl engine. Could be better on the fuel economy but not too bad. Ride is well controlled but it can be a bit busy. Decent room inside, good design to the dash board. Interior quality is a mixed bag. Some parts of the dash and doors are very high end but other parts are cheap feeling. Leather quality is decent, if a little stiff feeling, but it smells good though. Xenon lighting is excellent. I would suggest this car for those who like spirited driving, if you drive it softly it may leave you a bit cold.


Best Features

Handling is best in class. Great in the snow. Decently Comfortable, the fit and finish overall is good. Good safety features and excellent reliability potential. Looks expensive in the upper trim models. Decently quiet on the highway. Decent power.


Worst Features

Competitors get better fuel economy. The cheap parts of the interior really take away from the overall ambiance, Mazda usually does better.

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


Review

I bought this car still under warranty with roughly 35000 Miles on it in 2011, Car was great drove amazing handled great, I am used to SUVs So it was an adjustment with the wanky 4Cyl init, And very light weight which not a fan of, After having it and discovering the cons there are alot of them, With the HID headlights i had one go out. I thought the bulb was dead took it to mazda and well it needs all new wiring 1000 to fix and then the AC tube leaked. Alot of inside noise when driving at high speeds. Brakes suck, picking up speed and down shifting sucks, The radio is worthless!! the frames in the back the plastic around rear windshield is falling off will not stay attached. JUNK!!


Best Features

The interior is very cool i have black dash with carbon trim and tan seat with zebra looking print on inner part of seat. With black carpet. Very nice, Guages are very bright, push to start and the fact you can walk up and just grab the handle with key in pocket is very cool as well.


Worst Features

Headlights, Extend warranty, Better AC, Push start button by steering wheel not by gear shift, Use metal on or behind bumpers, make the car not so weak feeling. Over all by a charger they are amazing!!! But then again you get what you pay for! spend a few thous more and get an a ride of your life best decision i made!!

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


Review

ive been reading reviews of suvs on here thinking of trading our 6. after reading about the issues with the arcadia i thought id check out reviews for the car i already own. these 6's rank high and i thought id put in my 2cents. our 6 has push button start, roof, all options but nav and leather. telescopic steering is nice. fastest 4cyl ive ever drove. 34mpg @65mph, city mid 20s. back seat room is largest and most leg room ive seen. fit and finish is nice but plastic on windsheild pillars starting to warp at just 36k miles, and we park in a garage. guess in the sun at work during the day is taking its toll. traded a hybrid civic on this, 6 has +pwr,+room, and almost same mpg


Best Features

4cyl power 170hp, same as some v6 cars roomyness rivals big cars, back legroom is an engineering marvel. observed 25 mpg city, 34 hwy, why even get a hybrid or a compact car? styling, looks like a lexus cost, buy a loaded 6 for several $k under a camry or accord. reliable, our 2006 mazda 6 never had any problems. powertrain reviews look good too. just change oil and drive for 200k.


Worst Features

i wouldnt suggest any improvements but mazda needs to step up their marketing. theres a ford fusion commercial on every 5 mins but mazda consistantly gets the highest reviews for all their models sectors except the rx8. the mazda speed3 beats the caliber srt and hhr ss. the mazda cx9 beats out the acadia, flex, acura. i will never buy a car without reading edmunds customer reviews. a coworker got a used outlook that was in the shop constantly-u read the reviews one these and u see why.
