2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
My wife has an 08 Mazda6, which we love, but when I saw the 09 I had to have it. It is roomier without looking like a large car, the 4 cyl has a little bit more kick to it and is good enough for most people. I have the advanced keyless, which rocks, and other than the 'new engine' smell I've had with every Mazda ever (which goes away in about 100 miles) this car appears very solidly built and corners just like the 08. Stereo is better too, and the control layout is easier to deal with. The dash is gorgeous at night. It's too early to tell MPG yet, but all things considered this is a fun car to drive with lots of the nice things that make long trips enjoyable.
Aux for iPod and XM radio, dash lights, advance keyless (it's really freaky not taking your keys out), roomy.
I'd still like slightly larger side view mirrors, and while the steering wheel raises/lowers and telescopes, I kind of wish it would tilt. Minor things, really.
