2009 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I have had my 6 for 9 months (~9000 miles). Love the exterior and the performance. I am a little disappointed in the fuel economy. I guess I miss my turbo Saab mileage. I have to have the brake rotors replaced as they are already warped even though I am VERY easy on my brakes. The car also seems to have a "niggly" vibration as the engine revs pass through 2500 RPM. Overall the car is a great value, handles well, loads of power, love the engine growl. My original choice was going to be either a BMW 3 series or an Infinity G35 sedan. The Mazda 6 convinced me I didn't need to spend the extra cash to get what I wanted. Great job Mazda.
Exterior styling, I added the rear spoiler, mud flaps, and trunk lid sill protector both look great. Seats are very comfortable.
I was looking for a manual in this model but it is only offered in the 4 cyl. model. Optional premium audio system. The Bose system is kinda flat.
