2009 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
I bought an '08 Accord in March 2008. It was plagued with fault brakes and other electrical problems. So, buh-bye Accord. I know Mazda owners and test drove the '09 6. I had parked by Accord next to a 6 at the dealer's. The 6 made the Accord look like a dowdy Buick. The 6 has had zero problems. The interior is 10 times better than the Accord. The power seat is fantastic for my long legs. On the highway I get 30 mpg -- the Accord got 33, so it's a little less. I like a reliable car, and I do believe that I have found it. I've read some unfortunate things about the current Accords. The 6 might not hold its resale value as much as the Accord, but I won't have the car repairs that Accord needs.
The sporty sexy styling, the interior, the fit and finish, the ease of using the features such as the clock. The clock has 2 buttons 1 for hour 1 for minutes. Changing the clock is so easy to do without having to be a programmer and to execute some convoluted 12 step process
There is no warning from the car if I have turned it off and am getting out of it. I had not realized that I had grown so dependent on hearing a reminder bell.
Thank you for your review. My two top choices were actually between the 6 and an Accord, so your review was amazingly helpful for me. Exactly what I was looking for, without having to search through a lot of facts about each car.
