2009 Mazda 6: Weekend at the Track

July 06, 2009

The wife and I logged aboout 900 miles in the Mazda 6 over the weekend, stopping at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (they like it when we call it that) several times to take in the insane shriek of GP motorcycle engines cranking out somewhere around 290 hp per liter. The 6's specific output, while adequate, is somewhat less.

Here's a shot of the 6 next to the James Dean Memorial at the intersection of highway 41 and 46 in California's central valley.

Overall, the 6 treated us well, achieving 30.2 mpg on the 350-mile return trip. There are, however, a few niggling details I'd like to change about the 6. More on those later.
