2010 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Seat cannot be moved all the way back. I am 5'10" and even then I would need to move the seat at least 5" back to have my legs not too much bended. Ironically, they sell this car as sporty one. Next, I cannot reach the steering wheel when laying back even a little bit. Again, you don't drive any car completely upright like a tractor. Now, when I am upright, the steering wheel covers the view of instrument table. If I want to see the table, I must move the wheel all the way up and that really looks like driving a tractor. Overall, not being able to sit comfortably in this car makes me problems on long trips due to my sensitive back. 24mpg at 65mph without A/C. That's ridiculous.


Favorite Features

Both it for external design. Didn't want to see yet another Accord around. My mistake... Amber lights 205 tires with enough clearance to use snow chains Lights turn off automatically, not bothering with beeping if left on.


Suggested Improvements

Distances from seat to pedals and steering wheel, the height of the seat and the height of steering wheel are so wrong. It looks like its taken from some 1950 car. So wrong positioned. High-short beam handle should be one command(not two positions) Air to the back seat? USB? Many,many others...

2010 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

We got this car to replace our Corolla with something safer. It's been a great car for us so far. The engine, while not super powerful, is very smooth and loves to rev. Between the engine and the close-ratio 6-speed you can always find the power band. I was never lacking in power up to 11,000 feet on mountain passes, a feat my corolla stumbled on. The handling is wonderful, very composed and confident on twisty roads, but the ride is very smooth as well. It looks great, and the interior and trunk are enormous. The factory stereo is probably above average, the seats are grippy without being constrictive.Too early to notice any repair issues, engine seems to be getting stronger as it breaks in


Favorite Features

Steering Wheel Controls Ride/handling Slick Shifter Tons of room Huge trunk


Suggested Improvements

5th and 6th Gear too short Cubby in front of shifter too small Fuel Economy could be better Sunglass cubby too small

2010 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Cool car. Loving the m6 6man! Got the I sport. No need fog lights (can install after-market later/cheaper) in area. 16" steel rims and tires will be replaced after tire wear with non-stocked 17" or 18" alloy rims and tires at invoice price. No need leather wrapped steer wheel and gear shift head. With that said. Go for m6isport over more expensive m6itour trim, the zoom zoom is the same!


Favorite Features

Exterior design. Awesome fun manual driving-->total gear/rpm control. Smooth handling. Nice extra large trunk.


Suggested Improvements

fuel economy

2010 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have been very dissatisfied so far with the 2010 Mazda 6. I have the Manual sport edition. My major complaint is the throttle lag. My 1998 Corolla with 160K miles had better acceleration. Other complaints, the car shudders when reversing, the hand brake doesn't work well, the temperature control is not great and the car bottoms out very easily, I have to go extremely slowly over speed bumps. I highly recommend taking for an extended test drive before purchasing


Favorite Features

Looks good, nice looking interior, holds corners well


Suggested Improvements

Acceleration, reverse gear, temperature control, suspension
