2010 Mazda Mazda6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Nice, agressive looking and responsive. Easy to handle on high speeds.
During the first year of combined highway and city use there are major issues that didn't appear on other cars I've owned (Toyota, Opel, and Chevrolet). Unoccupied passenger seat and front speaker make noise as if I was driving an truck 10 years old. The radiator heat sensor was stuck and the car overheated (covered by warranty). Front disc brakes lasts less than 10,000 miles (it's less than 20,000 mi and it's the second change). There's clearly audible noise in the front suspension on irregular roads. Overall, quality is far, far away from that of Japanese and American cars.
