2011 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring Plus 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
This is my first time owning any mazda and for the most part I can say it is OK. I own the Touring Plus model with a few extra features. First thing I must say is the car is very slow and the 4 cyl seems lousy and sluggish. It is a very loud engine for not being that fast... The extorior styling is beautiful. I love the trunk, even though fitting some larger boxes through the small opening can be difficult. Since the day I owned the car, the radio has been very staticy and even when close to local radio stations. Tried to take it back and get repaired and they said it was fine, which it is not. Heritage Mazda of Towson has bad service and is pretty expenisve. Prefer the Camry SE over this...
The BSM, (blind spot monitor) exterior styling, large trunk, electroluminescent gauges, and large back seats.
Better interior dash materials, new radio with better antenna, higher quality brakes, (lots of brake dust) higher quality carpets, new 4 cyl engine at is quicker and more fuel efficient, (govt. fuel economy ratings are mediocre and Inget around 26 hwy driving, 6 speed automatic transmission in all models, a few new extorior colors, (gray looks like a pooter blue- i own the silver paint), fit and finish of some cheap plastics on the dash.
