2014 Mazda 6 Sedan i Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

The car is good - a little more sluggish than I expected, but still cute and fun. The problem is the technology package. After 4 months, I can say that I have given it my best shot, and it sucks. We have another car with similar features and this one is so sub-par. The touch-screen is so painfully slow, the features are clunky, entering in an address is horrible, and you can only do it while stopped - even if you are the passenger, so plan ahead! The voice control is totally useless. The Sirius radio loses the signal if you drive under a thick tree. And the phone bluetooth hook up keeps crapping out. If the technology package is important to you - look elsewhere.

Review

Have managed 32.6 MPG over 45k so far. Love the handling-it is a blast to drive. Could use a bit more HP. The transmission is flawless. It's nice to actually have a 6-speed instead of a CVT junk. Stock tires are junk. Opted to get 18" rims and 245/45/18 tires instead and the ride quality has improved a bit. Just a blast to drive and the MPG is a huge bonus. Have gotten a best tank of 578 miles and 37.9 MPG. Would be happy to answer any questions as I have one of the highest mileage 2014's out there according to www.fuelly.com from what I have seen.


Best Features

The 6-speed auto transmission and just the fun-to-drive factor. Handles great and is truly a driver's car. Not underpowered but a turbo would be amazing!


Worst Features

The seats are kind of hard and the "leatherette" could use some work.

Review

Just a tremendous car if you appreciate handling and enjoy driving. Has me looking forward to highway on-ramps and off-ramps. So stable and planted in corners! Good power, nice 6-speed Auto Transmission (love the paddle shifters on the Grand Touring), mileage is excellent -- easy to get between 35-40 on the highway at normal speeds, and even in-town, it usually gets around 30. It rides firm, no question: if you want a cushy ride, this isn't your car. But it rewards you every time the road starts to curve, and always delivers really good mileage. Good interior space, nice flat trunk, nice back seat. This is absolutely a must-see if you're considering any of the other family sedans.


Best Features

Handling and roadholding simply superb. Not a Porsche, but *so* enjoyable on a curvy road. Good power (heck, it's not a 300-hp V8), especially when the great fuel economy is factored in. Have driven over 12,000 miles (it's 8 months old right now) and almost always get 34-38mpg, even with some stop-and-go. Almost everything, from suspension to seats to controls is firm and direct -- really feel "connected" driving this car. Again, it's not a soft, luxury-car ride -- look elsewhere for that. But if you enjoy driving and need a mid-size sedan, this HAS to be considered. My only question is why you don't see tons more on the road. Reliability? Last Mazda I had ran over 400,000 miles.


Worst Features

Small infotainment screen and voice-command system clearly need upgrading. Otherwise, it's little things... wish the side mirrors mounted on the A-pillar; they're too far back right now. Tire Pressure Monitor erratic, and tells you effectively nothing (not even which tire is low). Wish there was an easy way to simply move up/down thru SiriusXM stations that are not user-memorized, other than turning tuning knob. Would be nice if center dash stack was angled toward driver. Wish clock was bigger and more prominent. Articulating headlights work great, but no effective user-adjustment for height. Like I said, it's little things... Mazda got the fundamentals almost perfect, at least to me

Review

The car has a great appearance and seemed to be a decent value, but the fuel economy has not even come close to the averages seen on the window sticker. The sticker averages were 26 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. My car is averaging 24 mpg and I drive mostly on highways. Would not recommend!
