Could be great but few issues mar the experience

2014 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Got it about a month ago; put 1500 miles so far. Nice-looking, spacious, comfortable interior. Has been averaging 33 mpg (mostly highway on weekends, in-traffic during the week). Decent audio with Tech Package. Mediocre TomTom GPS. Very buggy infotainment system; visiting dealer for the second repair. First was the Bluetooth/USB/Phone dying completely - was "fixed" by unplugging the battery, so the bug is still there and who knows when it's going to strike again. Second - one of the buttons on the "joystick" control got stuck making it unusable. But the biggest issue -serious road and wind noise at highway speeds. Make sure to test drive it at 65-75 m/h if you plan to drive on highways a lot
minimal body roll while cornering, predictable breaks, accurate (though a bit light) steering, fuel economy, blind spot monitoring, backup camera,
leatherette (good for driving with dogs), audio (for the class).
Infotainment system must be fixed, it's getting embarrassing. Noise at highway speed - I'd be reluctant to recommend it to anyone driving mostly at highway speeds (therefore only 3 stats for comfort). Slightly under-powered for a chassis as good as this one.
