2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Currently a Honda fanatic - but I wanted AWD performance in a sedan and Honda has stayed away from manual transmission AWD sedans. So as I looked for years at used Porsche Carrera 4's (pricey!) and tried to convince my wife that a third or four car in the driveway was "OK" (what was I thinking), along comes Mazda with a magnificent AWD sports sedan. Forget the Porsche, and the need for more than two cars! I have traded in my Honda Accord (a great car) and have two baby seats in the back of this Japanese rocket ship. Took delivery with zero defects! No problems to date. This is my first Mazda; hats off to the Mazda engineering team and executives to price this lower than Audi & BMW!
