Best for the money
By Ed on
2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed 6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
After 80,000km some thoughts: -Clutch is a challenge (in a fun way). -Turbo NEEDS 94 octane. -Gas consumption: 7.5L/100km on I15 from San Diego to Canada @80mph. Average over 80,000km is about 10L/100km (fuel consumption is effect the most by acceleration rather than speed) -Inconsistent tire ware (alignment checked several times) -Keyless entry (auto locking) is very unpredictable -Winter tires are a must for snowy conditions -Ample room for 4 adults -Warranty issues: power windows, auto locking, power steering pump. (fuel consumption is effect the most by acceleration rather than speed)
Fix the electrical. Same power with less octane. Better gear ratio for 6th gear (@120km/h it is 3000rpm).
