2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I read the reviews, and there were two things that stood out that I have found are problems; random loss of power and the clutch is a piece of garbage. When I first got it I worshiped it, but with time, I noticed the clutch slips at higher RPMs under acceleration and I have always noticed the times when it loses power. And you never know when the power will not be there. Bad in hilly areas with that clutch. Oh and the build quality, some parts are super cheap. Maybe that is just cause I came from an Audi. And once in a while my shifter is really stiff.
Steering, handling, interior seats and set up is really enjoyable. It is not a bad car. The Bose is nice.
Paint scratches easily, clutch is junk, and the shifter needs a little clean up so it doesn't get tied up in itself.
