2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This has been a very dependable car since I bought it in July 2006. I have been able to drive it in all seasons and the car has been great! I put Blizzaks on for the winter and with the AWD I had no problems at all getting around in snow. The fuel economy has been better than the EPA ratings. I average around 25-26 during normal driving but if you drive more aggressively, expect mpg's in the low 20s. I've seen as high as 31 mpg on road trips and as low as 22 in town. The car has been in for minor repairs like check engine light, radio/climate control display quit working, and a light clanking sound coming from the front suspension. Car now has 34,000 miles and is fun to drive every day!
Black cherry paint with gold package gets lots of stares! HID lights are a nice touch. Climate control keeps you comfortable in all seasons. Plenty of power and acceleration for any driving condition. AWD is nice too!
Car requires premium fuel which can be quite expensive. Car has a few minor rattles and creaks in colder weather.
