2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have had my MS 6 now for 6 months and 7,500 miles. It is a lot of fun to drive, but takes some work to master the clutch and gas pedal. The clutch is a bit edgy, and you need to back off the gas as the turbo spools up, especially in first and second!! One item seen in many reviews is the fuel mileage the MS 6 gets. For the first 2,500 miles the best I could do was 18 to 19 MPG. At 2,500 I changed the oil with Royal Purple. On the same driving route I am averaging 25 MPG mixed hwy and city. On the hwy I run 70 to 80 MPH, so I don't feel I'm driving too easy. Some may feel the car has a stiff ride, well it does, but drives like it's on rails!! Not for every one but right for me!!
Power and handling, it will dust just about anything on the road. I enjoy the fact that it requires some skill do drive well.
