2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

To me this is the perfect size car, ample for four average-sized adults. It actually has more power than needed, but handles it very well. I have over 12,000 miles already on it. The worst gas mileage it has recorded is 24 mpg; the best about 29 mpg. You must enjoy shifting to use its capabilities - 6 speeds and a turbo power band between 2900 and 5600 rpm. Engine is very quiet. I drive in mountains and snow; traction is excellent. Handling is predictable and "like being on rails". I enjoy the understated appearance; think the exhaust outlets are a bit overdone. With a slight effort you can fold the rear seats down, allowing snow skis to be carried inside, or take your dog on a trip.

Favorite Features

AWD, automatic climate control, audio system, compact size, decent gas mileage, understated exterior, bargain price.

Suggested Improvements

Increase tire clearances slightly to allow use of more tire options, i.e. winter tire sizes.
