2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Fast. Fast again. Do not buy for a teenager! So far, I love this car. I've only had it 1500 miles, so it's too short for a reliabilty rating. I'm an older adult who appreciates a fast 4dr sedan that doesn't look like a toy boy racer. It's understated looks and power are great. Rides smooth and quiet. In fact a little too quiet, I may have to open the exhaust a bit for more of the deep power sound it deserves. It sticks to corners like it's glued to the asphalt. But the ride is very comfortable, a nice blend of sport and comfort.
Power. Supportive seats. 6 spd. AWD. Fast turbo spoolup, very little lag. Bose sound.
The rear seat does not fold down from the factory. The engineers added stiffening braces that are in the way and removed the latch pulls. However the latches are still there and can be modded to be operable, allowing skis and skinny stuff to pass thru the bracing.
