Vehicle i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Review I should preface this review by saying I am a total Mazda fan. My wife has a 2013 Mazda CX-5 that has given us 3.5 years and 33,000 miles of trouble free service. Before my 6, I had a 2008 Mazda3 for six years and it was rock solid reliable and a ton of fun. Ever since the new Mazda6 design was previewed and released in 2013, I've practically drooled over them. I wanted one for years and finally made it happen in October 2015. My Deep Crystal Blue Mica 2016 Mazda6 i Touring sedan stickered at a little over $27,000 with its options, which included Bose stereo, power sunroof, blind spot monitors, and rear cross traffic alert. With my trade-in (the aforementioned Mazda3) and some haggling, I paid a little over $21,000. What can I say? The car is fantastic. It rides smoothly (although it does have some road noise thanks to the 19-inch wheels), has plenty of power for accelerating and passing, handles like a dream (seriously, no front-wheel-drive family sedan should be this fun on a curvy backroad), gets great fuel economy (I average 26 in the city and 34 on the highway), and looks like a much more expensive car than it is. My wife and I are planning on having a baby within the next year and the 6 has plenty of rear seat room to accommodate a child seat. Cars.com car seat safety check gave it an excellent rating as well. I should also mention the trunk is huge, another good thing for a sedan to have. The only negatives with this car are the road noise (nothing extreme, just more prevalent than a Camry or Sonata), and the front seats can be a bit narrow for...um..."wider" people (I'm included in that group). I have around 3,700 miles on my 6 and look forward to many, many more. UPDATE: Just crossed 10,000 miles. No problems to speak of, except the driver's seat bottom upholstery flaked in one spot. This seems to be an extremely isolated incident as I can't find other reports of it anywhere. Regardless, it was taken care of via warranty by my Mazda dealer very quickly and I was provided the option of a loaner car in the interim. Update #2: About to cross 15,000 miles with the 6 and zero issues. My son (our first child) was born last week and his car seat fits well and there is still plenty of legroom in the front passenger seat (his seat is installed in the rear passenger position).
