So much fun, so little compromise
By ambivalence on
Vehicle2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewI can't say enough how much I love this
car! I know there are no perfect car for
<$50k (or above?). But it's amazing to
me how little you give up for how much
you get in this sexy 5-dr hatchback! I
can go to a $50k budget and there isn't
another car that can beat out this
package in every major aspect. The
holistic approach that Mazda took to
driving pleasure really pays off (see
below for highlights). Beneath the
aggressive exterior is a car that blends
in the handling (and good looks) of a
sports coupe, the luxurious ride of a
lexus and the utility of a compact suv.
Best FeaturesTaut chassis and suspension setup, quick and intuitive steering, great sound of the V6 on high rpm, slick and accurate manual transmission, strong brakes, sexy lines and profile. And of course, the priceless look on people's faces when I open up the hatchback!
Worst FeaturesMore low-end torque and a few more ponies; gearbox could be a little tighter, as it is it feels a bit fragile. Bring back the yellow exterior!
