2005 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Fun to drive for a four cylinder and gets good mixed gas mileage, 28mpg, for my weekly commute. Great buy for a healthy combination of sporty, frugal and roomy, im 6' 4".


Best Features

Nice 17" rims on the base car makes it look a lot more expensive than it was. Good looking integrated audio screen.


Worst Features

Cloth seats could be of better quality.

2005 Mazda 6 s Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my car a couple weeks ago from the Toyota dealership I work for; it was a trade-in. As soon as i saw the car, i fell in love (I've been a mazda fan my whole life). I used to have a 03 Protege5 5spd, which i think is the best car Mazda has made. This car gets the job done with a fun flare. With the ferrari red exterior, it certainly brakes necks. It's not the quickest but it is definatly fun to drive. Very comfortable and versitile, going to and from work and taking it out with your friends at night, its just a very fun drive. Definatly recomend it!


Best Features

Ferrari red exterior, great styling, low maintenance costs, VERY smooth ride, LOTS of cargo space and very roomy all around


Worst Features

The tranny tends to shift late in reverse

2005 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I went to over 15 locations to find a Mazda 6 in my area. Now I know why they are so hard to find. This is one of the best mid sized sedans for the buck! I found a beautiful Sonic Blue 2005 Madza i sport 6 sedan and it was a major upgrade from my 94 Olds Cutlass Cierra to say the least. The handling of the Mazda 6 is very good and the speaker system is above average (No Bose). My mother drives an Acura TSX and she wants to trade with me. Bought at 57000 miles. Now at 63000 miles.


Best Features

Very good speaker Systems. Exterior is slick and you can't stand but to admire the car every time you look at it.


Worst Features

Maybe a little extra pep on the acceleration.

2005 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this as a used car. It is a 2005 Mazda 6 hatchback and have had it for about a month. No problems at all and runs great. The fuel economy has been great! I love it... It got into an accident but was repaired impeccably! The only thing that needed replacing was a caliper boot which the dealership replaced. I would definitely get this again!


Best Features

Slick style of the car!


Worst Features

Enclose the headlights so no water can get in there. Maybe a little more umphh when you push the peddle down.

2005 Mazda 6 s Sport 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Solid car that is fun to drive, decent V6 overall although its just the duratec V6 from Ford, has great power from 3k and above but definitely needs more low end torque below 3k..gas mileage is subpar, when im driving it nice i can get up to 27mpg, but 24-25 is more common..awesome to drive on curvy roads, the stiff frame enables you to hug the road and you can fly through corners..5 speed is also very slick and a lot of fun to drive..bought this car w/ 18k and haven't had to replace anything yet through 67k besides regular maintenance (F & R pads once, F & R rotors resurfaced once & then replaced, tires once)..heated seats and leather are also nice


Best Features

heated leather seats, accelerating above 3k, manual transmission, ability to hug the road through curves, exterior styling, its always fun to look at it


Worst Features

low end torque & gas mileage need to be improved (or at least 1 or the other), brakes tend to be noisy for a few minutes after first driving but then goes away
