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


After driving a variety of Ford Tauruses, I bought the 6s (auto) after I test drove a lot of other cars. A few other cars have a slight edge (Nissan Altima and Honda Accord; similar models) with 0-60, but the overall handling, comfort, styling, and feel of the 6 blows the competition out of the water. The 6 is simply amazing to drive. It grips the road like a real sports car, and has the room of a sedan. The interior, comfort, exterior design, sound system, and general layout are all excellent. The tiptronic shift on the 6-speed automatic is a great compromise for someone who likes manual cars, but does a lot of city driving. Highly recommended, especially for younger (20's) drivers.

Best Features

Sunroof, Bose sound system, heated seats, tiptronic shifting, dashboard layout, external appearance, handling, acceleration.

Worst Features

Could use a tiny bit more push in the low end RPM's for quicker starts. Power passenger seat would be nice as well. Hybrid edition would be very much welcome.
