Fun to drive sports sedan

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


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
