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


Recent used purchase. M6s so far offers a spirited and exciting driving experience. It's comfortable, stylish, & sufficiently powerful, although latter could be better. Hatch is very versatile and plenty roomy for four adult commuters. Tires need replacing at 27K miles: they spin when slightly wet; brakes to be upgraded, too. Faint engine tick emerging which Edmunds.com claimed is problem w/"camshaft caps": to the dealer it goes under warranty. High revs to get moving & low-end torque are nuisances, but punch is a thrill once they're figured out. Mid-rear-childseat clip is near hatch at car back-may need extension. Otherwise, great car to be kept a while.

Best Features

Performance, road manners/grip, style, zesty revs, 6-speed trans, versatility/room, leather, uniqueness.

Worst Features

Not many to suggest. Turning radius, more power/improved low-end torque. Gauges tough to see in bright light. Child seat latch (middle) should be like others in car. Different OEM tires.
