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


After driving a Camaro Z28 and various sportbikes I am shocked to see that a family-hauler can handle this well. Smooth (manual) shifter. The front wheel drive is a little disappointing and there's virtually no torque below 3000RPM but all in all it is an excellent package at a very good price. Dealers are willing to let it go several thousands less MSRP (mine was about MSRP-$8000 - what a steal!). Highly recommended if you don't absolutely need RWD.

Best Features

Sharp styling, excellent handling, interior, excellent stereo (Bose).

Worst Features

Seriously needs more low-end grunt. Add a 6th gear for the manual tranny (for highway cruising). I wish it was RWD or AWD...
