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


This is my primary business vehicle as a traveling sales manager with a long commute. I purchase a new or almost new car every three years and because of the high mileage and business use I prefer mid-size sedans that don't kill me on depreciation. My 6S satisfies my desire for performance and handling. I opted for the five-speed which I am glad I did because the engine is a bit weak until 2500 rpm then revs smoothly and quickly. Great cruiser, reliable, fun and 23-27 mpg

Best Features

Bose system is awesome. Great controls and ergonomics. Great handling, w/on-center steering at highway+ speeds. Nice equip. for price - great value, style and reliability.

Worst Features

Could use 20-40 more ft./lbs of torque. Needs and extra gear (I understand '06 and above have 6spd). Somewhat cheap dash material, leather seats comfortable but low-end materials.
