Best Kept Secret Out There
By yamura on


2006 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I bought my '06 6s in early '07. Probably sat on the dealer's lot a long time because of the manual trans. However, maybe because of that I got a very good deal, too. Aside from a headliner that pulled away from the rear window and breakage of the lumbar support about 400 miles prior to expiration of the warranty, and somewhat early replacement of the battery, the car has been trouble free. It is a hoot to drive, strong runner with a good mid-range, and surprisingly good gas mileage avg about 22 in town and 27 on hwy.

Best Features

Fun to drive, surprisingly good on gas, reliable. Still on the original tires & brakes @ 52K mi.

Worst Features

(1) The headlight pattern using OEM bulbs no better than Average. (2) 5th gear could use longer legs for more relaxed cruising (3) Turning circle is slightly worse than that of the Queen Mary. (4) The whale-tail spoiler is a little too boy racer-poseurish for my taste.
