Really great car!
By mazdaman24 on


2006 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


I bought this car a few months ago after my former Mazda Protege was totaled. I bought it because it was a great value, fully loaded V6 for $13k and only 27,000 miles. The interior isn't as rich as the new model but it is certainly respectable and intuitive. There is storage aplenty and it's just the right size. The exterior styling is great, and the ride is firm but not punishing with the 18 inch wheels. The only downside is a slightly notchy transmission at low speeds, but at highway speeds this is the best car i've driven. The Ford-sourced V6 is potent, and I get between 24 and 29 MPG, excellent for a V6.

Best Features

The seats are the most comfortable i've ever had hands down, no aches after all day drives, the Bose stereo, exterior styling and interior functionality. It's also smaller than other midsize sedans which makes it sportier, and of course the handling.

Worst Features

A little better low speed transmission tuning. Gloss on the interior makes it look less rich, and there are small quality issues such as intermittent rattles.
