2009 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Test drove a four cylinder with four adults on board. Went straight to the V6. Love the power and this car has power. Took a trip with four adults and luggage, drove generally 10 over the speed limit. Was surprised to get 27.7 mpg. Another trip with just myself and setting the cruise on the speed limit, I got just over 30 mpg. Mileage is not as bad as advertised. Have 21000 on the car now and have had zero problems, same as the 04 Mazda 6 we had. Love driving this car when I can get it away from my wife. Powerful, smooth running and shifting, handles, and 100% reliable, the ride is a bit firm along with the leather seats, can be taxing on a long trip. Couldn't be happier that I own this car.


Best Features

Blind spot monitoring, heated seats, climate control, rain sensing wipers, keyless entry and ignition, seat memory, navigation system, Bose stereo, sun roof, handles great, excellent acceleration, and a smooth as glass automatic transmission. Did I mention a hoot to drive.


Worst Features

Build a little more comfort into the seats. This isn't an issue for average commutes. You feel it on a 300 to 400 mile trip though.

2009 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Bought used with 8K miles. 6sp Manual fun to drive but could be geared taller. Very close ratios, do not use all 6 in normal driving. But if you want to thrash it, it's fun. Impressed with trunk. Headed on trip in old minivan with 5 people, but it broke down. Switched all people and gear to Mazda and went on 3Kmi road trip. Immense trunk swallowed luggage with ease. Got up to 33 mpg @75 mph. Enough room in back to prevent fratricide. Came back from that trip very happy with vehicle.


Best Features

Stereo with aux input, and multiple DC outlets. Large trunk with non- intruding hinges. Remote fob opens front windows (great in TX summer). Symetric styling of gauges and and switches is much improved over previous Mazda 6. Gas Mileage.


Worst Features

Lower gearing for 6 speed. Tachs at 3K @ 70 mph. Folding side view mirrors. AC vents for back seat.

2009 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

bought this 2009 mazda6 for my wife last year after she put 235k on her 2000 626. she loves it - base model, sound system very good, very good pickup for a 4 cyl w/ 6 spd manual. black interior shows dust and dirt more quickly. you can bury several bodies in the trunk without blinking, and sleep in the back seat with two others. ride is smooth, handling excellent (for its size) and A/C will freeze you in seconds. we had a 1990 protege with 250k, and i got the hand- me-down 2000 6 (averaging 150 miles/daily) and still running like a watch.


Best Features

6 speed manual, basic sound system is very good, handling/pickup for 4 cyl excellent. styling wonderful


Worst Features

more optional interior colors for the sangria red, hand brake moved to other side of shifter

2009 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I got a Black Mazda 6 3.7l V6 Gran Touring with Black Leather. I really believe the car is the best in its class. It has more styling than the accord, camry, malibu or altima. It is the fastest in its class too. If everyone in the market for an altima or accord test drove the mazda I believe it would out sell both. My sister has the v4 altima and the only thing that is better about her car then mine is I think the leather is of better quality in the altima. Other than that Mazda wins on every level!


Best Features

The Smart Key system, Blind Sport Monitoring is very helpful/useful and the rain sensing windshield wipers are also cool.


Worst Features

I wish they made the v6 in manual, used a better quality of leather on the seats. Make the Display on the radio larger and make the car faster. A 0-60 time under 6.0 would be great!

2009 Mazda 6 s Sport 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is my second Mazda6. My first was was a 2006. I love to drive my Madza6, especially with the V6 it has. However, recently it has been running hot. I had to get it towed once because of this issue, and had to return it to the shop for the same thing a few days later. The service person advised me that it was a manufacturer defect. Needless to say, the car is still in the shop. Other than that, the car with its unique look, is fun to drive. Interior features can be improved like the Aux plug that is located in the armrest isn't convenient (why not put one on the radio). Folding mirrors with turn signal would be nice.


Best Features

V6, Auto/Manuel Shifter, sleek body design


Worst Features

Folding mirrors with turn signal, Chrome Door pillars, more interior/exterior colors.
