2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Gauges too high...when you have wheel tilted and seat adjusted normally, wheel blocks gauges. Some small trim defects, misaligned panels, etc. Wind whistle. Good mpg, nice suspension. Feels bigger than it is to drive, backing up a chore. Compliments from others on styling. Standard DSC a plus. Transmission can be felt downshifting hard when decelerating which is annoying. Very quiet at highway speed. Nice interior layout with exception of gauges vs. steering wheel. Too much bass at low volumes--stereo. Nice, roomy rear seat. Plastic wheel covers hard to clean (brake dust). Enormous trunk--very nice.

Best Features

Steering accuracy. Trunk space. Very low wind noise. Dash design aside from gauge pod placement. Standard stability control. Looks not too boring like a Camry, not as weird as Accord.

Worst Features

Gauges should be lower, angled differently, or move in conjunction with tilt steering. Seatbacks too large in front seats, feel like I'm on a throne. Weird transmission feel when decelerating, can feel gears too much.
