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


I have always liked to drive a stick and so I opted for the 6 speed manual. It is a mistake on this car. The gearing is such that the car revs at 3000 RPM or higher on the highway at 65-70 MPH. I drove an automatic when on a trip recently, and it only revs at 2000-2500 RPM at highway speeds. This gearing is probably why the automatic gets better mileage. The automatic shifts fast and smooth and is no slouch either. If I had it to do again, automatic all the way. The four isn't bad. But the six kicks tail. If you can get the six for a good deal, jump on it. You won't regret it even with the lower gas mileage. Option wise, it is almost in a class with a Lexus

Best Features

Body style, stereo, seats, driving position, steering wheel, floor mats included, mp3 player plug in.

Worst Features

Change engine gearing on the standard so the car revs at 2500 RPM at 70 MPH like the automatic. More lateral support in seats.
