Zoom-zoom refinement at a bargain price
By lcmunson on


2011 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Picked up a 2011 black 6 six-speed during a year-end dealer blow-out. At a price less than a new 3, I am very happy with this vehicle vs the '08 3-touring that I traded. At 1200 miles, engine is starting to loosen up a bit and fuel economy ranges from 29-35 mpg; might still improve. The aerodynamics of this design are amazing .... on moderate downhill stretches it just rolls. As an old stick-shifter, this is an amazingly slick transmission! Get one before the bean counters decide there are not enough customers. In my opinion, nothing in this price range comes close to the value.

Best Features

Handling, seats, big trunk, fuel economy (burns regular), fit and finish, tasteful understated styling, relatively quiet, decent standard sound system and great transmission.

Worst Features

Return 6-speed manual availability to the rest of the model line rather than restricting it. Allow aluminum wheel option on base model as well as cabin electronic options.
