2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed 6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


This is a commuting car for me. The overall performance is very good. Great mid-range acceleration, a decent AWD system. I have Blizzaks, have worked it hard in the snow and the system is not nearly as good as Audi quattro. You can't hold a straight line under full throttle as with the Audi, but you quickly adapt. A solid car. The suspension is very stiff, clutch a little high. The wife calls it a "chuckwagon". I love it. Had one weird experience: gulped a quart of oil on me in about 200 miles on a very cold day (about 10 degrees), driving freeway. Car had about 5,000 miles at the time. No problems since. Dealer had no explanation.

Best Features

Zoom zoom! Love the boost. Has a very light, responsive feel.

Worst Features

The 18" wheels look great, but they make for a harsh ride, especially in winter. Ditch the plastic body moldings, fake exhausts, rear deck lid. You don't see that crap on an Audi or Bimmer.
