Great car all around

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


I've owned a few performance cars over 30+ years (MR2, Mustang, Audi, Prelude); this seems the best combination of high performance, comfort and cost. Cornering and handling like the MR2, power like the Mustang, safety like the Audi, reliability like the Honda-what's not to love?

Best Features

Power AWD for winter corners. Power-sliding around gravel corners. Understated styling. Surprising comfort in the base seats. Clutch takeup, general smoothness far superior to the WRX-STI and Evo which I was cross shopping. Real word performance due to compliant suspension on curvy, bumpy roads.

Worst Features

Why not a blue or green color? C&Ds MS6 developed a power problem, hobbling 0-100 times. I had one day where mine seemed a little down on power, too. Costly add ons (winter wheels and tires, air filter, chips. :-)
