Mazda on the right track.

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


Just got this MS6 about a month ago and have 800 miles on it so far. Love the overall look and feel of the car inside and out. I'm not a sedan person at heart, but I was willing to compromise on that to get this car over similarly priced sport coupes. It's the fastest car I've owned and it handles great too. Nothing about this car is light. The steering, clutch pedal, shifter, and brakes all have a substantial feel to them more reminiscent of something German, not Japanese. The ride is quiet, smooth and forgiving; however it is still stiff and sporty feeling. Gas mileage isn't too bad. I averaged 27mpg (mostly highway 75mph+), and still 24.3mpg (mixed driving, with lots of boosting.)

Best Features

Turbocharged 274hp engine/6 speed/AWD, HID's, 18" rims, lip spoiler/front and rear bumper treatments, sporty yet sophisticated design, Mica flake in the sunlight, auto up/down windows.

Worst Features

Touchy "on/off" clutch, lose the Bose sound system for something better; sunlight glare from the highly reflective center console and chrome Mazda badge on the steering wheel; post-ECU flash car feels somewhat smoother but not as fast; not offered in blue; sunroof in Sport trim; lower ride height.
