Pros

Excellent handling on highways, very fun to drive with manual transmission.  I loved the steering.  It was a very fun car.  The hatchback had all kinds of room to transport things.  I used it to pick up a crib and dresser at the same time from a furniture store.  It was a hoot looking at the workers faces when they saw what I brought!  Lo and behold, it fit with room to spare!

Cons

The ride stinks on broken pavement and washboard gravel roads and the seats are pretty hard.  My wife didn't appreciate them when she was pregnant.

I Would Buy This Car Again For Sure. — I would buy this car again in a heartbeat. I love the way it looks. The hatchback is very useful for college junk transport. The suspension is sporty and great fun. There is plenty of power form the V6. The manual transmission is a great addition. It was a fun car.

Pros

Handling, power

Cons

Gas mileage

45

Mazda 6 2004 — Good quality, very quick. Gas mileage is not class leading. Handles very well like any mazda. I have the manual gearbox and it is very smooth. Plenty of power to choose any gear at almost any speed. Winter driving is miserable for a front wheel drive car. Overall, I love the car and for someone who wants a sports car feel without the price this is a good option.

Pros

She's fast

Cons

Bad turning radius

55

The Blue Race Car — My son calls this "The Blue Race Car"...again, I think it is because of the driver but she does look fast! She has a lot of pep in her step but a terrible turning radius! She definitely likes to be pampered and runs significantly better when she's clean...don't we all? ;-)

Pros

Looks and handling

Cons

Acceleration especially when not in Sport Shift Mode. K&N air filter replacement helps to decrease highway rpms.  The 4 cyl needs another gear for better mpg!

185

Sporty And Stylish — Replacment for the Regal. Much better car. Crisp steering and handling, good looks. Motor is a bit underpowered in natural aspiration form. This is the second 6 in my family and picked this vehicle for reliability and style. She has been named Moco, which idk if that is too nice for those of you know what that means in spanish! LOL!

Pros

Very fun to drive - loves 90 but you don't know you're going that fast.

Cons

5 speed auto shifts too fast but it has auto-stick

55

Heated Leather, Bose 6 Cd In-dash Changer W/sub, Tint All Around — I love this car but wish it were a stick.. Performance is good though because it has the auto-stick feature. Build quality is good for a Japanese car, thin body panels ding easy. Gas mileage is great on the highway, fair in the city. Overall, with this car on the market, I'm not sure why there are more Camry's and Accord's on the road although that's part of the reason those are lame.... everyone has them.

Looks great, I love the styling for the price. Nice interior for its class, great handling!

Cons

Rev limiter, not enough power

I Would Buy It Again! — Overall good car, I would buy it again if they hadn't changed the body style. My next car will be more in the sport luxury class...I want the same sporty feel, but more power and a more quiet /smooth ride.

Pros

The looks, the drive, the reliability and the cost (or lack there-of) of maintenance!

Cons

The RUST!

125

Estates, Yes! — The vehicle has never had any mechanical issues so to speak of, other than a recall for a fan speed sensor back in 2006/2007. The vehicle has always been servied at its appropriate and scheduled times; and short of the vehicle having some rust problems - which most Mazda's in North American seem to have until recently! The only quam I have with it; is that the seats are great, but there is no additional leg support for long drives in either the front or the back. The "seat" itself is just too short! There have been no silly little mechanical issues, all we have had to do is replace a front brake claiper that seized, and the hatch release handle dislodged itself a couple of times (internally) which was a minor annoyance not being able to open it until I was able to get it into the dealer.

Mazda 6s Hatchback — This car has very good handling and power. I love taking it out with the 5 speed manual transmission and pushing the limits through corners. The gas mileage isn't anything to brag about for a sedan and it doesn't help that it's too much fun to drive this thing fast. If you're looking for a fun little sedan I reccomend this car.

The Best Car I've Ever Owned — My Mazda is the heart of our family trips and everyday to and from. We have never had a single issue (other than a blown tire) with this car. I am almost positive I will pass this vehicle down to my son for his first car. I feel that for a first car this will be the nicest and safest car for him. But until then he will just have to wait in the back seat.

Supreme For His Money... — good direct handling, nice riding, reliable. interior is made of good materials, leather and multifunctional steering wheel (perfect for me). suspension is still original, after 140000 km - stil great. the trunk is big enough. a park assistant will be very usefull, because of the dimensions, but mine does not have one.
