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.

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.

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.

Cons

None

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.

Good Car — The car is in the very good condition, just had an accident last week on the Easter day, the front is just damaged, But the motor, transmission and everything else is fine! Less than a month ago bought four brand new tires, because I thought, I'm gonna keep the car for a while.

My Mazda 6 — Good car for the money. Sporty, handles well, good on gas. Mazda will hold its value. Trunk is big but our family needs more room. wish i had a sun roof. Ability to go from automatic to manual is nice feature

Pros

Nice looking all around, tons of potential, and being a Mazda I can count on it being reliable.

Cons

Not very gas friendly of course, and it lags for a V6.

25

Overall... Awesome Car. — With gas going up, and it being a V6... it sucks down gas pretty well. Also it lags a lot in the lower RPM range... but when you step on it mid-range, then it's a rocket. Chassis is much stiffer than my last car. Also the interior is pretty nice. It's a perfect car to mod if you have the money.

Sporty and practical, so much fun, dependable

Cons

Avoid this car if you want something 0-60 in 3.2 secs. Not that kind of car.

Solid, Fun And Reliable — Intererior is beige (not my fave color but it'll do), exterior is lapis blue metallic. LOOOOVE it. No major repairs, just regular maintenance (oil changes, flushes, tires, battery). Gets 400 miles ter tank with about 50/50 town/hwy. Handles lovely and is solid. Not to mention a blast to drive!
