Good Car For Personal Use. — what I liked about this car was that its very easy to drive the handling is amazing, and how it looks. also how good it is on gas. what I dont like is that the thermostat keeps messing up, its a little small and the engine light wont go off.

A Very Good Car — This car is overall very nice and reliable. It is a very good first car for anyone. I would recommended this car to others. There have been minor maintenance I have had to do on the car, but other than that it has been a great car.

Pros

I love the Bose stereo system. The storage is good and the back window wiper is nice.

Cons

It is not very good on gas. I've had it for a year and it's been in the shop 3 times already. People overcharge for labor on it. I guess if it has more than 100,000 miles on it, your in for a lot of repairs.

Okay Car If You Like Taking It To The Shop! — I got this car after driving my Dodge Shadow ES for 18 years. I thought I needed something different. MY MISTAKE!! While my Shadow is still running and driving around town, my Mazda 6s has been in the shop 3 TIMES in ONE YEAR of owning it. Get something else if you want reliable. Buy a DODGE! I know I am.

Family Sports Sedan — the V6 had alot power and i love the 5 speed manual, good in the snow, fun to drive, the back seats folded down to give you more hauling space, the handling was really good on the road and fun to drive in the show

Pros

Had new brakes put on about a year ago and new tires in march. It drives very good and hangs curves well. I love this car and the sport style.

Cons

Really no negatives besides the mpg 27. It is a v6 so it likes gas but not terribly bad

Very Sporty And Reliable — Its a sport car and drives very good. You can hang curves and move right on. It's a pretty quick car to be stock but I haven't had any problems out of it. Like I mentioned earlier, new tires and brakes and the maintenance has been well kept.

Mazda Power But Not The Quality. — For a 4 cylinder had a lot of a power, handled exceptionally well, but shifted poorly, had the autostick and got worse as mileage went on. Drivers door window was often off track and gas mileage plumetted around 60K with no solution.

Cant Pass Up This Offer! — very clean. well maintained reliable car. tinted windows, premium sound system, aftermarket wheels, and exhaust. gets 20 city 26 hwy mpg. It has very low mileage for a car that is six years old. Very fun to drive and it will jump if you feel a need for speed

Decent — Overall this is a good second car for me. Going from a 1996 Honda Accord with a 4cyl engine, to a zippy V6 is a nice transition. The quality of the car is great, it looks good when clean, and the car is fun to drive for the most part. Living in Minnesota, it gets through the snow well, except when going up a steep hill with a manual trans. LOVE the Bose stereo and roominess of the cab, and trunk.

Worth Every Penny Buy It. — This car is a great buy. Its Fast, Sporty, Reliable, Gets good MPG, is fairly low cost to maintain and repair (althogh i've never had to go and get it fixed or anything.) and its an absolute pleasure to own and drive. I had a longer more in depth review but my internet cut off :(

Pros

As it's a wagon, and grey at that, it's pretty stealthy!

Cons

Fuel mileage could be better.

Happy Zoom-zoomer — Overall a great driving car. Grey exterior with a grey leather interior. If I'd waited one model year it would have had a 6 speed, but the 5 speed is fine. Lots of storage room, especially with the rear seats folded flat.
