Pros

Appearance, handling, cargo space

Cons

Wonky stereo, a few cheesy interior bits.

Practical And A Blast To Drive — Handling and appearance are an order of magnitude better than any other midsize car available when I purchased it. Could use a bit more power, but the 3.0l duratec takes well to modifications. Gas mileage is decent if you don't drive it hard. Cargo capacity is equivalent to a small wagon, outside of a few pieces of furniture there is nothing I own that I can't fit in this car. Interior looks great and is comfortable but there are some minor issues with fit and finish. The Bose stereo sounds good when it works but has some problems. I'd like to replace it but this is impossible without an aftermarket center console.

Not Bad If U Want Something That Reliable — not good on petrol when at high speeds the handling is good and the sound of the radio is good not very fast good brakes never had to get any repairs done to it looks kinda sporty for a family car inside is notting special its nt as fun as my lancer was also is good safety wise coz of all the airbags and ave had a few near misses and i was able to stir it at the last second without losing control i think theres some system in it that help with having to turn shapely

Mazda 6 — Great car, wicked curves, a sexy sport ride. Good fuel economy, great Bose audio system, all the necessary safety features, side and front airbags plus ABS. Mine has a spoiler and the front of the car slopes fine. great car

Great Cargo Room In A Sporty Car — Its amazing how large the trunk is and how much can be carried with the rear seats down. Yet the car has great handling and decent pick up.

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

I love this Mazda model unfortunately  Mazda does not have this model anymore. I have only 32,000 miles on and it runs great!

Cons

NONE

25

Love It — It handles superbly and has guts when getting on the highway and shifts ever so smoothly. I have a 6 speed automatic and it reaches 60MPH in 5 seconds, then cruises right along. It has great cargo space especially for delivering our big screen to our home. For a 6 cylinder it gets about 30 MPG, it is very economical to run. Nice family car.

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.

Temp. Car Input. — I have only had time to upgrade the brake system. Front to rotors are slotted Rear rotors are blank All around ceramic hawk performance pads. Soon to upgrade: cool air intake system and filter, tint windows, change spark plugs and clean/refurbish rims.
