Nice! — Its cute for a chick, runs great, excellent on gas, parts are a little expensive unless you buy them online and use coupon codes. Overall I like the car and I would buy another Mazda if the opportunity came :) Thumbs Up!

Pros

Great handling, sporty, fun to drive, comfortable, easy to maintain.

Cons

City fuel economy, interior trim likes to break, roof liner -had to have it redone.  Did not like the fuel economy for in-city driving.

Sporty And Comfortable 5 Speed With Just Ok Fuel Economy. — Enjoyed the 5 speed and handling. Great passing ability on the freeway. Cruise control and comfortable interior with power driver seat and adjustable lumbar support make it a great long distance drive car. Can get up to 29 mpg highway, but just 17-18 mpg in the city was a disappointment.

Great Looking And Handling Excellent Driver's Comfort — overall has been a pleasure to drive this car, keeping in mind the underpowered 2.3 liter engine, but my wallet is full and once you get it going its a blast to drive, very comfortable behind the wheel of this baby, will drive it anywhere anytime in a mazda 6

Amazing Car — I think it's a fabulous looking car. Amazing handling and amazing leather interior. Good brakes, no sqweaks or rattles, amazing car to drive. I have manual stick shift because I think its more fun. I recommend this car to people who love cars but want something at a resonable price.

Sporty Family Sedan. — Amazing handling for a family sedan. Really good bose sound system. Nice pick up after tachometer hits 3,000 rpm. 6 speed auto transmission leaves little to be desired. Ovewrall I have had this car for 5 years now and I am really happy with it.

Very Sporty Family Sedan — If you know anything about driving and have some driving skills yourself you will not be even looking at camry, accord or altima. This is truly a drivers car with excellent fit and finish, very good built in quality and excellent bose stereo.

Zoom-zoom — I would say my overall likes is the performance, appearance, and cost of ownership. It is also a fun car to drive as well. I own a 2006 and I have had to get the transmission replaced already. Do not buy a used 2006.

I Really Love Mazdas — This car is in great shape, very well maintained. Mazdas are now known for their great handling around corners. I had a lot of fun in this car for this reason. Acceleration is descent for its a manual transmission, which makes it more fun!!

I Like It — Nicely engineered. Quick when you want it to be, smooth ride, so-so fuel economy. The inside of the cabin area is large enough for me to sit comfortably in on the long hauls. It's my wife's car, She's the nice lady in the picture.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Clean Cool Zoom Zoom !!! — I bought this car new in 2008 and still love it, I see many current 2012 cars and they don't have the same appeal my Mazda 6 was born with , for the money i payed I am very satisfied. I only wish I could update to high tech gadgets and make it look like it came that way from the factory .
