Great power and quickness for a 4 cylinder
Incredibly reliable and affordable to maintain

Overall A Great Value — This car has great power and quickness for a 4 cylinder and has been very reliable in the 6 years that I have owned it. It has never stranded me and has cost minimal to maintain. Front seats are uncomfortable in my opinion and I dislike the interior fabric, but this vehicle handles and drives great especially for its price point.

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

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.

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!!

Pros

Pretty quick for a 4 cyl. and great on gas.

Cons

Handling isn't the best and it's a bit cramped even for a compact sedan.

Surprisingly Satisfied — I've had this car for the past 4 years and have been fairly content with it as a commuter. I wanted a four door sedan that was fairly sporty, and got good gas mileage and it has met all of those criteria well.

Pros

Plenty of power V6 / 3.0L V V T, Awesome handling,best brakes of any car I ever had, outstanding fuel economy for size and weight ( six speed auto/ side shift trans )  low  cost of ownership , great looks, reliable,sporty,  many safety features .Great in snow and ice with winter package.Outstanding service support from  my local  Mazda service department !

Cons

Lacks some latest tech gadgets.  TPMS, wiper deicer,  This thinks I could add on I suppose !

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 .

Clean - Cool - Zoom Zoom. — Great acceleration any time, any season driving is always fun ,and frankly very safe . I Like the clean current looks compared to ford fusion (it's clone) and like it better than Camry. fuel economy is good in city and highway , Cost of ownership is better than any other car brand I have ever owned. Mazda is a brand that keeps on improving and have done a fantastic job in taking care of me, my 6 and my wallet !
