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 .

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 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. — 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 !

The Best Mazda Can Produce! — The Mazda 6 Sport is the most amazing car ever and fantastic value for money. The handling is great as is the cost of ownership. The look of the Mazda 6 is also great. The handling is very much sporting but you also have a real family car and is great fun to drive.

My Mazda 6 Has Definately Got Zoom Zoom!! — This was the first Brand New car I have owned!. It was an excellent choice! It is very sporty to drive,.. has good pick up for a four Cylinder. It is comfy to drive on long trips, the instruments are simple and easyto see. I love how it handles, ( have had it on race track for driving day) It is very roomy inside, for a medium sized car. We get excellent economy. we average 700kms from a tank with general city driving,.. and we get over 800, almost 900 on the highway .( 64 litre tank) In all I am very happy with the mazda 6. Would definately recommend to other buyers.

Mazda6 Zoom Zoom — It is a great car and fun to drive. It has lots of space with the hatchback with NONE of the looks of a station wagon. Cost of ownership is cheap with the 4 cylinder engine, and it still has enough horses to really move. The transmission also lets you shift manually on this automatic car.

Pros

sturdy, sporty, quick throttle response, amazing control

Cons

rear legroom a problem for tall blokes, in mid-summer heat of Dubai the a/c takes time to cool. Other than that, i've found no areas of concern.

Great Sporty Car With Amazing Control — I've had this car for over 2 years now and i have no complaints with it. It handles like a dream, its 2.3 motor gives me the power i need to give other cars a run for its money whether in city traffic or on the highway. Stability at high speeds and cornering is simply awesome makes you want to push it even more. Value for money deal - for what i paid i got 2.3 motor, cruise control, ABS, EBD, 6-Cd changer awesome music system, Leather interiors, climate control, 17" 10 spoke alloys, tubeless high performance Bridgestone tires, 2-tone radiant ebony metallic paint finish, spoiler lip, sports knob gear, triptronic gears, controls on the steering wheel, chrome tipped twin exhausts, halogen head lamps, built-in to head light case fog lamps. I think that's about it. For the same price i paid for this the accord, altima, lumina or the epica don't give the same returns.
