Nothing, except maybe the cost of fuel, if you're a lead foot.

Balanced, In Every Way. — Ridiculous performance. Even with AWD and dynamic stability control it still wants to break traction and can give a little bit of power oversteer in the wet. Appearance? Well these things are always subjective, but I think it's sex on wheels. Can quite easily get over 500km out of the 65Lt tank, but when you start putting your foot down and using all the 190kw it can chew the juice pretty quick. Fun to drive? Whadda you reckon? It's the perfect balance of luxury and performance and will give a LOT of cars a run for their money.

Awd, 6 Speed & Turbo — Great family car with BOOST, Classy & sporty styling. The AWD 6 speed drivetrain makes for a great platform along side the 2.3 DIZI Turbo powerplant. Decent aftermarket support & plently of mid level performance capabilities. Good handling car out the box, Great interior layout.

Mazdaspeed 6 Thumbs Up :) — I love this car, it's very well built. Very powerful, 280 horses and doesnt feel like it, although it does need better brakes, and tires dont last very long either if u use it as a daily driver. But other than that it's great :)

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

Mazdaspeed6 — Best car I have ever owned. Never had an issue with quality or any engine problems. The turbo 2.3L goes with the 6-speed transmission and AWD very well. This car never misses a beat and I would not rather have any other car on earth. Mazdaspeed6, the most fun car you will ever own.

My Zoom-zoom! — No dislikes here except it could have more horsepower if they would have turboed the 3.0L instead of the 2.3L! This car is a blast to drive, (so far no speeding tickets, knock on wood.) Interior could have been a little more luxorious but its a perfect sleeper car!

You can't afford an M5.

Cons

You care about resale value.

Zoom-zoom To Tha Maxxx, But With A High-entry Fee, Up And Down Performance, And A Pricey Exit. — The Mazdaspeed6. Perhaps Mazda's last car for a while to put the zoom-zoom into a full size car. Reviewers gave it stellar reviews back in it's intro in 2005. All the specs were there: electronically- controlled AWD, Direct Injection 4-cylinder turbo, a close-ratio 6-spd manual, limited-slip differential, and plenty more. Enough to put it, at least on paper, into the top 'super-sedans' of the time. Some even likened it to a poor-man's M5. True, it was - but not without it's drawbacks. The inevitable Evo/STi comparisons were done, it was then realized that the Speed6 was considered more of 'grand-tourer', the speed was there - but not without compromise for comfort.

Fun By Jdebbas
