Zoom-freakin'-zoom! — A family sedan with almost 300hp stock and a price tag of under 30k - how much better can it possibly get?!!! The looks of a mazda are unique - there are no other cars like that. The feels is different from anything else - it's a blast to drive whether you are in a rural neighborhood, on a freeway, or on a road course. This car is versatile and is plain awesome. Downside - it's partially ford. That is, indeed, a little upsetting, but it's still a mazda inside so the zoom-zoom factor is always there!!!

Awd Turbo 6-speed — Total sleeper. This car may appear to be a sporty looking grocery getter but its really an EVO-Eater!

Best Value For A Awd Sports Car — Very good all around car. I purchased it because it is one of the few four door sedans you can get with a 6 speed manual and AWD. Seems like most AWD cars use automatic transmissions these days which is a shame. My wife and I share the car so it was important to have more room than say the WRX (which has a very small back seat). I wish the back seats folded down, but that helps keep the car more rigid which helps in the turns. The tires it comes with are summer tires. Not sure if this is standard across the US, but in DC it is. I just moved to Boston and they perform alright in snow, but you have to be careful. The AWD keeps the wheels from spinning, but it doesn't help the car stop. With dry conditions, though, the car hugs the asphalt really well. The turbo gives it some major muscle but there is a little lag. Still it gets good torque at low RPM so it is not the worst out there. I picked this car over the G35, WRX, Volvo S40, and VW Pasat. Mainly because it had the most room, best price, and came in a manual trans.

Fast Sleeper Sedan — a little heavy and handling can get jittery at times, but overall a very good sedan. built in japan. very fast. slick shifter. leather. nice touches like manual lights leveler, hydraulics for the trunk, intelligent key. big brakes

Mazda 6 2.3l — This is a great car. Not a family car, but a car for the whole experience. Great for the jump from the coupe foe the sedan.

Subtle, But Fun Car — I really do like this car a lot. The steering is very tight and the acceleration is nice.

Awesome — reliable, sporty yet luxerious, great performance for a family saloon. the cars looks are sexy, its very fast, and the awd sysytem has great traction in the snow and tarmac. turbo spool is amazing and really gets the car going. very nice torque curve.

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