To me, everything

could have a higher top speed and a little better gas mileage.

A Fan Favorite — Performance - has great acceleration for a four banger. But it has low top speed for a car in its class. great build quality. Loooove the styling of the appeareance. Very fun to drive, and great for those windy mountain roads. Pretty decent gas mileage, when it's driven appropriately for fuel economy.

Family Has The Space And Daddy Has The Pace! — Bought a 2007 sport wagon a couple of months ago. Upgraded from a Focus sedan to the big family 6. When I started looking for a new/used car I didn't have the 6 in mind, in fact I was looking for a ford focus wagon. I'm very glad I found the 6 wagon! It is costlier to run, but it feels and looks like such a better car...(my Dad actually congratulated me on finally buting a "real" car|) The 6 cyl ford lump is a PIG on gas. Ok so not all the fault lies with the engne. The car asks do be driven quickly, handling tight curves and momentum shifts with aplomb. I really enjoy driving alone in this car. The family has all the space they need as well, even the dog! Although I keep the big furry critter's rides to a minimum as I have the tan cloth interior/black dash and the tan stains very easily. I could have chosen a darker colour scheme but the tan/black combo feels special. Very impressed with the vehicle so far... reliability??? we'll see. If you love driving & can afford the gas, I would reccomend this car! Update April 2012, Back brakes were sticking, cailipers seized, replaced at dealership. Front brake pads will need replacing in 2 months or so. Since switching to the summer tires i have noticed what could only be described as sensitivity to road crown angles, or slopes if you like. Always wants to pull gently in the direction of the angle. When you find a truly flat road, you sure know it. Might have something to do wit the tires being nearly finished, (michelins) but really noticable none the less. Will be looking for a new set of tires for next year. Can;t decide on what brand yet... choices choices.. Anyway still enjoying the 6 wagon. Now let's see if we can improve the fuel economy! Update November 2012, no repairs since last update. Car is now on winter tires and the ride is better for it. probably due to the existing summer tires being finished. Fuel economy improves when I "force" the transmission into a higher gear when driving at in town speeds. Thought I'd bee using the manual shift for the sport angle not the fuel economy one, but the transmission seems to like to stick to a lower gear when a higher one is available. Still loving the car, June 2013... RUST!!! It was always rumoured that Mazda had terrible rust issues well, I'm starting to see it in my 6. Under the rear driver's side wheel well and at the bottom of the back hatch door. Frustrating to say the least. I have sprayed it with anti-rust (Krown) and that was before I noticed therust. Mazda Canada basically laughed at me, even thoughthe car was just out of it's warranty (1 month). Now I'm going to have to find $$$ for the repairs, done properly... I have switched over to new summer tires and what a difference, that touchy steeriing feel has all but dissapeared. Very satisfied with teh car, just the rust is scaring the heck out of me...

Cons

Lack of power for what's advertised on a V6

More About The 2lo 6 — This is my latest purchase, Mazda6 GT V6 2007. This car comes fully loaded with BOSE system, 6 CD changer in dash, leather interior, heated seats / mirrors name it all, climatronic climate control,electronic tinted rear view mirror and more. The V6 is ok, far from being a quick V6 when you compare with the competition and quite a gas guzzler. Overall it's ok to drive, very smooth. I owned a 2006 Mazda3 GT just before and I got this 6 as an upgrade, also knowing that Mazda's are very reliable cars. They are fun to drive and they offer a lot of options for what you pay. Repair wise, aside from a cracked oil pan from being low ... can't say nothing. The added mods are as follow : Full TEIN basic coilover kit, CF eyelids, wingless, shaved door moldings, tinted windows, ORION sound system, 18 inch Enkei LS/5 with 215/40/18 akina ST-09 tires now changed, 6000K front HID with JDM yellow fog lights, brand new JDM front lip ( at the paint shop ) I also had clear sidemarkers, full Magnaflow dual catback but had to remove them cause of tickets and stupid MTL laws. That's about it for my 2LO Mazda6.

Drives very well and looks sporty

Cons

wish the acceleration was faster in the automatic setting

45

Sweet 6 — Handles extremely well on the highway! The acceleration is descent in the automatic, but much better in the manuel trans. from the tech-tronic transmission. Gas is the best because its a 4-cyclinder. Lots of space for comfort in the car.

Brianna's Car — I have a Mazda 6 and I absolutely love it. I have the more pricer version which includes scotch guarded seats, V6 engine, and many many more other features. This car has amazing performance. The body style is sleek and gorgeous. When you wax it, it makes it look smooth as a bullet. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants good quality, performance, and a gorgeous apperance.

Pros

The MAZDA6 is a great looking car. It's perfect for someone who likes a sporty look yet needs to be practicle. The intererior is well laid out and comfortable. There is plenty of leg room in the back seat. The car handles well in all conditions.

Cons

If your looking for power than this is not the car for you. Although the 2.3L 4cyl engine has good passing power, your not going to be smoking your tires off the starting line.

Very Enjoyable Car That Has Been As Dependable As A Car Can Possibly Be. No Regrets Owning This Car! — I can honestly say there is nothing I dislike about this car. For someone with a family having a sports car is not always practicle. I wanted something sporty. The MAZDA6 delivered on everything I wanted; sporty, reliable, afforable, comfortable, good on gas. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Excellent handling, firm yet comfortable ride

Cons

Still One Of The Better Midsize Sedan Buys — It's a great sports sedan overall! Acceleration with the 4-cylinder model isn't brisk, but it is still more than adequate in traffic. Braking and handling are excellent. Although there are many great choices in this class, I still think the styling of the first-generation 6 holds its own against competitors. The build quality is solid overall, albeit with a few fit and finish concerns. Overall, it is a very fun-to-drive and economical sports sedan, and after two years of ownership, I'm still very happy with it!

Pros

Space, and it's not a family van!

Cons

Depreciation is faster then other cars. Don’t buy it if you don’t plan to keep it for many years.

55

Good Family Hauler — I bought the Mazda Sportwagon (it's a station wagon!) because I needed the space for an active family of four and didn't want a SUV or family van. the only choices was from Mazda or Volkwagen. I was replacing my VW passat which had died on me (timing belt snaped). I steered away from VW Passat wagon because I was tired of paying premium for parts (VW parts are significantly more money, but I’m not reviewing the Passat here). I have owned the Mazda for two years now (50km to date). The Sportwagon has all the space we need. We are an outdoors family, and the wagon combined with a Thule box provides plenty of room for our needs. Performance - This is my first automatic transmission car and I miss the immediate response of a stick, however the car does have good acceleration (it’s a Ford 3L V6), and it does have a manual mode (just don't forget it’s in manual mode or you might find yourself red lining on a highway on-ramp and the automatic engine kill engaging). Handling is acceptable, nothing exciting here. The GT package includeds 18” wheels which help with cornering, but also make for a rough ride. The car also has a tendency to follow ruts in the road. You need to be vigilant that it does not drift left or right. Build quality to date has been good. Some minor squeaks from the front dash in cold weather, but these go away once the car’s warmed up. The seatbelts sometimes squeak rubbing against the non-leather parts of the “leather surfaces” seats. The rear brake assembly was replaced (under warrantee) after the first year, and the horn shorted out after driving in heavy rain (again replaced under warrantee). Finally, the steering column was lubricated after complaints it was making knocking noises, which again was repaired under warrantee (A recall I was unaware of, or was this a secret warrantee). Cost of ownership has been all wear and tear items to date. Rear brakes and rotors were replaced at 48km. Appearance – The car looks great. I often get complements. Comfort – Seats are big and comfortable. There’s room for five without complaints. The center rear seat does not have a head rest, which is a concern, and we try to limit the use of the seat if possible (Mazda - Why not give equal safety to all seating positions?) Fun Factor – None to whoop about. The car’s a good family hauler, with some style and zip.

I Love My Lil Mazda 6 — Great Every day driver!!! Really enjoy driving it... I Bought it over a year ago and have had no problems since...sticker price was 21K, but was able to get it down to 16,500. For a sedan I find fun to drive, picks up well, no problems with the brake...love the low-profile tires it came with! And I've gotten 26-27 miles to the gallon around town.

Pros

Everything... The look of a luxury car in the inside but the look of a sporty car on the outside. Esp. with my upgrades (shark fin and spoiler)

Cons

The gas. More than $50 to fill up. City driving you get about 390 miles and highway driving about 420 miles. Not THAT bad!

This Car Is Awesome! — Drives great! Great acceleration, handling, and braking! Very spacious. A lot of room in the car and trunk!
