Good Car With Decent Performance — It has decent performance from its 212hp V6. It looks great! Build quality is good despite being built in the U.S. The Mazda6 Sport is very fun to drive, with the Pirelli Nero M+S tires, alot of fun to drive.

Owning A Mazda 6 — This is my second Mazda 6, they have both been very reliable company Cars. The last one only needed 2 sidelight bulbs replaced in 93,000 miles. The latest model is easier on diesel but has more power. Fun to drive as well.

General Great Car. — This is a great personal car. It sits 4 comfortable, however, it is not good for a family as it's interior space is limited, especially in the rear seating area. It has plenty of options and driving it is fun. It hugs the road and has tight steering and a very stable feel even around tight curves. As a personal car or for even 2 people it is great, fun to drive and sexy looking. Plenty of Mazda zoom.

Convenience And Economical — Had little expenses other than regular maintenance. It performed well and always felt in control of the driving. If you need a spacious roomy vehicle with good mileage this is one to consider. Trunk area has plenty of room for groceries, cargo, and luggages.

Great Medium Size Wagon. — This car is an awesome car to drive for a station wagon, responsive in sports mode gear shift, braking excellent and handles very well. Quality of finish is very good and it has no squeaks or rattles and has not had any mechanical repairs but some body repairs from minor accidents. This car looks good both inside and out, styling is excellent. Cost of ownership if acceptable as long as you don't take it to a Mazda dealership for services. This is a fun car to own and drive, mine is a company car but if I were to buy a car it would be my first choice.

Bring It Back! — A sporty car in sheep's clothing! The only way to tell it's a hatchback is the rear wiper. Don't let the 4 cylinder fool you - it's more than enough oomph for most things. Too bad this was the last year that Mazda made it. They really should bring it back.

A Fun Mid-sized Car Among A Boring Segment — A fun mid-sized car among a boring segment The Mazda 6 is one of my favourite cars to drive at work. For a car of its size it is surprisingly fun since most of its competitors are very serious cars. Even with a 4-cylinder engine the Mazda 6 is reasonably quick. The engine is a bit noisy on its first 2 gears, once its in 3rd and higher it settles down. Handling on the 6 is very good, although its not as good as a 3. The interior of the 6 is reasonably spacious but somewhat small compared to its competitors. For most people the base 6 is fully loaded. Interior colours are also limited to black or beige, beige being only available to 6s with beige exteriors. The key is a neat switchblade design. The cloth seats given are pretty comfortable. The Mazda 6 is a very easy car to like, modest looking and in my opinion a proper mid-sized car while other mid-size cars are much too large. The only thing I could think of improving it is...make it AWD or RWD.

Fun to drive fast, nicely arranged interior and all the amenities are great

Cons

The auto tranny seems to be a bit rough, and the cruise control on
mazda's tends to get out of control going up hills

Very Nice For Price Range — I've had this car for about 2 months, and I really love it. It has a few quirks, which I've listed in the cons section but over all I am enjoying it. I chose the model with the tan leather interior, and I'm very happy with that as well. Mazda's tend to have limited choices for interiors, either dark or light, which is too light. The leather option is nice when you have kids, because you simply wipe up spills instead of having stains on your fabric. The ride is very smooth, as compared to the mazda 3 which I previously owned, and the car has a heavier, sturdier feel to it. I have high performance tires on this car, so it handles even better on corners, etc than with stock tires. The motor in mine might be a little underpowered for the car, but I chose it based on fuel economy. I still have no problem getting around people on the highways lickety brindle!
