Pros

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!

Pros

Fun with four doors and a trunk.

Cons

Older models like to rust around the rear wheel arches, V6 owners need be careful of the pre-cats

Want A Fun Car That Will Haul Your Family In Reasonable Comfort And High Style? Here You Go. — Might not be the quickest car, but it does everything you'd ever want it to. Handling is absolutely excellent for a family sedan, forward thrust is more than adequate despite mine being equipped with an automatic transmission, and it has yet to break anything in 54000 miles. Fuel economy is somewhat sub-par for a 4cyl however, at 22-24mpg depending on driving habits given an even mix of city/highway.

Mazda 6 Sport 2.5 — peformance good, handling good, fuel comsumption not so good. smooth engine, no rattles, brakes could do with a bit more oomph, there ok but not as good as a new mondeo. overall although i didint choose the car its a worthy contender in the class. its not a class beater but it holds its own and if you dont want to join the masses and be an individual then its ideal

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.

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.

Good Vaklue For Money But Not For Long Journeys — Car is well speced up, but seats are not very comftable after about a hour and give back ache, bluetooth carkit cannot be heard at the other end once moving, large boot and very spacey, could do with more power only 170 bhp from a 2.5
