Happy Zoom-zoomer — Overall a great driving car. Grey exterior with a grey leather interior. If I'd waited one model year it would have had a 6 speed, but the 5 speed is fine. Lots of storage room, especially with the rear seats folded flat.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: As it's a wagon, and grey at that, it's pretty stealthy!

Cons: Fuel mileage could be better.

Overall A Very Nice Car — I have a inline 4-cylinder, it has enough bite to satisfy the everyday driver and goes a little ways towards the "need for speed" drivers. It has excellent braking and handling in all situations. No build quality issues on any part of the car. There is little or no maintenance other than the usual (oil changes/ tire rotation). Very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very enjoyable ride

Cons: Not enough power, if looking to burn serius rubber

Not Bad If U Want Something That Reliable — not good on petrol when at high speeds the handling is good and the sound of the radio is good not very fast good brakes never had to get any repairs done to it looks kinda sporty for a family car inside is notting special its nt as fun as my lancer was also is good safety wise coz of all the airbags and ave had a few near misses and i was able to stir it at the last second without losing control i think theres some system in it that help with having to turn shapely

Primary Use: Family transportation

Overall A Good Car To Be Had. —

Overall the Mazda6 sport sedan is a good car to be had. Handling is good considering it's a FWD with around 220bhp (with 3.0 liter V6). Acceleration isn't super quick, and you don't have much in the throw into the back of your seat torque (which could be how they remedied most of the torque steer). Though while you accelerate, it doesn't have a bad exhaust note. Braking is good enough for normal braking conditions in normal everyday driving conditions. Though a simple upgrade to aftermarket performance brake pads and even rotars would make that an easy fix. Gas mileage isn't bad either. 29 hwy is respectable in a V6. Only main gripe with the car is that sometimes it seems the exterior could have a bit more styling. It does have a different factory body kit from the 4 cylinder version so you can differentiate between the 4 and 6 cylinders, but the V6 body kit isn't quite as aggresive as, say, the Speed6. Though it's not an ugly car by any means. Interior is another story. It does have a marvelous interior. Most of the controls are very ergonomic (a/c, radio) and simple to use and many places for storage from sunglasses, middle of the dash (if not Sat Nav), arm rest and the usual suspects you find in most other cars. My car has the leather seats which aren't the greatest to be honest, but still nice. Though heated seats only get luke warm. Bose system is nice as well to have and love the convenience of having the in dash 6 disc changer. Maintenance has been pretty simple thus far (only have about 60,000 miles on it) Mostly just the usual oil change, tire rotation type stuff. Though now I need a new thermostat. Build quality overall is good. Not much in the way of rattles or squeaks or anything along those lines. Interior seems like it's good quality despite being mostly plastic. Overall a good, solid car to own. Not quite a Honda in quality, but still alot of fun to drive. Good performance, decent looks, good cost of ownership, and the "fun factor" of course.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drives well, great handling for a FWD with 220bhp.

Cons: Nothing really, though the looks department could be bumped a bit.

Mazda 6 Sport Td Hatch — Its the hatchback. Its fab to drive,ecomonical, loads of space in boot, 5 adults in comfort, handles well and good fun. Its done miles and is still in lovely condition, so reliable. Stereo needs to be better and some of the trim is a bit plasticky

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice colour! Cheap to run, fun to drive, sexy

Cons: Stereo could be better (radio reception poor/CD great)

A Pleasure To Own... — Great Car! A little annoying that the CD stacker has an intermittent fault (particularly during long drives) and has no music port for iPod etc.... aargh! Otherwise is brilliant. My favourite car so far! Mazda - they think! I love all the clever little storage places...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: If you want to avoid ME driving home after night shift!

Cons: If I'm driving home following a night shift!!!

I Got Rid Of It With No Regrets — Slow ass car. 4-cylinder is fuel efficient but not so much fun to drive. It's good for your mom or dad who obey speed limits. Well, I don't. When you want to even pass and change lines you just feel that resistance. I bought it because I liked that color, plus i couldn't drive a stick shift, that's why i ended up with automatic

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel efficent

Cons: cloth beige seats

05' Mazda6i — This is a really good car for the wife or teen but if you want speed and power this really lacks in those categories. It really isn't much to upkeep and it still is fun to drive but i need more power.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great gas mileage

Cons: Not fast enough

Amazing — Great fun to drive and the 2L diesel is solid and is a relaxing drive when you're in that sort of mood or let the turbo kick in for a sudden wooosh. Torque is crazy and is easy to wheel spin if you turn traction control off

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

Pros: Fast big reliable car

Cons: DIffercult to park as it is so long and wide - Also instant trip computer is in L/100M not MPG!
