Time To Time I Get The Urge For Something Else, But I Simply Can't. For The Price, This Is It. — Performance: I often forget how capable the car is. Only until I drive someone else's car, do I realize that the MS6 is incredibly stable at high speeds, has loads of grip, and is a perfect balance between performance and comfort. The only drawback, it's weight, which means one thing, MORE POWER! Build Quality: No issues other than the clutch replacement in warranty, and the good ol smoking turbo. YAY! Appearance: Perfect. I love the way this car looks. In another 3 years, when I get back to Washington, she will look even better against the green backdrop of the Northwest. Cost of Ownership: 22 mpg is alright on premium fuel for the performance. Fun factor: I drive it like a grandma most of the time. Once I perform some more upgrades, I will really run her.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Stable, Speed, Grip

Cons: Weight

For The Price No Other Car Even Comes Close To Comparing To This Car. —

Performance - Car drives and handles great. Plenty of power. AWD helps slippery situations. Also this car stops on the dime. 12.5" rotors front and rear. I have added hawk racing brake pads. The car handles pretty good. I have it dropped on tein springs. The ride isnt too stiff at all and thats the downside of its handling. There is a lot of un-needed body roll when pushing it hard through turns. Nothing a stiffer coilover setup wont take care of. The clutch in this car is very catchy and takes patience everytime you drive it. Also the gear box is rather notchy. Build quality - Average. Lots of queaks and rattles inside and outside the car. I do have all solid and added motor mounts. The balance shaft has been removed from the bottom of the motor. This added a lot of vibs as well. Idle had to be increase to 1100 to counter act this. Appearance - Exterior looks great. I added a few exterior mods to the outside. Interior is great. Fit and fiinish is nice. Seats are pretty comfortable. Also has adjustable steering wheel. Cost of ownership - Not too bad. just normal matienance. I change the oil early with amsoil 5w-40 synthetic. Started it early at 30k miles. Gas mileage is 19-21mpg depending on driving habbits. I have only been to the dealer a few times. Once was for the a/c compressor pulley going bad. Once for a bent rear axle. My last visit was for the clutch tsb which was replaced for free under warranty. Clutch is a lot smoother. Fun factor - The car is a blast to drive. It acts just like a normal car in every day driving. But as soon as you want to push it hard it gets excited.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, practical, and fast.

Cons: Stiff clutch if its a early 06 model. The turbos are known to go bad and smoke.

Balanced, In Every Way. — Ridiculous performance. Even with AWD and dynamic stability control it still wants to break traction and can give a little bit of power oversteer in the wet. Appearance? Well these things are always subjective, but I think it's sex on wheels. Can quite easily get over 500km out of the 65Lt tank, but when you start putting your foot down and using all the 190kw it can chew the juice pretty quick. Fun to drive? Whadda you reckon? It's the perfect balance of luxury and performance and will give a LOT of cars a run for their money.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing, except maybe the cost of fuel, if you're a lead foot.

Awd, 6 Speed & Turbo — Great family car with BOOST, Classy & sporty styling. The AWD 6 speed drivetrain makes for a great platform along side the 2.3 DIZI Turbo powerplant. Decent aftermarket support & plently of mid level performance capabilities. Good handling car out the box, Great interior layout.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: very fun car

Cons: Cost

Mazdaspeed 6 Thumbs Up :) — I love this car, it's very well built. Very powerful, 280 horses and doesnt feel like it, although it does need better brakes, and tires dont last very long either if u use it as a daily driver. But other than that it's great :)

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

Pros: Fast, fun to drive, very attractive car

Cons: KILLS tires, and needs better brakes (i cant believe it doesnt come with brembos!!)

Mazdaspeed6 — Best car I have ever owned. Never had an issue with quality or any engine problems. The turbo 2.3L goes with the 6-speed transmission and AWD very well. This car never misses a beat and I would not rather have any other car on earth. Mazdaspeed6, the most fun car you will ever own.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast Acceleration, 27mpg mixed city/highway driving, AWD confidence

Cons: NONE!

Grade-a For Awesome — I like the acceleration, the handling, and the overall look of this car. Lowered with a cat back sounds real nice. ECU wakes this thing up in the upper RPM's The blow off valve is a nice gimmic also. Handles wake up with a good set of coilovers. The Front mount intercooler is a must

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

Pros: Fun

Cons: part availability

My Zoom-zoom! — No dislikes here except it could have more horsepower if they would have turboed the 3.0L instead of the 2.3L! This car is a blast to drive, (so far no speeding tickets, knock on wood.) Interior could have been a little more luxorious but its a perfect sleeper car!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: None!
