Pros: Performance, comfort, overall feel.
Cons: Cabin is slightly noisy.Mazdaspeed did a fantastic job with the 6. It is a comfortable commuter that is easy to manage in traffic, but is also a huge amount of fun whenever you need some zoom zoom. The driving position is great, the handling is outstanding and it always feels solid, even when pushed hard. The clutch and 6-speed manual are superb and the car has had zero problems in almost 50K miles. It is simply the best car I've ever driven when going from 50-80 (ie. passing). The main drawbacks to this car is the somewhat noisy cabin when on the highway and the gas mileage, which has seldom exceeded 23 or 24 mpg. Still awesome given the performance.
Pros: stability controlI loved it, served me well, had a few problems with service and the brakes but other than that, car was overall a great little car.
Pros: Steering wheel controls for for radio unit
Cons: Only issue is excessive road noise and low AC outputThis has been a great car for me. 57K on it and no real repairs other than oil & filter etc...Thank goodness it does not have the ugly face the new 2011 style has. Shame to ruin a great car with such an ugly look!
Its an ok car. It will get u from a to b. And its dependable. If u keep up with the car it'll last long.
Just right for a commuter car.
great handling-needs more h.p.
Cons: The way it sucks gas around town, you'd expect more power.Great car...gas mileage could be better. The dealers for Mazdas are complete scumbags.It's why you don't see more of them on the road. I'd never even think of buying a new one.
Pros: wonderful steering
Cons: tires wore out fastThis is the most drivable fun car I have ever had. Pervious cars were Fords and Hondas. I use a stick and love to drive I am a young 73. Alas, the 2010 is ugly in front and a bit bigger. Am waiting for a remake.
