Practical fun-2007 Mazda 6 HB
Pros: Hatchback w/fold down seat
Cons: turning radiusI get constant positive comments about what a sharp car. The spoiler (on a 4 dr sedan) just sets the Mazda off. This sleeper practical hatchback car is a work horse. With the fold down seats, I'm never concerned about stopping at Home Depot and buying my 8', yes, eight foot, piece of lumber. What ever it is, it always seem to fit. The V6 is flawless, fun, and snappy. All cars should be made this way.
Pros: Beautiful looks and tight handling, quiet ride.
Cons: My biggest complaint would be the blind spots. After awhile you know where to look but it does take an extra toss of the head just to be safe when backing or crossing lanes.
Advice: Make sure you know where the blindspots are. Otherwise, it's a great ride.I`m in my 50's and find this car goes as fast as I want it when I need it. The engine is very quiet, there are times I can't tell it's running. I just drove it in some slushy snow and never felt it was pulling me in directions I really didn't want to go. It handled wonderful! It's a hot looking car, safety rating is high and the price was very reasonable. I love my Mazda6
Pros: Leather seating
Cons: Being left at the lights
Advice: Drive one before you buyI was disappointed in the acceleration of this car. The turning circle and the brakes are excellent. No zoom zoom though.
Pros: Engine performance for the cost
Cons: trunk liner fit
Advice: If you do not care about having fun driving buy a camryTorque steer is almost non-existent. Burned rubber up to third gear when I stomped hard on the gas. Tires more than 18 inches would be better from a 0-60 standpoint. 110MPH on highway and still accelerating at a good rate. Backed off as the car only has 200 miles on it. Excellent passing for a passenger car. Have a CX-9 and I knew the same engine in the Mazda6 would be a lot of fun and I am not disappointed. Great V6 engine and handling is good but a bit stiff. Disappoined with the fit, especially liner in trunk. Bose speakers and moonroof. Plent of leg room for two teenagers in the back. I am 6' with long legs
Pros: Stylish exterior and great power.
Cons: The back seat could have a little more room.
Advice: Test drive other cars as well, but its hard to say no to the Mazda6I love this car!! Its got a sexy look to it, aggressive power under the hood and drives/handles like a dream. I got a 4 cylinder manual transmission along with all of the bells and whistles and I have never looked back. I have owned this car for a month and I still continue to crack a smile every time I get behind the wheel. The car is extremely responsive and hugs corners like no other car in its price range. I test drove several other cars, but they simply did not match up to what Mazda could offer. Get a Mazda6 if you really want to have fun driving!
Pros: I'am impressed by the smoothness of the ride the car delievers.
Cons: It could have more power.
Advice: Just try to get your best price on the car you can.You get a lot of car and features for the price.. It's a great little car!
Pros: The look
Cons: The transmission and service
Advice: STAY AWAY!! Go for the V6 Altima if you want something comparableBought a 2007 Mazda 6 GT V6 in June 2007.. this car is an absolute piece of garbage. The transmission stinks, the car has no pick up, it jerks on gear changes, the quality and workmanship of the car inside and out is horrendous. The car has been in the shop 5 times in 2 months, I am on my 2nd rim and 3rd tire in the front. I bought the car with 2 defective rims. The service from the dealer in Toronto has been well below par, as has Mazda Canada. I want a refund. I will never buy another Mazda again. A terrible car and a terrible experience!
