Pros: Smooth ride,tight handling,easy to use buttons and dials
Cons: No ABS on 6i model, no auto door locks
Advice: test drive,compare,price shop and BUY!with 5 spd. it 's got plenty of power. Great ride,handling, and cornering! Got my 2003 in speed yellow...it does turn heads...WAY TO GO MAZDA!!!
Pros: Exterior looks and interior comfort
Cons: Nothing yet!
Advice: Test drive both the 6 cylinder and 4 cylinder versions.Test drove both the 4cyl and 6cyl. Loved the handling and that the engine was so quiet! The 6cyl had a little bit rougher of a ride, but I didn't see enough of a difference between the 4 and the 6 to sacrifice the miles per gallon difference. I was also very impressed with all of the safety features offered in this model. Brought home the 4 cylinder version and am continually impressed with the handling and comfort quotients. The car has surprising 'get up and go.' The styling is so fun and sporty! I LOVE DRIVING THIS CAR!!! Also thought about the Camry and Accord, but the Mazda6 gives you so many extras for the money and the car is FUN as opposed to BORING!!!!
Pros: Headlights...they are very different from the plain ones on the accord.
Cons: I dont paticularly care for the antenna on the back.
Advice: Buy it....everywhere I go people ask what kind of car it is....not like the Accord that EVERYONE is buying.Very comfortable car to drive in. The car is very quiet and handles absolutely PERFECT!! I test drove the Accord and The 6 and chose the 6!!
