Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Radio, spoiler, clean look
Cons: lack of power, turn radiusI bought it used when it was a year old. I bought because it met my needs but never gave it much thought about the details. Everyone who gets in asks what it is because they're so impressed with the dash layout. My only complaints are that it needs more power (I have the 4 cyl) and the turn radius is horrible - I have to be careful going through drive-thrus. I think when I trade up next time I will either get another 6 or maybe a 7 if I decide on a small SUV. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend.
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: 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: trans engine combination nearly perfect combination
Cons: quality of weatherstrip and door seals
Advice: buy if economy/ performance balance desiredHave just short of 5000 miles on a 2007 4 cyl automatic. Have been getting 26 mpg plus around town. Only real dissatisfaction comes with wind noise - a whistle caused by inadequate seal of the outside mirror bezel and a poor design and seal to the windshield header. Whistle now corrected with additional sealing, but still too much noise because flow past windshield header interupted by deep trough design. Also whistle from high speed heater blower corrected by proper sealing of the cabin filter element.
Pros: Air conditionning. It cools down the car really fast.
Cons: Masda sells it as a car the same size as the Camry or Altima. It is a lie.
Advice: If you want a fun driving experianceThis car is fun to drive because it handles well in the corners and zips around town with ease. It is an in between size and perfect for those who find the civic too small and the Altima a bit too large.
