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: 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!!
Pros: Fun to drive
Cons: Rear seat fold-down releases in trunk-only should be trunk-and-inside cabin.
Advice: Show internet for best price and BUY.Wonderful car... we bought the 4 cyl, 5sp manual. High 'fun to drive' quotient. The V6 was even more fun, but not worth the mileage penalty for a daily driver. Fit and finish are excellent and the styling speaks for itself. This is a sport sedan, not a generic (geriatric?) grocery-getter. Looked at the Accord, but that car has no character - it's vanilla pudding (doesn't offend, but isn't going to give you an arm-pumping OH, YEAH! experience either) next to the M6.
Pros: Smooth ride
Advice: Buy 2Great handling and power. Even the 4 cylinder feels like a 6 it's so powerful.
Pros: haha don't see one, guess exterior looks
Cons: performance and feel of the car
Advice: Look elsewhere, test drive the Accord Coupe, you'll see the difference.Did not like the car at all. No low-end power, as a matter of fact, once the power actually comes on in this car, the car is almost redlining. As for the looks, the car felt very cheap to sit in and drive. All of the dials for the car such as the radio and A/C seemed cheap and very difficult to work for an everyday driver. Definitely not worth it for the price, even if the car was 10 grand less I probably still wouldnt consider it after the test drive, very very dissapointed
Pros: Steering wheel controls, A/T shifter
Cons: The way transmission shifts back to first when I come to a stop.
Advice: BUY THE V-6WOW!~ I took my current car to the dealer to get fixed, because the transmission. My loaner car is a Mazda6i. I am sooo impressed a the pickup and go of the I4. Driving in and out of Philadelphia I took the car to the max. From driving this loaner I am going to the Mazda dealer and looking at a V-6. It is a blast. Mazda is back from past with the all new 6!
Cons: Fabric center arm rest
Advice: Save this test drive for last, then you won;t have a problem deciding which car to buy.I really enjoyed this car. I drove the Accord, Altima, and Camry before I drove the 6. All of the others were fairly dependable Jap cars with typical Jap features. The 6 was a break from the ordinary, with firm interior upholstery, slot car like handling, decent road noise supression, and lots of nice little things. I purchased my 6 in May 2003, and love every minute of it. I like the fact that there are still not too many on the road and most people around are always saying 'what kind of car is that?'. I think that I am personally responsible for an additional sale of 7 more of these little cruisers. For now, I have a very unique auto and am proud of it. PS: the Mazda service people are just great!!!
Cons: No room at the back passenger
Advice: Its best sports sedanAs per my friends advice, i took mazda 6 for test drive, and i was amazed with the performance, interior and style. I love the steering wheel mounted Radio/CD controls. It was difficult to find my color metallic steel grey with options, I could not wait to Zoom Zoom .. So i bought the Silver.
