Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2009 Mazda MAZDA6?
I like the looks. It is almost sexy looking. I have a black V6 with cream/tan interior. It is almost as fast as my 98 Trans Am (my years of youthful indiscretions), but it easily holds five in very good comfort. It is quiet even under strong acceleration. In town I get about 21 and on the road about 27 (in Texas I do a lot of driving at 80 which is legal on my West Texas roads). I love the Bose stereo, the keyless ignition and excellent handling.
Mazda6 is not a four door sports car, but it is close enough. Did I mention it was quiet at all speeds? It is a great car for in town, on interstates, but it shines on twisty two lanes in the Hill Country of Texas. I like the Sirius radio, moon roof and cool night dash lights.
Cons: How would you improve your 2009 Mazda MAZDA6?
It probably will not have the resale value of a Camry or Honda. Improvements? Well I would like a compass built in as is the temp gage.
2009 Mazda MAZDA6 Review:
I have had two earlier Mazda cars, a 626 and a Mx6. My daughter had a Miata. The current Mazda 6S is a combination of the power of my 1998 Trans Am and the ride and comfort of my best friend's Camry. My mileage has been better than the sticker figure. I get about 25 on the road at 80 and 30 at 65. In town I get about 22 on city and freeway. My friends just love the style inside and out. It is quiet; it is real quiet even at speed. The 6 speed is very smooth and makes seamless shifts. The manual mode is fun, but I just leave it in auto mode 95%+ of the time. If you want vanilla or strawberry, buy a Camry or Accord. Good cars. If you want chili pepper performs with the sweet taste of chocolate, but the Mazda 6 S model with 272 horses and 6 speeds. Also, get the Bose system and Sirius radio. Good times, good drives and reliability. Cool.
