An Almost Perfect Car- FOR THE PRICE
Source: MSN Autos

...If you hated it that much, don't buy it. Those things have not changed (performance would have slight gains actually) from when you test drove it. Overall: I like it. 12,000 trouble free miles in almost 1 year of ownership. by the way, the manual 6 will beat an automatic Altima any day in a flat out race (i know apples to oranges) and would drive circles around any Altima in a road course because of the high end power and superior handling charecteristics (i.e. lack of body roll and more confidence inspiring feel around corners) If you want luxury then pay $4000 more and go for the Altima...

2012 Mazda6

..."My final 2 choices were the Mazda6 and Honda Accord-SE.
Comperably equiped, the Mazda 6 initially was less expensive. Look at estimated 5 year costs to see if you can make a deal to ensure lowest longer term costs as well...

The car for tall people.

...I'm 6'5 and finding a comfortable car without breaking the bank is quite a feat.
But here it is, the Mazda6. Plenty of room, great price and the the Mazda6 is a blast to drive!
It hugs the corners and accelerates quickly for entering the freeway.
Telescoping steering wheel and height adjusting seat makes it a very comfortable ride for long trips and the way the windows are designed,
one really gets a beautiful, unobstructed veiw of the outside world. I gave it a 4 in the performance because it's a bit sluggish starting off at a light but makes it up once out of 1st gear...

Not a good used car purchase

...The problem was the TCS and also the transmission. The car would brake and not accelerate for no apparent reason. She would have to pull off of the road, turn the car off and restart it. The dealer had a 30 day warranty, and tried to fix the problem unsuccessfully. Luckily the registration took awhile to go through because it was in another state and we were able to turn the car back in and put the money toward another vehicle. I would not recommend the 2003 Mazda 6. I think later model years for the Mazda 6 are more reliable."...

Best bet for the money

..."I really enjoy the Madza 6. Even though I had not driven a manual transmission in over 5 years, I was able to quickly maneuver the 6 speed.
I feel that this car performs great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to purchase a new car."...

Everything I expected.

..."What can I say? Great handling, comfort for 5, elegant interior and very nimble!!The seats have nice cloth and they are very firm.Also the brakes are great and overall this car was a great buy."...

Fun sports sedan!

...This was the first car I purchased myself. I'm the second owner of an '06 Mazda6.
In regard to appearance, this car is definitely "sexy", especially in the Dark Cherry color I have.
I drove an '03 Toyota Camry before this Mazda6 and I can assure you, the Mazda6 is sportier, smaller, and more fun to drive.
I haven't had any serious issues with the vehicle, besides the routine maintenance (oil change, tires,).
I had one mechanical problem when I first bought the car but it was under warranty so no cost to me.
The speed and handling of this vehicle is up to par; it...

...I purchased this car in 03 and now have 28,000 miles on the vehicle. The problems started at 4,500 miles and I have had the clutch pad and flywheel replaced 3X and now going to be a 4th. The dealers nor mazda admit to having had any issues, but if you look at all the sites for mazda clubs you will see clutch problems on many of the cars from 03-05. Mazda is not taking this problem seriously, but average cost of out of warranty repair is $1,600.00. Warranty loses coverage on parts at 12,000 unless a new part is added and then it extends the warranty another 12,000 miles. Mazda needs to take...

Mazda 6s - Revisited after 8 months

...More horsepower is not needed. The special illuminescent guages should also be standard, not requiring the leather package. Once you see the guages (have it my Altima) - it is a terrific look. Overall: One of the best cars I have ever driven - especially at this price. My 2005 Altima 3.5 SL has more Umph when accelerating, but the Mazda seems stuck to the road. The handling and braking is outstanding for a family sedan, for any car for that matter. This highly recommended automobile. CNBC auto reviews on cable TV have highly touted the Mazda 6 and Mazda 3 - They are Right. Over the course of...

Users who viewed this car also viewed:
2012 Honda Accord Sedan
Though the 2012 Honda Accord now has one of the more dated four-door sedan designs--and Bluetooth connectivity remains hard to get--its comfortable interior and perky, refined performance hit the sweet spot for families.
2012 Hyundai Sonata
After more than a decade on the market, the latest Hyundai Sonata's an overnight success--thanks to great gas mileage, grabby styling, and exceptional value for the dollar.
2012 Kia Optima
The basics don't have to be boring: the 2012 Kia Optima evades design and driving boredom with suave looks, good performance and great gas mileage and features.
2012 Nissan Altima
The 2012 Nissan Altima isn't as roomy as the newest mid-offerings, but as a coupe or as a sedan, it's one of the best-looking and most sporty mid-sizers.
2012 Toyota Camry
The redesigned 2012 Toyota Camry remains the most conservative-looking pick among mid-size sedans, but if you want comfort, value, and frugality above all else, it's probably just your style.
