Our 2007 Mazda 6 sport has a 4-cylinder engine What I like 1. Exterior Design, I think it's really handsome in my opinion, almost looks like an expensive German car! 2. Sporty handling, fun to drive 3. Seat Comfort, it's firm but supportive and comfortable 4. Radio, Climate switches/controls are very easy to operate 5. Trunk space is big for the size of this car. I can haul many big stuff! 6. Automatic with manual shifting mode What I do NOT like 1. Road noise, tire noise on coarse surface. 2. Firm ride, I can feel every bump I drive over, but maybe it's just me.(I prefer very cushy & quiet rides, like Lexus/Toyota, Mercedes kind of ) 3. Head lights seem darker than I want them to be. 4. Heated seats' automatic shut off feature. Seat heater turns off after using certain minutes and it will not turn back on unless I turn the switch off and wait for about 10 minutes for the seat to cool off. 5. Maintenance Service at Mazda dealership. Their customer service is very mediocre, not impressive at all. They do not even vacuum the floor of the car. Overall, 2007 Mazda 6 is a nice car for money, if you want to drive in style while your budget is limited, I would suggest you to go test drive a Mazda 6 before you decide to buy Toyota Camry or Honda Accord(I actually like Camry but everyone has it so...) It is very reliable.(we bought ours new and now it's almost 50k miles and it never needed any services but regular maintenance services)

After owning two VW's and having the last one in the shop every other week, I wanted to change it up. Bought new and owned 4 yrs. Put 90,000 miles on the car and the only service done on the vehicle within that time period was new tires at 60K and oil changes. Never needed anything else (not even brake pads!). Passed inspection every year - needing nothing! My VW always left inspection with a $600plus bill. The 4 cyl was more than enough power and I had no problem passing on hills, etc (even at 75 mph) - mine was a manual. Car has a huge gas tank for it's size - could easily drive 450 miles on one tank. Low profile tires (while expensive) provided great performance (just not in the snow). Also I owned the hatchback 5-door version, with the back seat down you could pack this thing. My wife would always say (I don't know if we're going to have room)...but we always did. Overall a great car for the money. Paid $18K new and thought it drove nicer and looked sharper than many other cars that cost thousands more. Recently traded the vehicle on a Honda SUV (wanted more space and 4WD from those NE winters).....hated to great rid of it....would highly recommend.

Mostly Zooming

Plush interior if you have the cloth seats. A little hard to keep them spotless, but hey, you can always shell out a couple of hundred for the leather option if you eat in your car (mostly a big no no with me). Dials, vents, and the audio console seem like they're perfectly placed. The only negative i have is, what were they thinking with adding the Ambient temp button? There is another button left blank just under it. Could they possibly use them both for memory seats? (hint hint) Starting the engine and getting to the car to drive mode (yes, it's the auto with 6spd tip-tronic...) is fairly quick, as the car warms up pretty quickly. The marketing team must have actually tested this car before coming up with their famous "zoom zoom" phrase. My friend owns one of those, but with manual , and honestly prefers it's front wheel drive set-up over his dad's '10 Mustang, which he calls "an over-sized boat". Tranny could use a DSG system, which would drastically reduce the shift lag over a standard tip-tronic. I always like to keep the "function over form" motto when it comes to cars, but the 6's design actually helps keep gas mileage in the upper 20mpg on the highway. You can never go wrong with smooth, flowing edges, so pleasing to many eyes. As far as features go, it's got an easy-to-use steering wheel mounted audio/cruise controls. The 6cd changer is nice, but could use an MP3 drive, and an auxiliary port. The Japanese did very well at bringing really well build machines (not just cars) after WWII. Mazda6 is no exception. As long as you stay away from the dealership when it comes to parts for regular maintenance like lube job, brakes, and suspension, your wallet wont take too big a hit. Like with most Japanese-designed cars, the 6 will serve and please you for years, as long as you properly maintain it.

This car is strong

I was driving in the rain (too fast) and spun and rolled the car due to a curb interferance, and was not hurt one bit. I miss my Mazda 6 sooo much. It saved my life.

A Mazda 6 (pre 2009) is the car you buy if you desire a car that both looks good...and is fun. These cars can be found fairly cheap and they are extremely reliable! I have a 2007 i sport and my uncle has a 2005 and both of us haven't had any major issues of any kind. I drive mine rather hard and take turns faster than I probably should, but the car just keeps on kicking. If you're looking for a boring people mover, go buy a Honda or Toyota...but if you want to have fun, look good, and pay less as well...go buy a Mazda. However this car isn't the best for inclement weather. I live in Illinois and the car hydroplanes under heavy rain! However it wasn't horrible in the snow like I thought it would be thanks to decent traction control. They also go through tires quicker than I'd like, but that's the price you pay for taking turns faster than other sedans. I could go on forever, go buy yourself one...you won't regret it.

I resently purchased a Mazda 6i VE (4cyl) and was surprised at the quality of the car. Currently Having a G35('07) and previously an Acura TL('04) in the family, the Mazda is definetly a car that deserves to be taken seriously. It is not a performance powerhouse compared to the 306 HP G35, however the car has more than enough power for daily city driving. When pushed harder, the car responds adequately and feels alive with plenty of passing power (60-90 mph). The suspension is good (Survives NYC potholes) and feels solid overall. Overall small things about this car make it sportier and definetly fun to drive. The Mazda 6 has more shoulder and hip room than the Mazda 3 and the 60/40 folding seats make it possible to fit an enormous amount of cargo. (eg. another car's bumper) ABS, Traction control and the-larger-than-normal Rotors have your back at all times and preserve the Mazda's solid structure. The only thing that I would change about this car is the tires. Michellin's are good but not amazing. With the proper tires this car would probably compare in handling with that of the TL. If you are looking for a car in that price range, definetly go with the Mazda 6i VE. In this segment, It should be #1!

When my 1996 pathfinder se died I was extremely sad...15 years n 196,000 miles of my favorite ride I had ever owned came to an end.... I immediately began shopping for a new /used nissan, after several unhappy test drives decided to do some other make model test drives. Drove a Mazda6 wagon with a v6 at a local Mazda dealer n fell in love... knew at that moment that I was going to search Cars.com until I found a sedan to my liking...I found one in Rhode Island some 300 miles away from home. Put a credit card hold on the vehicle asap, n took the train from NJ to RI, car was in great shape bought it on the spot!!!! I could not be happier n will now shop mazda before looking @ any other vehicle!!!!! I ended up with a 2007 Mazda6 GT... V6... WOW I love my car When I point it any where it goes there... when I stomp on the gas to get me in any spot or onto the highway it just jumps n goes.. averaging about 26 mpg most of my commute is hgwy... sweet ride..comfy all controls easily accessible... do not know why reviewers do not like radio controls..love my 6 CD changer n all am/fm modes easy to navigate, and best of all it looks good while doing it... and it is not a cookie cutter Honda, Toyota, Hyundai... have only seen a few... if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one jump, run do not walk to the sales office!!!!!!!!

My wife and I bought this used with gas prices up and owning two trucks we got tired of paying to fill those up every week. I can't think of anything that I don't like about the car. It rides great and the gas mileage is good, we usually go about 500 miles on a tank of gas and on a recent trip got 36 mpg, even had to go over some mountains!!! I love the manual mode transmission, then engine has plenty of power and it rides as good as cars that cost twice as much. I'm now saying ZOOM-ZOOM!!!
