Best sports car for moms 40+

This car meets all my needs since I finally "ungrew" the need for a family SUV. Takes me back to my old '76 Datsun 280Z or Saab 900 Turbo... can't be beat for style, handling and options. The V-6 provides lots of power, takes curves like a pro with 18" wheels, sticks to the ground and flies. The GT includes all amenities you could possibly want: leather, heated seats, power everything, sunroof.. navigation, and awesome stereo/speakers, push button start... You name it, this car has it. . Not to mention tons of room in both the back seat for tall adults and a huge trunk. No little grocery-getter: this car meets all my requirements to handle/drive like a sports car, yet still haul a bunch of people if need be. Resectable gas mileage hovers between 19 and 26, depending on style of driving. I bought this car for a steal.. one owner, less than 90K miles that had been serviced regularly and evidently much loved by the previous female driver. Where has it been all my life? Kudos to Mazda!

Great vehicle

by from irvington on August 10, 2017

This is a great upgrade from the mazda 6 2003 that i currently own as well. The update definitely showed improvements in performance and also up to date exterior makes it a very stylish vehicle.

I like this car much more than I thought I would. It is my first Mazda and when I test drove it I immediately loved how comfortable it was. It is spacious and the v6 is no slouch. If you're looking for a stylish, comfortable, reliable, v6 powered car that wont break the bank this is it.

I purchased my 2009 Mazda 6 Grand Touring S used 3 years ago and I absolutely love it. It's sporty,classy & a luxury vehicle all in one. I really should get an all wheel drive vehicle that can handle the Chicago snow/ice better but, I just can't bare to part with this car that I love sooooo much. So,instead, I'm buying new wheels and snow tires for the winter. It will probably be abit of a rough ride but, I don't care!

I purchased this car new in 2009 - 4 cylinder, i-touring. I have been quite happy with it - style, performance, driving fun. I drive 100 easy highway miles per day as a commuter. However, as the card passed 3 years and 80k miles it has been having various quality problems - no, not just wear and tear. Overhead sunglass plastic broke and fell in my lap. Headliner has a rattling noise. This car eats headlight bulbs and they are not easy to change. The keyless entry is hit and miss. WORST of all, the car through a Check Engine Light for the catalytic converter at 80K miles. Apparently very common - you need to spend approx. $1,000 to replace the single cat around 80k. I never owned a car where cats were treated like wear items - eg spark plugs. I wanted to like the car and I guess the transmission and engine are holding up well. Though, I never had so many quality issues with the various Honda's I have owned. Wife's 2006 Odyssey van with 138k is still flawless. 2009 Mazda 112k is a check engine light, squeeky overhead,, light bulb eating car with less then great gas mileage. For me, Mazda was leap of faith. I think I'll be wandering back to Honda during my next purchase when this one wears out. The 2014 Mazda 6 looks pretty but I am going to steer clear based on my 2009 experience.

The mazda 6 I purchased is a very reliable and stylish car. First off the online posting was in correct as it was listed as a 6 speed manual, ended up being a 5 speed automatic. I love the car and all it's aspects, although the 2.5L 4cycl is lacking in some power I am still happy with my the dealership experience and my purchase for the cost.

I have driven the Mazda 6, Camry, Altima, and Charger (3.5L). I chose the Mazda 6 (3.7L) for several reasons. Very good power, nice. Options, fun to drive (tight steering, responsive in curves, balanced braking, and generous seating room. My personal experience was Dodge Charger was under powered (3.5L), Altima research showed less reliability especially with transmissions, and Camry seemed so common looking. Just my viewpoint. Good lhunting!
