Being 6'4" it is hard to find a comfortable car. The Mazda 6 meets this requirement. I have head room, leg room, and do NOT feel cramped. The dual AC zone allows the wife to go into lizard mode and leave my side alone. This alone was worth the purchase!


Beautiful new car

I recently bought this car and it has met every need. It's sleek, stylish and the interior has just about everything. It handles well and is also great on gas.



Smooth, comfortable and quiet. Good mileage. Fun to drive. Love the sunroof and Bose stereo system. Love the blind spot monitor feature. I recommend this car.


Enjoyable driving, comfort, style

Responsive handling and performance. Fun to drive. Has selectable Sport mode which stiffens ride and accelerates gear changes. Good sound system. rear seat room is good. Comfortable seats and interior. Nice fit and finish inside and out. Good rear view camera (which is needed because rear window view is dark and limited). Good reliability. Minor quibbles: standup digital monitor is distracting; open hood and open gas tank cover levers are hard to find and somewhat hard to reach. An overall good value.


Most comfortable ride we have owned

This is one nice car. Rides sooooo well plus decent mileage. Love all of the GT features including the Mazda Radar range which automatically slows down while on cruise if someone inform pulls out without looking. Car is in great shape. No accidents. Awesome paint job. Been garage kept since day 1.Florida car


Beautiful car inside and out, no issues at all.

This car is the most reliable thing I've owned since wd-40. Only caveat is the acceleration on the highway. But we're in an economic family sedan so beggars can't be choosers with this.


Lovin’ the MPG

Upgraded from a smaller economy car. Enjoying the larger passenger space and comfortable ride. Cabin is way quieter than my former ‘11 Ford Fiesta. Great gas milage for a mid-sized sedan. Better value for the money compared to Toyota / Honda. The infotainment controls are a bit confusing and take some getting used to. Hoping for long-term reliability as I keep my cars 6+ years.


SO glad I bought it

I did not need a new car when I bought my 6, but while having my car serviced at my local Mazda dealer, they gave me a Mazda6 as a complimentary loaner and I was smitten. 3 years and around 36K miles later, I'm still loving it. The Mazda6 is a moderately priced mid-sized sedan that feels and acts like it's more expensive. The handling is great, and the naturally-aspirated four-cylinder motor has plenty of power, while returning excellent fuel economy for the segment. I'm sure the new turbo models are great, but I'm very pleased with the "base" engine's performance. Reliability has been excellent, as well. Granted, my car is not that old or been driven a tremendous number of miles, but it has required nothing more than routine maintenance, and if my previous experience with two other Mazdas is any indication, it will remain that way for a long time to come. The Mazda6 is not the quietest or smoothest riding car in its class, but the payback in terms of being nimble and responsive are more than worth the trade-off. The Mazda sales pitch of "driving matters" is spot-on, and this car is fun to drive. I plan on keeping it a long time.


Central Locking System Dangerous

The central locking is does not come on automatically. When turned on manually the doors won't open from inside in an emergency. This is extremely dangerous.


Stylish, Great Performance, Love it!

The recent model 2016 Mazda6 sedan was perfect for ALL my needs! It's stylish, sporty, yet roomy and comfortable. Most of all, I enjoy the interior controls both on the steering wheel and center console that fit to the driver's needs perfectly!
