Owned 2 and put over 115k on each in New England commutes of less than 15 miles RT per day which is the worst driving for the engine, clutch etc. If not for rust both may have gone longer as engines were fine. full 2009 Mazda Mazda6 review

Mostly reliability and maintenance bills, plus low resale. It was fun to drive and worked well for the first 75K miles. full 2003 Mazda Mazda6 review

For MT trim that I wanted, half the country was searched but only 2 colors were available - Red and Black. It was easy to pick from, right? I really didn't want this car but bought it because of price per quality. I simply found that everything else had more CONs than PROs. Besides Ford Mustang. But I couldn't find 1yo, manual, v6. In these circumstances I had 3 choices - Elantra Sport with its gloomy interior but plenty of features. Civic Sport Hatch but it has idiotic instrumentation and no variable intermittent wipers, let alone bad brakes and steering. Accord Sport MT - but this is just an LX with power seat and sport suspension and huge wheels, and it was just too big for me. I didn't even plan to go to Mazda dealer because I drive Mazdas since 1998. My wife said, "you don't like anything, go try Mazda..." So, I went and of course, I bought it. I wish Infiity made Q50 manual. I would buy that if it was avail. Didn't want another Mazda where where to go if you in the submarine? full 2017 Mazda Mazda6 review
