Why Not the 2006 Mazda Mazda6?


The car has a great deal of body roll. It was particularly bad in simulated emergency maneuvers, at which point the tires lost grip immediately and the car skidded badly.


The gearing of the transmission makes the car engine buzzy and loud when cruising on the highway. Under hard acceleration it is positively raucous.

Dealer practices

They seemed to think the car commanded a premium *over* MSRP and that they were doing me a huge favor by even offering to let me buy a car.

Safety & braking

Stopping distance is unacceptably long.
