Why the 2009 Mazda Mazda6?

Feature availability

Lots of features in the GT for the price I was able to get.

Fuel economy

So far seems higher than EPA estimates. Gearing close so that I can drive 30-40 around town in 5ht or even 6th. 6th should be further out to improve mileage even more.


European steering feel. Little too much body roll than I wanted but responsive to input. Tracks well on center w/o input.

Past personal experience

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.

Why Not the 2009 Mazda Mazda6?


Sporty feel/drive leaves too much noise. Ok when I was 20& stero was cranked. Now not so much.

Cargo capacity

PLEASE MAKE THIS CAR in a WAGON!! It could look great (not like Honda Accordtour in US) more like Audi

Dealer practices

Not as friendly especially on service end as other Japanese dealers. Local options are either with VW/Porsche/Audi or with Ford dealer so maybe guilt by association.
