Other Mazda 6 (2002 - 2007) models:

  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Spot me if you can, I'm a sensible nutter.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    I've not heard any negative feedback from anyone that's seen it or been in it. They laugh at the fuel consumption though.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Absolutely. It's exactlky what I want. Power, stability and subtlety (when I want it:)

    What are you likely to buy next?

    The next MPS!

    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    April 2007

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I went in with a price I wanted to pay for the car and paid it.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    An alternative to the usual 4WD performance saloons...

    What was the dealer like?


  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Fantastic. A friend took one on a track weekend to Germany and said it was unelievable. When it snowed, it beat everything on the track hands down (including v. high performance sports cars). It performs best on country roads with plenty of bends.

    What's it like to park?

    I don't think it does have a great turninig circle, but I suspect that's to maintain stability at the limited top speed of 155mph. You don't buy this car to park it.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing at all.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It's a good-sized family car that won't leave the road in adverse conditions.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    I don't know if the electronic stability control counts, but it makes this car almost impossible to drive beyond your capabilities (there's an off switch too of course:)
