Pros: "Handling, sporty look inside and out. Reliable!"

Cons: "Trunk space....."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought this car with 131k miles. It has been driven in harsh Michigan/Upstate New York winter weather. Handled okay but with all weather tires would have been great. It's now at 142,000 miles and I'm trading for a Honda Accord. No problems with this car whatsoever just need some more room."

Pros: "Good handling, very reliable"

Cons: "Interior problems w/ headliner and seat bolstering"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Very disappointed in the headliner, which began sagging after 5 years. That is a very common problem with 2005. Also, lumbar support on the driver's seat is bad. Car becomes quite uncomfortable on trips over 100 miles. Otherwise, the car has been absolutely perfect."

"I've only had to do routine maintenance to this car. It's never needed any repairs in 7 years and 60,000 miles. It has convenient, small storage spaces (for sun glasses, etc.) in several places near the driver's seat. Really like this car."

Pros: "Fun to drive, dependable,"

Cons: "Has a small dent where my daughter backed into me"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is my 4th Mazda-6, handles effortlessly, handles snow, ice, rain like it was made cold weather. Design perfectly, It's color is pebble-sand, (may look silver, taupe, gray) I've never had a problem & just recently replaced the first hose due to wear, it had never broken down or left me stranded. I've not been able to find another, It has all the bells & whistles, will keep it or one like it forever."

Pros: "fun to drive, no mechanical issues 150K miles"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Sporty, fun to drive, yet perfect for everyday, Performed well under all road conditions and got great gas mileage. This car made several cross-country trips and had no issues with just regular maintenance for well over 150K miles. A few cheap plastic interior parts, but to be expected in this class. Compared to the current mazdas, quality, performance and road feel of this model blows the new ones away. This was my 2nd Mazda, drove the protoge before this and that also lasted 10+ years and over 200K miles with no major issues. Driving the new CX5 now and sadly, I doubt it will make it to 100K, feels so cheap. Like they say, they just don't make things like they used to. I was sad to have to say goodbye to her. The 6 was a fantastic, fun car."
