"I bought this car almost a year ago to date. I paid $16,500 for it when it was brand new. I have 21,000 miles on it right now. I do notice some squeeking when you pull up next to a building. I got a new paint job paid for by mazda because I found some bubbles in the paint job right under the fuel door lid about 6 inches. Went and looked at some of the other 2006 mazda 6's and they had the same problem. No mechanical problems though and that is what means the most to me. I love this car. I still feels brand new to me and I will keep it for a very long time."
"I love the 6i. It is a very dependable car and escepically with 2 kids I can count on it. The only thing I would recomened to Mazda is the interior.....It's really not that comfortable at all...The seats are quit hard. But other than that I luv it and will keep it until it dies!!!!"
"I do love my car and the great pick up its has for a 4 cylinder engine. I do have some issues with this car though... they made special tires for the Mazda 6 series which are way over priced. I was able to get similar tires to help with the performance of my car. Another thing is that when you need to change a headlight you will need to bring your car into get serviced because the dealership will have to remove your front bumper in order to change the bulb. Also they only cover it up to 50k miles. The other thing is that oil changes are not cheap for this vehicle.
So those are just a little FYI's. Don't get me wrong I do love my car and the way it handles but those are just some down-falls which are minor but sometimes the minor things do add up in the long run."
"We tried all the recomended models in the magizines and kept going back to the Mazda. They offered us the best deal of all brands we tried also. We have people tell us all the time at gas stations and parking lots what a nice looking car we have."
"I bought this car in July of 2006 because it offered better looks and value than Camry or Accord as well as a hatch-back that is very handy for swallowing large items. This is my 4th Mazda and it is proving to be just as fun and reliable as the others I've owned."
