first mazda6 2005

today i test drive mazda6 for the first time
it was a 2005 with 67k miles 2.4 engine

now the car is in very nice shape
beautiful interior

now about drive
i felt the seats kind of small, not wide enough
when i started moving, the engine noise was pretty high (which i was not expecting and i don't know if its normal or not)

gear shifting was smooth from first to 2nd but then from 3rd to 4th it took a while.

again i dnt know how the gear ratio is but thats what i felt.
also the sport shifting option did not work

rest the ride was pretty decent

what are your veiws since u drive the cars and has been driving for a while

thank you in advance

I take it this wasn't in the US?

anything where the "shifting option did not work" is something I would run away from as fast as I could.
