Default Is Mazda 6 a good car?

With the rising complaints about the Mazda 6, I wanted to gauge what everyone's experience is so far, even if you don't own one still tell us whether you think it is a good car or not.

I personally love this car! yes I've hit a few minor bumps, but this is my 7th car and I've experience the same if not more problems with others I've owned.

So give a short description on why you think it's a good car or not.

Hell yeah!

You get small car dynamics and big car practicality for under $20k. What's not to love?

it's obviously a good car. just about every car is a good car nowadays, because of advanced technology. and the 6 is a little on the luxury side and a little sporty, so i would say it's a good car

Any car that's fun to drive that 18 year olds can afford is a great car. Handling is excellent, the space is great, styling is different from the other drones on the road and the performance market is starting to heat up.

A friend of mine drove the car and loved it. He wouldn't give up his Lexus GS, but that is kind of understandable...

As far as the complaints, for the most part they are minor problems, which is to be expected on a car in its first year. The car overall seems to be doing very well, considering we hear a few complaints out of the thousands of owners. And the car is very nice to look at, good power, and great handling. I love it.

Gee, do I really have to say anything?

Well, mine has been a nightmare of a car. However, I think the design is great, especially the interior. The driving dynamics are good and few cars on the market at any price have such a great balance between ride and handling. However, I managed to get a lemon and soon it will be gone. I won't touch another 6 again, but not because I don't think it is a good car. Mine was a fluke, but if I get another one, I will nitpick it to death and that won't be fair for the car.

Love the car! Love it when I approach the driver's door after a complet circle of the car. Looking at the beautiful front, side and rear fascia just gets my juice flowing. Once I get into the car, I see nothing but a beautiful dash. One turn of the key and it comes alive with a gentle red environment.

Then all that just disappear from my mind when the engine roars and entering the first corner.

This car has it all. At least for the price range, there is no other alternative in North America that can be compared. Perhaps a Mazda3 but then that is still in the same family in my book. :)

I had one minor problem but besides that I like it. My only regret was not looking harder for a 6 with a manual transmission.
