New owner impressions
We leased our new Mazda6 Signature and within 2 weeks took a vacation from Ohio to southern Florida. I can tell you I was very impressed with almost every aspect of this car. First of all we averaged 31.3mpg with 4 adults and a trunk full of luggage and beach stuff. We were running between 75-80mph most of the time. Very good mileage IMO. Second, the seats are supremely comfortable, maybe the most comfortable seats I've ever had in a car. The ventilated seats were much appreciated and worked great. Third, the turbo's power was more than adequate. Sure, we'd all love more power but Mazda would need to put AWD on the car to handle it. The only drawback to the present set up is there is too much torque down low and not enough at higher rev ranges. You can smoke the tires while taking off from a dead stop and turning the wheel while doing so causes things to get a little hairy.
The only flaw we found during our 4000 mile trip was one day the infotainment screen went blank. The radio still played but there was no display for it or the NAV or Apple Car Play. I pulled the SD NAV card with the ignition on ACC, waited a minute and re-inserted and everything came back up. No problem with it after that.
I am so impressed with this car that I may end up wishing I had purchased it instead of leasing. Having previously owned 2 Lexus, 4 Acuras and an Infiniti the Mazda6 Signature definitely competes well with those luxury marks and is a step or 2 ahead of the Accord, Camry and Maxima/Altima. Well done MAZDA!
