Myself, I purchased 6 Sport with the automatic being the only option. So for my price point (about $21k) I think I got a pretty darn good performing car. (Although I spent $500 on a tune to make it perform a little bit better

Of all the complaints and concerns I have read here have basically been addressed by this forum "family". IF Mazda desires new customers to acknowledge them, they need more "propaganda" styled guerrilla marketing (like the STAR WARS Campaign but not overboard...like the R2D2 Soup), and have the 6 in TV and Movies.

Overall I LOVE my 6, and wouldn't trade it for any competitor vehicle! I have addressed most of my personal gripes through my aftermarket endeavors, and have a few more to go. Besides how often can you find something that looks twice as nice than other vehicles that cost twice as much? IMHO, Mazda is doing it, and doing it well!

Just curious, why wouldn't you want GAP coverage?

Not that i didnt want the gap coverage i just probably could've gotten it cheaper through my insurance. In all honesty, i never called progressive to find the price but im sure it would have been less expensive

First time ive ever dealt with it though

Next time you buy a car and get to the F&I guy, know that the GAP insurance and extended warranty are both negotiable. I found this out back in 2005 when I bought my Subaru Impreza. I was intent to only get the GAP coverage. Told the F&I guy I'd pass on the extended warranty. He instantly sliced the extended warranty price in HALF, claiming he didn't want to see me go without it. So from $1500 to $750.

Ever since then, when I buy a car I initially decline extended coverage and just opt for GAP. The price comes down real fast after that.

Gap Insurance also depends on how much you put down on the car when you buy it. If you are "upside down" meaning you owe more than the car is worth, it is wise. But also less expensive through your own insurance provider. You may already have it and not know it.

If you owe less than the car is worth, Gap is a waste of money.
