Ok, so for the 12 days I have been driving this car here is my pros and cons.
Car: 2014 Mazda 6 Touring with Tech Package
Excellent interior layout
Leatherette is an excellent alternative to leather
excellent feel to the steering wheel
navigation knob for the stereo in front of the cup holder
Pandora App is a nice addition
When backing up, the system warns you of cars comming in your path
Bose stereo is excellent and crystal clear almost alone worth the extra for the tech package.
Blind spot assist works excellent
Accelleration on low end is great
Acceleration on high end is also great
The 2014 Mazda 6 handles like a sports car around sharp turns
While driving this car you also feel like you are in a luxury car.
very low noise.
Passenger seat retracts all the way down (flat) so the passenger could easily sleep during long trips.
You would never believe that you are in a fuel efficient vehicle.
excellent trunk room
plenty of room in back seats even with front seats all the way back.
They are not free
It may be difficult to find the right package with the right color at the right price at this point in time.
The review sites have not given this car the praise that it deserves.
Not looking forward to replacing the 19" tires down the road
Bluetooth feature could be better if you didn't have to go through so many steps to make a phone call (hit talk button, "phone call", response... "who whould you like to call", "john smith on mobile", response..." would you like to call john smith on mobile", "yes", response... "press pickup to call john smith on mobile", press pickup button). They really should make that process much shorter. if you just hit the phone button, you have to listen to a tutorial each time before you can say "call john smith on mobile".
