Wanted to introduce myself. Just got myself a 2014 Mazda 6 GT with all the bells and whistles. I was able to get it for 31,000 OTD. This is my third Mazda and I'm pretty happy with this car. I got it on Saturday "Crystal Auto Mall" and now the car has about 600 miles.
Story goes like this. I previously owned a 2010 Mazda 3s Hatchback. I loved that car. It was good to me and it never ever gave me a problem. Unfortunately due to my past jobs being so far the car took a lot of abuse. The harsh roads and the high mileage. The car had about 67k miles. I figured it was time for a new car. I had about 3 cars on the list and the Mazda 6 was not on it. The three cars were an "Acura TSX", "Lexus IS250", and a "CPO BMW 328".
Test drove all the cars and they were all very nice. Somehow I wasn't happy with any of them. Beautiful cars though. Decided to visit my local Mazda dealer to see what they had in the showroom, and mind you I totally forgot the 6 was getting an overhaul. As soon as I pulled up at the dealer, there she was. A soul red GT 6. My mouth just dropped. Even my wife was impressed and she's not really a car person. Test drove it and a few hours later she was home with me.
My thoughts so far:
Interior is just gorgeous. I got the beige with black leather and wow. The technology in this car is just insane. I only wish the nav screen was a little bigger but It's all good. I can live with it.
Love the Blind Spot monitoring system. It literally saved my a$$ twice. Kudos to that.
The backup camera works really well. A car was barreling down the road and it warned me. Pretty cool.
The gas is the best part. So far I'm getting around 32 miles on the gallon. That's a combo of local driving and highway. More highway of course.
Of course there's a lot more to love so ask away!!!
