New -- 2006 Mazda 6 S

We've had our 2006 Mazda 6 S for 15 months or so. It was meticulously cared for by original owner. We really love it and want to take good care of it moving forward.

Welcome! 1st gen 6s's are the best! I may be a little biased though...

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

Welcome! In my opinion these cars are easy to take care of and it’s fairly affordable to do so.

Welcome to the forum!

I loved my 1st gen, but it would never have been able to stand up to the abusing amount of miles I've put on my 3rd gen already.

The 3L is a decent motor but very outdated for the early 2000's and gets horrific fuel economy. The 2.5L has a punchier mid range which makes it better suited to the 6 chassis, a greatly improved transmission and far better fuel economy. With a 91 octane ECU tune, the 2.5L would have just enough torque and give the 3L a real run for it's money.

You simply, as usual, have no idea what you are talking about. My 2004 V6 routinely averages 25mpg and it goes into the 30mpg+ range on long highway trips.


Obviously you do not own nor ever have owned one so please refrain from posting about things you have 0 experience with.

My friend used to own an auto version. I used to own a manual version. Yes, I do know what I am talking about so I will post about it.

I don't know how you got 30MPG on the highway, because the EPA rating is 24MPG which I found to be accurate. Both the auto and manual versions we had never got much more than that. In the city, driving aggressively is where it got really bad - My friend routinely averaged less than 15MPG and it would be at 10MPG or worse in the winter. He drove the shit out of his car, but that's still very bad fuel economy.

I found the auto version to have a lot of lag in the low RPM's because of the torque converter. The 5speed felt notably faster and pulled much strong off the line in low RPM's. It really helped bring out the character of the engine and make it lively to drive in comparison to the auto. It was a great car despite it's shit MPG.

Im parting out my 06 6 mt hatch if youre interested in anything you dont have option wise. I need to liquidate everything as fast as possible, so prices will be bargain basement and i will ship anything anywhere as long as you pay for the larger items like seats etc.

Do you have the black leather front seats? The ones in my 07 are trashed (previous owner clearly didn’t care about interior maintenance)
