Greeetings fellow Mazdaians!
I am the proud owner of a 2016 Mazda6 GT w/Tech Pkg in Deep Crystal blue with a white interior. I recently just joined as I found myself looking through the forums more and more and as the founder of the BMW 7 Series Club way way back in 1993 I enjoy cars and engaging with fellow obsessed mined people.
What I love about the 6 is the flat handling and responsisveness. While I wish it had more power like a BRZ, I have been most impressed by the handling. The interior is beautiful and as an owner of an 2014 Audi A6 that most car media consider as one of the best interiors, I love the seats and interior of the Mazda 6 as good or better. Maybe not as solidly built as the Audi but the two tone interior with white seats is very cool looking.
The Deep Crystal Blue with white interior really looks sharp in the sun but my pictures fail to capture the metallic detail. I really like the red equally as well but I felt it would be more of an "arrest me red". It's very functional, has headroom and with 3 son's 6' to 6'6" they can all fit in the car with the asterik that my wife is only 5'2" so it works out.
My car has been free of issues except for the cool matching gray wheels which developed a peeling problem early on and was handled under warranty. The new item that just showed up is the intelligent E-Loop battery is bad and I'm contemplating whether or not to go with an AGM or bite the bullet and get the Maza labeled battery.
I look forward to being active on the site and exchanging and sharing. Here's a bit of my car past.
