Yeah, they may have heard form a few readers about the errors. Still don't quite understand how they can say the 6 was the best to drive, but they favored the Accord? Conclusions like that just make me think there is some politics going on behind the scenes. Having now owned my Sig for a week, and having test drove the others I'm wondering if writers are just too afraid to get blacklisted by the larger Toyota and Honda if they come out and say the 6 is the best balance of the lot. These websites get money through viewer and readership and no doubt the majority of people are going to click if they see a Toyota or Honda review rather than Mazda. So if they piss off Honda or Toyota (or anyone larger than Mazda, they run the risk of loosing out on getting first dibs or any dibs on new models from the big guys. Classic 800lb gorilla or Dave and Goliath situation. IMO

I like owning a Mazda6 Signature even more with its relatively limited exposure and being somewhat of an underdog in the market. To me it makes it more exclusive rather than the glut of Accords and Camrys seen everywhere you look. I've even come to appreciate the lack of any trim specific badging to differentiate the Signature or its turbo engine, just the wheels and subtle spoiler identify the trim level to those in the know. I honestly feel that the Mazda6 Signature is a true standout in the market and its level of refinement is competitive with significantly more expensive vehicles.
