The sound system in the car is absolutely spectacular

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

Very reliable vehicle, has never failed me beyond my own mishandling. It does seem to go through tires somewhat faster than other vehicles I have experienced, but I am not sure if that directly relates to any fault of the vehicle. It's very comfortable to sit in, and the spacious back seat which can become an extension or the trunk allows me to transport object normally reserved for a pickup truck.

All that jazz, with a bit of snaz.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

This is a really great and reliable vehicle with that extra boost that makes you feel like you're driving a sports car. It has a spacious truck, plenty of legroom if you're under 6' and a great Bose sound system. The transmission allows you to manually shift gears if you want. I really love that option. It's a sharp a sleek car.

- Shawn J

it is a workhorse that seems to never want to quit.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

The car in its prime was sporty looking and comfortable. It has a 4 cylinder so I should have went with the sport model. I do like the car and it has been very reliable as I am nearing 240k miles on it. Nothing but normal maintenance done to it. Seems like it could go another 100k if properly maintained.

stick shift, great gas mileage

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

It gets good gas mileage and it a stick shift. It is very roomy and I love the hatchback as if provides me with a large truck and a back window. I also have to have a 4 door. It has cloth seats and a broken dashboard screen. It has 125,000 miles which is really good for how old the car is.

- Megan M

Mazda is great for longevity.

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

This car performs reliably even with high mileage. The only repairs I have needed to make are the kind you would expect with mileage, such as tires, brakes and other similar repairs. It is comfortable and the leather seats held up like a champ even with a dog.

- Sandra H

Very roomy and comfortable

2005 Mazda Mazda6 i

Great on gas, never had a problem with it besides the AC going out which can be easily fixed. Very roomy inside the car and in the trunk. Leather seats are comfy and makes for easy cleanup, however, the car gets hot in hot states like Texas. Runs smoothly
