Mazda 6 is a very reliable car.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

My car has been very reliable. I have owned it now for 6 years. Only problem I had was with the neutral switch. Had it fixed. Car has a nice smooth ride. Speed is sufficient. Comfortable seats. I have had complaints about the passenger side seatbelt not being too comfortable. Sound system is excellent. Has six speakers and multi disc player. I have had regular maintenance performed to keep the car running new. Only had front and rear brakes replaced once in 6 years and also rotors. Also had front shocks replaced once. Car has been very reliable in winter. No trouble starting. Handles well in the snow. This car use my second Mazda 6. My first Mazda was just as reliable. No major problems.

An interesting detail about the car is the lean in the front end looks sporty

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

My vehicle is a 2008 Mazda 6 I-Sport with sport edition shocks, low profile tires, enhanced dual brake calipers on all four wheels, sport enhanced mass flow exhaust, and a big block turbo. Performance will all the mods on the engine is incredible going from stock 200HP to an outstanding 352HP still getting at least 30 MPG highway and 27 MPG city. Comfortably is no issue in this car with its sleek leather seats, moonroof, heated seats, and the amazing Bose bass system with the Bose radio. Never a dull moment in this car!

My Mazda and my Memories.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

I think the vehicle has a very casual look to it. The sport edition gives it a clean look but also is not an attention seeker. The car is very comfortable and spacious for its size, plenty of trunk room. It has been very reliable, I've had issues with my tires and tire pressure light a lot and that would be my only complaint. The Vehicle was very affordable and runs really well even with it over 200,000 miles. I think Mazda is definitely an affordable and trustworthy vehicle manufacturer.

I love this vehicle. Owned a Mazda 3 before this.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

All of the features are amazing. The safety and extra features are by far the best. I love the lane assist and blind spot monitoring. I especially love the high beam feature where it turns off in oncoming traffic. I love this vehicle. Owned a Mazda 3 before this. The 6 is more spacious and still gives me the sporty look and feel that I was accustomed too. Very impressed that it is highly rated for safety. With being a mother of 2 young girls, it means everything.

Had this car for long time and never had engine problems

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

This car has fallen apart over the years--the suspension creaks, none of the power windows work, one of the doors sporadically refuses to open. However, it runs incredibly well for how old it is. She's old reliable. The seats are comfortable and the car itself is spacious, but I still think that for a 10-year-old car the features and body have held up surprisingly poorly. I don't think anything could kill this engine, though.

It has a very good stereo package.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

It's been a great vehicle since I've had it with low to almost no major issues just regular maintenance. Drives very well and use very good on gas mileage. Also has enough space to take long family trips on the road with comfort and ease. I would definitely recommend this vehicle for somebody looking to purchase a new vehicle

- Drew P

I love the fold down rear seats, gives me room.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

I had a small electrical problem with it, but it stemmed from a idiot installing the battery and crushing a wire. Other than that, no problems. Regular maintenance, new tires, no problems. The one thing that I could say is that the headliner could have been better made. It has some issues. Of course, the airbag issue.

- Carol S

My Mazda 6 is very sporty

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

It's a 4 cylinder so it's not as powerful as I would like. Sometimes the gears slip or hesitate. It's both manual and automatic which is the reason I think the gears shift differently. My air conditioner went out and I cannot figure out what's wrong on my own.

- Rhonda M

Nice little car to get you where you need to be.

2008 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport

Good car. Good motor as long as you do regular maintenance. Not the best pick up speed. Has a drag when u put foot to gas. Seats are pretty comfortable. Ergonomic. Plenty of room in the backseat for long legs. Fold down back seats make extra room in trunk
