Red Mazda 6 easy on gas and a wonderful family car or first car for teenagers.

The Mazda is really comfortable and a great fit for anyone doing a bunch of traveling. It is great on gas and has traveled over 1000 miles in a day and never gave any issues. It is also very comfortable and fits car seats. The seats are easy to clean and this is a very suitable family car. It was also useful as a first car for my child in college. Easy to use and navigate. However, the battery does die in cold weather. It is easily jumped and it begins to work again, but it must be started periodically to ensure that the battery does not get too cold and die.

A compact, comfortable and reliable city car.

I really like my vehicle because it does not require a lot of service being done. I live in California so gas is pretty high, but it only takes about $45 to fill up my tank completely. My car is extremely reliable and has never broken down or gave out on me in the last 6 years I have had it. The only con of the 2012 Mazda 6 is the Bluetooth delay. When I connect my Bluetooth device to the car, there's a 5 second delay when I want to play music or connect a call. Other than that I love my car and can rely on it to get me from one destination to the other.

It handles the road very well and is a well put together car.

My Mazda6 is a very reliable, comfortable car to drive. It drives well in all weather conditions and is a "smooth" car. It's exterior is sporty and attractive looking. The only cons that I have had is changing the headlights. A quick station isn't really equipped with qualified technicians to service the car. I would recommend a specialized shop or the mazda dealer. All around I recommend this car to anyone who wants a low maintenance car with good gas mileage.
