Editor's Overview

Basically a carryover from 2012, the 2013 Mazda6 is still an attractive sedan, but its engine and cabin technology are dated. Production on the current generation ceases at the company's Michigan plant in late September. The 2014 Mazda6 will be built in Japan and debut sometime next summer.

Mazda still doing its thing.

It has bad gas mileage and rides a little rough. Tire pressure light keeps coming on. The engine runs good and it gets me where I want to go. Replacement tires are great, but they came from china. It has a 6-disc CD player which works great. We got this car new in 2013 and will keep it for a few years yet.

My summary of the Mazda 6 on American roads.

The Mazda 6 is a very good and reliable, lightweight sedan. Though wind does shake the car if it is very windy. It is very good on gas especially if you are driving highway. The rear seat is very spacious. It isn't a fast car due to the engine only being a four cylinder. And the engine does run loudly.

It is an all black 2013 Mazda 6.

My brakes make a screeching sound when I press the breaks and my ac stopped working out of nowhere and magically started working again. Other than that nothing else is really wrong with the car. It gets me where I need to be in time and it is not a super old car it is only 5 years old right now.
