Editor's Overview

The 2017 Mazda6 is proof that a family sedan can be both practical and exciting. While it doesn't boast the sales numbers of rivals like the Honda Accord, the Mazda6 has an ace up its sleeve: It's one of the most fun-to-drive mainstream midsize sedans money can buy. Throw in impressive value, efficiency and technology, and it's a complete package.

An amazing car for an amazing price.

It is an amazing car for the price. Excellent quality leather in everything, good performance and mpg. The engine has a good sound but it would be better if the engine had a turbo option. The technology that this car has for the price is outstanding. Moreover, the design of the car itself looks beautiful. I forgot to mention, the led lights on the back and front are mesmerizing.

Perfect for the middle class family who want reliability and comfort.

We have the basic Mazda 6 model. No bells or whistles. Its very reliable, comfortable and fits our basic needs. 4 stars because it's a good car but I feel a bit pricey for the lowest model. Also, I don't really like the toggle features for the radio, etc. located by the cup holder area its a bit strange still after having the car for little while. Overall, sturdy and reliable.

2017 Mazda 6 touring. Fun to drive!

This car is really fun to drive, especially in sport mode. The 2017 Mazda 6 touring is elegant and sporty. It takes corners with ease and is very responsive. This model comes with a nine-speaker Bose system, which is the best I have ever heard! It has rear backup camera, blind spot alarms, moonroof, and push button Start. I cannot say anything bad about this car! I love it!

Safety Recalls (1)

Exterior Lighting > Turn Signal Oct 17, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 17, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V753000
Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2017 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured August 12, 2016, to September 28, 2016 and equipped with optional accessory fog lights. Due to an incorrect combination switch being installed, the turn signals may not automatically cancel by the rotation of the steering wheel. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
A vehicle continuously driven with the turn signal flashing may result in confusion to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the combination switch, free of charge. The recall began December 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 0316J.
