Mazda 6 - Not bad.

I was just checking out the new Sport Edition Mazda 6. Not a bad car for the money. Specs look pretty good for a Mazda, a little on the heavy side though.

V6 - VVTI - 220HP/192FTLB - 3389LBS - $22,635

It has an option for a 5 spd automatic.

i looked at it, too. i had liked the mazdaspeed protege, which led me to the 6. i think the 5-door looks a little cportier.

I was looking at getting the RX-8, but then I drove my friends Celli and fell in love. I drove my friends RX-8 on the Autobahn here too. That was lots of fun, but I decided not worth the 10 grand more I can use on Cool shit for my Celli.

the Mazda 6 is the best family car out there. it has a great appearance.

i love the headlights, and at night there are a total of four lights on, on the headlights...bright as fuck too.

thumbsup

the when the MazdaSpeed Proteg came out it only had 170hp, what a jipp. thumbsdown

i like the looks of the Wings West Proteg, but thats it.

for the money i would've spent buying the MS Proteg, i could've gotten a '94 Civic HB and dropped in a GSR motor and do more things to it. (but that's a waste of money too lollol)

This car is certainly not hideous, but those four doors are a dealbreaker. Mazda does make some attractive cars these days, but the whole Ford thing is certainly cause for consumer alarm.

Yeah, the ford deal sucks a lot.

I like the look, but I would never buy one because it has a variant of the Ford Taurus engine. Yuck!
