    My car

    I have the Mazda 6 Sport and love it!! Blutooth as standard, Climate control operated from the steering wheel, cruise, folding mirrors, 6 disc, aux port for MP3, front and rear sensors, cheap tax. What more do you want for the money??

    I can't think of another car that comes as well equipt or drives as well for the money!

    My car

    Bought the car from new in 2004 and it has been a lovely car to drive. Comfortable and economical. Easy to handle. Good equipment level. Servicing OK but a bit expensive on parts with a replacement front light xenon bulb at £120.00.

    Problem dealing with Mazda. Fault with CD player during manufacturer's warranty period reported to dealer that took 27 weeks to be replaced with no support from Mazda. Constant delays between dealer and Mazda and "Nothing to do with us" attitude from both parties - eventually replaced free of charge but only after I spoke to the press, maybe this had some impact ?

    Otherwise no mechanical problems encountered and I have now covered more than 80,000 miles.

    Will be changing car soon and would normally consider another Mazda6, but experience in dealing with the company makes me very cautious and more likely to look elsewhere.

    My car

    A great car and when compared to the likes of even a Mondeo is great value. I particularly like the amount of useful kit that comes as standard with this spec, such as the xenon lights with AFS. As a company car driver I am also impressed with the emissions,although lets face it, the only way that Mazda has saved weight over the previous model is to replace the spare wheel with a pretty rubbish tyre sealant kit. As the car gets a few more miles on the engine is loosening up nicely and the economy increasing. It started at 41mpg and has settled at 46mpg when sat at 80mph on a motorway run. I also like the dealers who are friendly an approachable even for us annoying fleet drivers; VW take note! Overall I would recommend this car and it does make a genuine alternative to the more common Passats and Mondeos. The only thing I would change is the gearing which makes for hardwork off the line and through town.

    My car

    Have now owned the vehicle for a month - looks great, drives well. It feels much more expensive than it is. I was looking at Audi's costing over 10k more. You get a lot of car for your money, it looks great and feels a bit like a well kept secret - there aren't that many on the road yet.
