What kind of reaction do you get? I might be insulted by the question, but I guess that is the reaction I might want if I asked the question as I showed them the SUPERIOR Mazda398LX said:
You've flown right out of the 6's class. The G35 is $27,950, the TL is $32,650, and the LS430 is $55,125, that's almost 3 6's.vartex said:[...] if i was going for a sedan like a 6 id actually go for the whole damn thing and get G35 or the TL, heck maybe even the LS430
Whatever. To each their own. The 3's interior may be nice RELATIVE TO ITS COMPETITION but it didn't impress ME one bit. I'd take the 6 any day of the week over the 3, due in large part to its cheesy two tone seat color, way out of place knobs and goofy red volume lights. The whole thing reminds me of something a high-school freshman would design.n1smo said:I sat in the 6 and it is not half as impressive as the 3. The interior of the 6 looks cheap compared to the 3, especially that center console with the 3 circle air vents with everything painted silver that is trying-to-be-upscale-but-too-cheap-to-use-aluminum. The fit and finish is not as good as the 3. I personally would never buy a Mazda 6 because of the interior, also, the V-6 is just weak and it is a b1tch to mod. Nice suspension though....
BTW.. Which 6 do you have?
Blah, no offense but anyone with half decent driving skills can live without this IMO.Someone here hit on something that would be a deal breaker for me on the 3, that I forgot: TCS. After having TCS in the 6, I'd never buy a car without it. It's so amazing in the snow.
The Mazda6's V6 is weak compared to other cars it is supposed to be market against. Heck, even the Accord has more HP than the MZ6. A 2000 Maxima puts out 222hp, that was 4 yrs ago... The MZ6 is still putting out 225hp.scorp76 said:I didn't know we were talking about engines, but since you brought up the V6, it beats the 3, so if it's "weak" what does that make YOUR car? :roll:
