  1. Difficulty entering car?

    Mazda6 (Atenza)
    I love everything about the Mazda 6 and really want it to be my next car but I can't get past this one weird thing. Every time I open the driver's door and sit in the driver's seat my back hits the B pillar - HARD! It's like the B pillar is about 6 inches too far forward. It bothers me...
  2. Base Sport Manual Review

    Consumer Reviews
    I would seriously consider the base Mazda6 Sport with a manual if I could just get heated seats and a sunroof. I don't care at all about the other differences. Jalopnik Review
  3. Changing Radio Stations?

    Thanks Bill_k. I was hoping it was that simple. I wonder why journalists keep making a point about it? Maybe they don't take the time to set the presets.
  4. Changing Radio Stations?

    Read a review of the Mazda6 and saw this: "We’re also over Mazda’s infotainment system, which requires too much twisting and poking of the infotainment dial. It shouldn’t be so difficult to change radio stations." I've read similar comments about the Mazda6 radio in other reviews. Isn't it...
  5. 2017 Mazda 6 sport steering wheel

    Interior Modifications
    I would suggest a 4 wheel alignment to see if that would correct the return to center after taking a corner.
  6. Vanity plate and signature plate frame installed.

    I give up. What does it mean?
  7. New Tire writeup

    Wheels / Tires
    If you are taking your car to a track then oversteer is preferable and more fun. But for 99% of drivers on public roads, understeer is much easier to correct as you pointed out.
  8. Should I replace all 4 tires?

    Every manufacturer and installer recommends to place new tires on the rear of the vehicle when only replacing two, regardless of FWD or RWD. "Michelin recommends replacing all four tires at the same time, however if replacing only two new tires, be sure that the new tires are the same size &...
  9. Next Gen Mazda6 may get AWD

    Future Models
    Mazda says the current engines don't "fit" with AWD in the Mazda3 and Mazda6 but that option is being considered for the next generations of each model. Mazda's Next-Gen Sedans May Get All-Wheel Drive - Motor Trend
  10. The 2018 Mazda 6 Is Getting A Turbo!

    2.5L Turbo I-4
    Has there been any information from Mazda about whether the turbo will on be available on only the GT trim or the Touring as well? I read that it would only be available with the auto but nothing about trim levels.
  11. The 2018 Mazda 6 Is Getting A Turbo!

    2.5L Turbo I-4
    I don't think there's any possibility of the new turbo being paired with AWD. That would have been a HUGE announcement right up there with the availability of the turbo in the first place. I do hope that Mazda allows us to choose a manual with the new motor in Touring or GT trim but based on...
  12. The 2018 Mazda 6 Is Getting A Turbo!

    2.5L Turbo I-4
    I'm hoping the new 2.5T will be available on both the Touring and GT trims similar to how Honda has made their upgraded 2.0T engine available on multiple trims - including with the manual in Sport and Touring trims. Then if Mazda would just add Android Auto and Apple Carplay it would be my...
  13. New features for 2017.5

    I had no idea that these BSM systems had problems identifying motorcycles but I guess that makes sense. I think these types of systems are great aids for drivers but too many people rely on them entirely instead of as additional help. Now that the Touring has NAV and heated seats standard, I...
  14. New features for 2017.5

    2017.5 Mazda6 Gets New Standard Features - Motor Trend Sport gets standard blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert Touring gets standard NAV and heated front seats No increase in prices for added standard features
  15. Deal breaker on getting the '17 Touring that I want

    I had never heard of that brand before. Thanks for the link.
