Hey all you lucky folks that HAVE an M6s (v6) with the 5 speed trans (auto/man) how is the acceleration? I test drove it the car, but want to know about daily usage.

How does it feel merging onto the freeway? Like its got way more to give? Or does it feel weak?

How about off of a red light? Does it feel exciting w/o haveing to redline it?, or are you waiting for this thing to move?

Oh and does anyone know if a say...a supiercharger mod is being made for this thing?

Gracious mi amigos

if u want more horsepower go for V6 version if u can... im in Australia we dont ge V6 version... iver read alot here .. some ppl r happy with I4... some wants extra power goes for V6 ... just remind yourself ... it's only a sports sedan/hatch .. not a true sports car .. if u want to race with pure sports car u get ur ass kicked for sure...
0~100km/h is around 9second ish ...

Cheers

The i4 is good for what it is (modern tech variable valve etc) but the V6 is better and I want one, simple.

If ever there was one car that should be taken for more than its performance numbers or the sum of its features, it should be the mazda6!!!
Trust me I’m saying this after 5000 Km (in less than a month) with a 2.0 bare sedan, and this is also from a guy who vowed that his next car well be a nothing short of V6!!!

I truly pray Saddam is playing a game of brinksmanship and will capitulate when push comes to shove. None of us want a war, but Bush is hardly bluffing.

Stay safe.

Ruefus - I hardy think it will be soo nice... If someone wants a war it's Saddam - we don't have a clue about what he as in his sleeve! Cruise missiles? If he have nuclear arms, and USA attacks, then a lot of americans and Iraki people are going to die. Just what I think...

The V6 5 speed is great, smooth clutch, smooth, accurate shifter and gear box, and the performance is awesome. My biggest problem is finding places where I can safely use that performance :) That and wanting to launch the car like a bat outta hell at every light. as for everyday driving there is plenty of power down low, I can wait to do some mods to smooth out the power band. I'm very happy, I'm only at about 3000 miles and I bet the engine will still open up some more

Never said that's what I thought'd happen. I PRAY nothing happens but know better.

Saddam isn't stupid. On the contrary. 'Winning' isn't really an option for him. At least not how we'd define it. If he fires off a nuclear device or biological weapon, he knows the entire world will probably agree instantly to collectively turn Iraq into a piece of glass.

Guys,
I've been lookin' at the "6", but just read an article that here in Canada it's limited to 120mph...Is this true??, if so what "cheesey" 17" tires do Mazda supply with it???

I currently have an Intrepid R/T which I just don't trust anymore after my Tranny blew up last month. Wife has a Tribute, which got me thinkin' "Mazda"..........

The 120mph governor isn't due to the tires. It's probably done to keep the insurance rate down.

I have to admit, this didn't make sense to me at first, then I looked at where you are from and laughed hard, then after I thought about it for a second, it didn't seem very funny to me anymore.

Well, at least you have a great handling car to dodge the bombs that'll be raining down on you.

I think it is limited to 120 mph but that could be easily removed. Plus why do you want to go any faster than that anyways?
