This Grand Touring has Everything I Need

by Jacob G from White Bear Lake | February 16, 2020

Everything about this car is perfect for me; the exterior style, the cabin's comfort, performance with the turbo/sports mode, sun roof, Bose Speakers, heated seats and all the other bells and whistles. My only complaints are that foreign cars don't have remote start (including this one), there was a tiny-tiny spot of rust where the paint got chipped and the windshield doesn't have tint at the top like most vehicles. My complaints are easy enough to fix, I'll put in an after market remote starter if I want, fix the spec of rust with a touch-up paint pen and have tint installed. Besides those minors things this car is amazing, it's fun to drive and extremely comfortable. You don't feel bumps im the road with this suspension! The paddle shifters are a nice plus and Mazda finally put a turbo in this car! If you are in manual-shift mode with sport mode on I think this car beats it's closest competition in 0-60 if that's a concern of yours. Also in my opinion the look and feel of the car destroys the competition! The leather stitching on the dashboard and leather seats is very premium. I would highly recommend you check out this vehicle, especially Grand Touring and on.

Worst Car I've Owned

by KP from Woodstock | December 04, 2019

The sales experience was fine when I purchased my 2018 Mazda 6 Signature new in December of 2018, however the car was in for service due to a warranty issue on 12/2/2019 with the rear seat chrome trim breaking, and the job was botched by the tech. The person broke the replacement pieces and wrinkled the leather. The car has 6,300 miles and garage kept. The build quality is inferior to the completion, and the run around we're receiving from Mazda and the dealership is a waste of our time. Please note, the car has several issues stemming from super thin paint that constantly and excessively chips as well as front door rattles and creaking noises. Not to mention, all four wheels were replaced due to black marks under the finish. I will NEVER buy another Mazda or give this dealership any future business or recommendations. The lack of business acumen from both parties is laughable, at best. Lesson learned.....

Nothing else comes close in this category

After being a long time VW and Honda family, our first thought was to go back to our old stand-by...thanks goodness we didn't! The Mazda styling looks great on the outside, and the overall fit and finish on the inside sealed the deal! The performance, room, and creature comforts are on a totally different level than the competition. If you haven't taken the time to check a Mazda out, you should, you won't be disappointed!
