    I owned a 1985 Mazda 626 diesel, bought new, drove it 176,000 miles. The only reason I considered a Mazda was I wanted a diesel. I like diesels due to their superior fuel economy & heard Mazda was again bringing a diesel back to the USA in 2013. Hope they bring an affordable diesel back to the USA.

    @ rickmyers:
    Agree, based on price & features, I put the Mazda6 on my shopping list but when wife & I test drove she hated the car... much preferred Fusion or Camry. Mazda has cheap feeling interior and sits very low like race car, plus slightly harsh ride (all attributes that appeal to their young 20's male demographic but not to the mommy class who daddy has to live with. It just doesn't feel like a grownup car when driven back-to-back w/competitors. Even the new Hyundai Sonata feels nicer inside and costs less.

    The Mazda 6 is such beautiful appearing car I wonder why I don't see many of them on the road. Far better looking than Camry/Accord/Altima and from what I understand equally reliable and well-made?
