 2017 Mazda 6 SPORT owner review

Jonesboy purchased this Mazda 6 new with additional options for $35,000 (including all on-road costs). Jonesboy would buy this car again because: "Damn right! It meets all my current motor vehicle requirements, and then some. I can sort of understand the lemming like fascination with SUVs, but have no desire to jump off that metaphorical cliff."
