2014 Mazda6: Introduction

An Extended Stay With The Sexy Six The new-for-2014 Mazda6 sedan is more than just a pretty face. For Mazda, it marks the company's best effort yet at competing in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment, all the while staying true to the brand's core value of offering high levels of driver involvement above all. We certainly came away impressed after our first drive of the sleek Six in France last fall, and we knew right from the start that this would be a car we'd want to spend a lot of time with back here at home. So with that in mind, the folks at Mazda graciously agreed to... Read More

    The Subaru Tribeca and Mazda6 haven't exactly set the U.S. auto market ablaze, and a report in AutoWeek (citing Japan's Nikkan Kogyo) claims that both models could meet an untimely demise. The Tribeca has been unpopular seemingly since the day it was introduced as the B9 Tribeca, and recent sales figures show that the Subaru crossover has only found 910 ...

    You know those cranes that you see at many large grocery stores? You know, the ones with the shiny, pointy claws that can't seem to pick up a teddy bear or some fuzzy dice. They're infuriating to use, mostly because you know you just got duped into paying fifty cents for something that you just can't win. They have the same claws in Russia, and apparently ...

    Mazda and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have succumbed to a bit of arachnophobia. The Japanese automaker has issued a recall for 52,000 Mazda6 sedans due to potential obstruction in the vehicles' evaporative systems.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what Madeline Leonard claims happened to her when she ...
