In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these passenger air bag inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. The Mazda6 handles predictable and safely at the limit.
The pickup in the 4-cylinder models is a little lacking, but not too bad. The interior is hushed at highway speed. Ive been through 3 engines since and decided I need to ditch the vehicle I love and start over again. The manual felt mushy at first, but that impression quickly faded into the background and we found it fun to shift. Ride quality is generally good, bit it can get a little jouncy on certain types of pavement and some road vibration comes through.
