I guess I expected more as I thought the Cobalt was supposed to be a big improvement over the Cavalier. Did not seem much better to me in terms of "drivability" or desirability. I understand the Cobalt is a cheap car (which should be the criteria for expectations, rather than compactness), Focus is cheap too but seems to be a much better car than the cobalt despite being an older design.
Anyway, I was real glad to get back in my Mazda6...I was thinking "wow, I really have a nice car"...of course, it did cost a few thousand more than a cobalt.

Like when is the 09 6 coming onto Mazda dealers lots? The salesman who I took the test drive with said I think that Janurary of 09 that the 09 6 will come out. Basically I;m wondering how long Mazda dealers will be selling 08 6's before the redesigned 09 model comes out?
Well, I've heard as early as January to as late as June. Either way, I'm sure there will be enough '08 models on the lots to last the entire 2008 calendar year.

I believe that someone had quoted a Mazda press release, on one of the forums here, that indicated that the information on the US version would come out closer to it's release next summer.

The pics and the car.
The sedan has awkward appearing proportions. The 5 door has better lines.

Two posts with very wide pictures had to be removed. Please make sure a picture you post is not wider than the normal message text area of the page. If you post them on your CarSpace page, you can use the automatically generated code to display them and they will be resized to fit.

How do you do that? I tried this on another forum here and when I copied and pasted the code from the carspace image, that said it was to embed a picture all that shows up is a link, like this:
See more Car Pictures at CarSpace.com
If I instead copy and paste the image url from it's "properties" and then select the url and click on "Img" button, I got a red X, like this:

Okay, my bad. Apparently there is a bug in the embedding code that is known and being worked on. So never mind.
On the other, the only possibility I can come up with is the spaces in the album and picture names. You might try a separate album avoiding spaces - underlines instead may be okay, but I wouldn't even do that for this test - and see if that works. If it does not, please go to the Help link below and report this.
There is nothing wrong with the way you are doing it (paste, select, IMG button) and it should work.
Drop me an email and let me know.
Meanwhile, if you just paste the URL in your message, people can click on it and your picture will display for them.

Our 2005 6 came with a sunroof deflector. I refer to a separate dark tinted plastic piece mounted atop the car.
I'm debating removing it, at least for the winter season. I think it will come off easily, but not sure.
The sunroof seems noisy compared to our previous car, a 99 Acura CL. It seems noisy to me either slid open or tilted. I also notice some low frequency noise if all side windows are closed and the roof is open. The CL didn't have this symptom. The CL did not have a deflector.
I'm thinking the noise may be less without the deflector.
Anyone else either added one, or removed one, or doesn't have one and thinks it is quiet with the roof open.
It will be easier to wash the car without it mounted.
