Well, price is tough, it all depends on where you live. I am selling 2005 Mazda6 i Hatchbacks's pre-owned with 15K on them w/ luxury package, bose/moon 5-speed for $19,990 all day long, and I mean SELLING, not listing. You can offer $18,500, if they take it great! But, realistically, I would expect for you to pay closer to $19K
As for the side air bags, if you look, the side of the seat has a plastic cover for the airbags of which the leather, or fabric, does not interfear with. Aftermarket leather will be OK.
What color is the exterior/interior?

Parked in a friend's driveway in my 6 month old Mazda6i hatch. He takes an SUV and backs it out of a perpendicular driveway, not seeing that the nose of my car was in the way -- SMASH!!! Not even 4,000 miles, and only 4 payments in. Heartsick! I'll need at least a new bumper, right fender, hood and headlight assembly. Hopefully nothing underneath was hurt too badly. Anyone know a good body shop in NY Hudson Valley area?
#646 of 770 2006 vs 2007 Hatch
Oct 22, 2006 (5:21 pm)
I am looking to get a HB, thinking I might save some $$ (and get the 4 year warranty) by buying a 2006. Resale is not all that important to me, I tend to drive up until they drop (now have a 98 A4 Avant with 138K miles on it).
What are the advantages/disadvantages for each model? I can find a Volcanic Red 6i in the region (Northern New England).

Honestly, not much, besides package and color changes. The biggest difference (IMO) is the warranty, as you pointed out. I'd get a '06 ASAP, while there's still a decent selection out there...

I find that the 4 cyl. 5 sp. cruises reasonably quietly at 70mph +/-. It works a little too hard though, spinning at about 3 1/4 (much higher than my Olds Alero 5 sp., which used to spin at about 2 3/4 at that speed). I wish the 6 had an overdrive for a more relaxed long highway cruise.

#651 of 770 Noise on the Mazda 6 Hatch, 4 cylinder
Oct 30, 2006 (8:27 pm)
I had read somewhere that the Mazda 6 hatch was more noisy than the the sedans. Maybe this has something to do with the extra glass and hatch. Has anyone noticed this? Thanks
