I would agree. I just came back from our biggest Mazda dealer in town and they do not have any at all, not even on the "back lot". They have atleast 30 2005 Mazda6's in front with stickers 5k off etc..
I only saw one 2006 Mazda6 for now (at smaller Mazda/Honda dealer), and I liked it. Guess we have to wait few more weeks then they have to bring them all in.

Fleet orders got a big chunk of initial production. This is normal. There is also a 4 cyl engine commodity issue that pushed back alot of orders.

I guess the strong sales of the Mazda3 s can be blamed for the 4cyl engine shortage. That's OK, I want a V6 anyway.
Most fleet sales will be 4cyl cars, so where are they hiding the V6 units?

Since you have a lot of inside info( read few posts during the last 6 months), can you please tell me location of navigation system?
It looks to me like it is going to be on the top of the dash, where the additional space for sunglasses etc. used to be. But is going to be a pop-up, flip up or something else? I think I read somewhere that it will be voice activated also, so that is nice. Gray one that I checked out was loaded V6, but no navi.

Yeah, I want one that pops up out of the top of the dash when I say "Nav on".

Your correct...the location is the top of the dash. flip up screen and there is voice recognition. similar to the MZ5 system. $2000 and available on the 'i' and 's' model grand touring and grand sport.
I was looking at the voice command list...some of the commands are a little much....how many folks are driving around looking for a "winery" ???

Thank you for the promp response audia8. Maybe you can post the prompt list? I suspect it is too long..I wonder is there a "strip joint" command
My only fear is that we are going to see Mazda6's with 30k stickers? Not many people are posting their prices recently? Is anybody buying 6's anymore?

That was the special Green Bay Packers model...
It wasn't "winery", it was "wienery"....

The list is kinda long....so if somebody really wants it, email me your fax number.
Most of the commands are obvious....direction commands like zoom in, zoom out, right map, left map....store point etc...
POI (Point of interest) commands examples....hospital, chinese rest, fast food, court house, ATM, hotels, airport, Dolphin stadium, etc...
I tried strip club....got nothing.

Well, I for one might be looking for a winery.
I think for "strip club" you would ask for "T&A bars", no?
