#2304 of 2382 2014 mazda 6

Does anyone know if the new mazda 6 will be imported from Japan or still made in Michigan?
I have the 2009 mazda6 GTI bought in 2008. Zero problems to date. I am enjoying the fact that all of the maintenance parts so far are shared with Ford because that makes them cheap and readily available. Will the new mazda 6 have shared components like that or is mazda going back to pure japanese parts? Will the new mazda6 cost us more to maintain?

The 2014 Mazda6 is being imported from Japan. Since I want all the goodies, such as xenons, the Grand Touring would be the Mazda6 for me. But $30,000 MSRP??!! For roughly the same money, I could get a fully loaded Nissan Altima SL with the V6 engine.

Yes, for roughly the same money you could get a loaded Altima sl with the v6 engine. But that would mean you have a loaded Altima sl w/ a v6 engine. Maybe you consider that superior to a loaded Mazda6; I don't.
I would prefer to have the better handling, larger, more fun to drive car that gets better gas mileage (due to Skyactiv tech), but maybe that's just me.

I will, I test drove the Accord and made my decision so much easier. I will stick w my original decision. Again my solely dessire was to share with this forum so that those who were looking for this specific car would have an idea in pricing when looking for the 2013 model. Again it was $16, 857 OTD For the 2013 isport model automatic in red. Either the fitzmall in MD or the one in Easton PA would go for this price. And since is such a great car, people will be lining up to the street to get it...

I don't consider either car to be superior to the other, nor have I previously owned a Mazda or Nissan. I'm cross-shopping the Mazda6 Grand Touring and Altima SL. I consider the Altima's V6 an advantage over the 4 in the Mazda 6, and its CVT to be a detriment compared to the Mazda 6's automaric. Any other insight is welcomed. Is the Mazda 6 larger than the Altima?

Thanks for the OTD price on the 2013 sport auto. Do you know what the price before taxes/reg/docs was? I'd like to know cause the tax rate for each state is different.
Also, anybody in California get a good deal on a 2013 sport?

Damn, that is pricey. It will probably be a better build quality car than the current Mazda 6. But 30,000 is steep. We got my wife's 2010 Acura TL at the end of the 2010 model year for similar money. I have found there is always a pet peeve with every car. In the Nissan's it is the CVT, with Honda or Acura V6 it is the engine still uses a timing belt, expensive maintenance if you intend to keep the car, but it is less annoying than a CVT. The best combination powertrain is the Acura TSX 2.4L with the 5 speed auto. I understand the new Honda Accord 4 cyl is also mated to a CVT. So pick what you can live with until someone makes the perfect car

mvperez4jesus-can you share the name of the dealer who you worked w/ to get this price? I am interested in 2013 Mazda 6 auto isport trim w/ no options and the best price I got from fitzmall was $16400 (not including Tax, title and tags). I presume you got the auto isport as well?
