Comparing the TSX to a Mazda 6? Weak engine? If I had the time i'd write a book on this one. The Mazda 6 is hardly comparable to the TSX. In fact, the mazda 6 inside looks like an orange and black plastic party. I'd rather suffer a little less power than look at that horrific dash everyday. The navigation on the mazda looks like a carcinoma sticking out of the dash. I've taken many runs in the last month with v-6 mazda 6's on the road. If there is a power difference..it's interesting that the V6 can't pull away from 40km - 160km. So much for a buying a v-6. Guess it's obvious I think mazda's are scraping the bottom of the barrel.

we bought the 06 tsx 6speed w/nav in Nov. 06. That was the car of my choice. My husband gets the next new car-the end of this year. He is leaning towards either the Mazdaspeed 3 or 6. He loves the mazda-as we had a 1991 mazda MX-6 GT. When we sold it last year it had 250,000 miles on it-with the original turbo, clutch, transmission and engine. It ran excellant and still could beat other cars-it was fast. We got $5,000 for it. The new owners painted it and put new seats and a new radio. It looks fabulous.

Both are a ton of fun. I prefer the Mazdaspeed6 over the Mazdaspeed3 b/c of the AWD and interior fit and finish.

My husband is leaning towards the 6 at this present time but that could change by the end of the year. The mazda dealers do not have any 3's so they want him to put down a deposit and wait. We do not buy until we can try it out and definitely will not pay over sticker price like they want.

There are some screaming incentives on the MS6 right now.
2006 models have $4750 customer cash, 2007's have $1000 customer cash. Mazda is also advertising a 299/mo 27 month lease with $2299 down (includes 1st months payment).
Invoice on an '07 Sport is $26,500. $500 over invoice minus $1000 rebate equals $26,000. That's a lot of car for the money. If you can find a left over '06, you're looking at closer to $23,000!

leasing is definately out for us and we put on alot of miles on our cars (25,000-30,000 a year) two months ago we made an offer for one of the 3 06 white mazdaspeed 6's the local dealer had on their lot. they refused saying they wanted $24,700.00 for them. They are still sitting in their lot. We are in no rush. we told them when they lower the price give us a call. would you believe they still have a brand new 05 mazda on their lot

That $4750 cash back on the 2006's: is this applied to MSRP, or to whatever final price you've negotiated with the dealer (let's say around invoice, for example)?

Incentives come from the factory, independent of the price you negotiate with the dealership. Don't pay the dealer more money because you're getting a rebate - $500 over invoice is plenty of dealer profit on this car.
