2.3L 5 spd automatic 5 door
I really like the Legacy Wagon and decided on the 6 due to dealer preference and handling of the 6.
You can't go wrong with the Subaru or the Mazda.

Sounds about right, then.
I love 5 doors but wish it were a tad bigger. I guess there's always the wagon, with those cool release buttons for the rear seat.

However, the wagon can only be had with the V6 which does not get good gas mileage.

The 5 door has cool release levers for the rear seat.

Cool, I think even the sedan has them. Very nifty.
Do your side mirrors break away? I test drove a sedan a while ago and it surprised me that the side mirrors were fixed.
We have a narrow car port and my wife has bumped them a couple of times.

I always felt the Speed6 should have been the hatch model.
Wonder if now that they will drop that turbo model, whether the 3.5l V6 (or even 3.7l the CX9 is getting) will make its way in to the lineup?

The Mazda6 sold in Germany is made in Japan and the Mazda6 sold in USA is made in Michigan. There may be major differences in quality between assembly plants.
