Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"The best part about my Mazda is the engine. It's very smooth and lazy at low RPM, which facilitates relaxed driving. However, drop a couple of gears, rev it past 4k and it turns into a loud, angry beast. It pulls strong all the way to the redline. This is by far the best sounding car I ever owned. Handling is excellent for a fairly large and heavy wagon. It's a joy to drive on twisty roads."

Ivan I., ON (2007 Mazda 6)

"It's only a 4cyl, but it handles the road well."

Kenneth W., TX (2007 Mazda 6)

"It is so fun to drive! The steering and acceleration are so responsive."

Lisa S., MA (2007 Mazda 6)

"The 2.3 liter 4 cylinder engine is underpowered."

Anonymous, GA (2007 Mazda 6)

"Though it is a weaker engine, the stickshift makes it a fun sportscar"

Anonymous, AL (2007 Mazda 6)

"Handles beautifully. A fun car to drive."

Anonymous, MI (2007 Mazda 6)

"Car rides nicely and acceleration is good but steering is to easy and you don't "feel" the road so well."

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Good: - the ride is fairly firm for this type of car, and it makes it feel extremely confident during spirited driving. I did not realize that a car this big can be so much fun to drive. At the same time, it's compliant enough to handle any public road - the cabin is not overly isolated, so you can hear the glorious noise the engine makes when you rev it out The Bad: - leather seats get uncomfortably cold in the winter and scorching hot in the summer. I would very much prefer cloth seats. - se..."

Ivan I., ON (2007 Mazda 6)

"This car has been comfortable, quite, and smooth for 10 years."

Kenneth W., TX (2007 Mazda 6)


Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Price was great in 2007 and the car has been very reliable."

Maureen J., MA (2007 Mazda 6)

"The 2007 Mazda 6 is a 5 door hatchback. As such when the rear seats are folded down this car offers a great deal of versatility when it comes to hauling stuff. The V-6 offers plenty of power when required."

PAUL S., ON (2007 Mazda 6)

"Great Driving Experience sporty and responsive"

WARREN F., ON (2007 Mazda 6)


How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"I own the hatchback version, but it looks like the sedan version. The only way you can tell is the fact that there is a windshield wiper on the back."

B B., NC (2007 Mazda 6)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
