: Possible getting rid of the focus
09-04-2006, 11:48 AM
I'm soon to be a father and need a bigger car then the Zx3. I've been looking around for something 4 door and in my price range. Well what i've found is a very sexy Mazda 6, Black, 6 disk changer, spoiler. Seems very nice for its price, but i'd like to know what everyone else thinks of it as well!
I loe the focus its a great car but having a baby with a car seat i dont want the car to get banged up and stuff from it, plus its a hassle to put it in the back all the time always folding the seats up and down.
I was looking into the MAZDA 6 when I recently sold my focus, which for the price, (new) I went into a VOLVO S40 instead, which happenned to be more but dollar for dollar, what you are getting......
I really like the MAZDA 6, alot actually, it's a great car. It comes time for everyone (for the most part) to sell the focus and get into something else. There's alot to choose from out there. What other cars have you been looking at?

Forget a 2 door car with a baby. Four doors is the way to go anyways. I loved my ZX5 SVT, but I had to downgrade to a regular ZX3. I just wish I could have kept my 4 door. Don't know too much about the Mazda 6 other than they look good/sexy.
Hmmm...now that I think about it, the SVT has been the only 4 door car I've ever owned.

Well, i've been looking at jetta's amd pretty much anything that can accomadate what i need and still look good. which the mazda 6 does. I have to get a used because i cant afforda new with the baby but the one im looking at is a 03 with 12,000 miles only and its super nice only this in a scratch by the shifter. But i'm also looking at a mazda 3, and whatever else im not really sure any ideas

you should look into a mitsubishi ralliart. they are a good car. not close to the evo, but have a better engine and suspension than the base, and the oz rally. and on the oz, i think its nuts they slap on 15" oz's and sell it for 3k more.

well i dont thinki i can really aford that, and ive been looking at modded 6's and they are sexy. they are sexy just stock as well only down side is the stereo you can put in a after market.. :( and the gas
the 6 is a good choice. I would say fusion, but the lack of manual tranny on the v6 models is a huge let down

I work for Ford and Mazda and I have always heard from the customers they are alot happier with the 6 rather than the Mazda 3 because of the size.
I would go with the 6 I had it as a Demo for a couple of days with the Focus was in service and I really didn't want to give it back. [:)]

My best friend just got a 6... LOVES IT. Sure it's not super zippy quick as the old GTI they had, but being in the late 20's/30's category now, they were looking for something more 'mature', 'professional', 'upgraded'... etc. Haha, that sounds so boring, but it's really not. I like it. It's really spiffy. [:)]

Wait a bit and get the Mazdaspeed3. 260hp and a cool wagon body can't be wrong...

well lol since i cant decied il keep the focus till i can figure out. i am only 19 so i still want a good looking car but something that can work the way i need it too.
I was thinking maybe a 03 jetta fully loaded but im not to hot with the car its really nice inside but the outside doesnt stand out
