My daily driver is a 2006 Mazda6 V6 hatch..5-speed. My 6 has been BULLETPROOF. A tick over 100k miles and my only out of pocket expense was to replace a hydraulic clutch line that burst at about 90k miles. Other than that, it's only needed brakes and tires. The 3 liter Ford/Mazda V6 isn't particularly powerful, but it's VERY SMOOTH. The factory shift linkage is pretty nice, but a TWM short shifter was the best $170 I spent on my car.
