For two years in a row, the Daily News Autos team has voted the Mazda Mazda6 as the best Family Car you can buy. From its alluring design and top-notch crash-test ratings to its fuel-efficient engine and engaging driving dynamics, the Mazda6 sets the standard in the midsize sedan segment.
Twice over two decades of ownership of five different examples of Mazda’s outstanding MX-5 Miata, I’ve needed to replace convertible tops, each time because someone used a knife to slice into the car looking for something to steal. The tops aren’t cheap, and in my experience not only are insurance companies disinterested in paying for factory replacements but also the aftermarket tops simply do not fit as well or reflect the same level of quality.
Confidence and altruism are appealing and admirable traits, and after decades of facing and responding to economic and corporate identity challenges, today Mazda knows what it is and what it wants to do.
