1gkar:scottjpalmer:How do you know that? Also, car-drive noise is usually related to the quality of a vehicles' sound insulation. Apparently, it is a known restriction. The Dog & Lemon Guide writes, "The only real downside is the Mazda6 is that the cabin is not as quiet as we would like".. . . the wheels caused a constant drone on the stone chip surface . . .
Sounds like an issue you can have with any car - usually the tyre's fault not the fault of the car.
Admittedly, it is just one person's opinion, like mine: and like yours. I never passed a judgement, I simply stated what my senses quantified.
It all comes doewn to personal opinion.
Personally, we've had over 6 of these cars (all different types I might add) Station wagon, Sports, Sedan. They have all not been too bad. The worse I thought was the Station wagon due to the actual size of it.
But the Sedan and Sports were quite alright, I thought.
