Reviewed 2014 Mazda6: The Zoom Zoom Family Sedan

The Midsize sedan market is hugely competitive with names like Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Volkswagen Passat and Chevy Malibu.  In this segment, to be successful, you have to do a lot of things very well, and the Mazda6 does most things well, so you have to ask why isn’t it more successful.
Other than the audio system, which had a number of issues connecting to various iPhone, iPod and Android units, we really liked the car, but is it best in class?  That’s what we are going to find out in this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive

  1. Hi, thanks for addressing this iPod problem in your review. I've watched many Mazda6 reviews and you're the only one thorough enough to have caught this fairly major flaw.

    Can you share the details you found about the firmware update? I'm considering a Mazda6 and have found lots of people on forums complaining about this issue in both the 6 and the CX-5 (same radio), but as of 12/1/13 I've not seen anyone report that Mazda has fixed it for them. Do you have a Technical Service Bulletin number that they (and I, if I buy one) could reference?
