Mazda underestimates demand for V6, five-speed manual-equipped 6

May 30, 2003
by AutoWeek

The same day AutoWeek sent a story to press saying marketing execs are pushing BMW to bring an auto-shifting M5 to the States to cater to American habits (AW, June 2) we received a letter from a reader informing us he couldn’t get a Mazda 6 with the V6, five-speed manual combination until 2004 model year.
Mazda officials tell us that is because there has been a bigger-than-anticipated rush for the highest-powered 6 with a manual (in yellow paint) and lesser interest in automatic four-cylinders. Who says sticks are dead here? As for the 2004 V6-powered 6 with five-speed manual, it goes on sale in July and should cost nearly the same as sold-out 2003s.

In related news, Mazda said Thursday that it will recall nearly 400,000 vehicles, including 50,000 made in the United States, because the fog lamp’s light bulb and socket may come loose and cause a fire. More than 30,000 MPV minivans made since 1999 were listed among the vehicles being recalled.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
