Are Ford sedans REALLY disappearing? 2018 Mazda6 | Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #149

Are Ford sedans REALLY disappearing? 2018 Mazda6 | Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #149

To borrow from Mark Twain, reports of the death of the Ford sedan have been greatly exaggerated! We discuss this surprising news, and how a lot of the media coverage has gotten the story wrong. We give our impressions of a borrowed Mazda6 we drove at our track. We wrap up this episode with viewer questions about swapping out your seasonal tires, low-speed AEB, and if there is any true replacement for the Mazda5 micro van.
