Did a quick interior detail. The dirt and grass and crud all over the mats and carpet and the dusty dashboard had become too much for me. Way, way too much. The outside is still filthy - covered in bugs and gravel dust from my trip to my friend’s family farm in the middle of nowhere. But at least the interior is clean now.

Two years on (I got the car October 10, 2015), the interior remains a nice place to be. Materials have held up well and there are no errant worn-out spots or flimsy-feeling materials. No odd squeaks or rattles, either.

As you can see, my son’s huge car seat fits pretty well. This is part of what caused me to trade my old car (2008 Mazda3 hatch) for the 6. The rear air vents are helpful, too. Not sure why it took manufacturers so long to start including them.

Couldn’t resist a couple of exterior shots even though it is filthy. 20,600 miles now.
