Friend wants the Mazda6 as it is more sporty (everyone has an Accord or Camry he says) than the Ford Five Hundred the wife wants (she believes it safer as they have a child). There lies the dilemma. I told him I'd collect some opinions from here at GT. Fire away; I appreciate the help helping these folks. The prices are pretty close either way with the option list they want, BTW. TIA.
