2004 30,000 mile review
By longtermtester on
2004 Mazda 3 i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
After owning this car for almost 2 years I have noticed a few things.. First of all when I got the car I assumed that over time the steering and suspension would lose some it's tightness and precision. This has not happened. The car handles like it did the day I purchased it. I'm still not sure how I paid $20G Canadian and got this level of handling. My own fear stops me in a fast turn. Not the car. Very smooth. Secondly, when I bought it I was worried about the reliability and craftsmanship of Mazda vehicles. So far, only the regular maintenance has been performed. So to wrap this up; 2 years, fun to drive, no problems. Great car!
Handling. Decent power. Fuel economy is reasonable. Price; VALUE for money. Feels like a 30 thousand dollar car.
AC a lil underpowered. M/T - hard time finding reverse on cold days?
