2004 Mazda Mazda3 Sedan s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Overall a very nice car, fell in love with yellow. got it in manual with all options except navigation. Styling on this car is amazing no car is class comes close, ride is nice but more horsepower would be nice, although i am used to driving large sedans with 250+ horsepower. Handling is impressive and stiff ride has european feel.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling, rims, steering wheel controls, handling, leather steering wheel, interior lights.


Suggested Improvements

Needs a trunk release on keyless entry, stronger A/C, bigger rear view mirror and sunroof, I am 6'0 tall so a little more legroom, power seat with the leather seating, sound system is good but could be better, more horsepower.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 Sedan i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great acceleration and a tight suspension make this car fun to drive.


Favorite Features

The premium 6-cd premium sound system, comfortable ride, excellent handling, and overall the price to quality ratio.


Suggested Improvements

Although the interior design is excellent overall, I would replace some of the cheaper feeling elements such as the glove-box door, sunroof buttons, and seat adjustment levers.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 Sedan i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the 3i to get the price a little lower. I did have the Power package and 16" alloy wheels added. Aside from the slightly bigger engine and fog lights, the 3i is no different than the 3s. Its a fun car with great handling and performance.


Favorite Features

Steering wheel controls for radio and cruise are standard as well as cd player. Car looks good inside and out.


Suggested Improvements

Unsure how the glove box will hold up. It has enough room for an extra person but its craftmanship seems to be lacking.
