2004 Mazda 3 s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is fun- very speedy for a 4
cylinder. Good suspension compared to
the Civic SI. I can't figure out why
all the dash lights keep coming on...
airbag and then check engine light?


Best Features

The auto/manual transmisson


Worst Features

Better air would be good, but the warning light issue has got to go. We have a mechanic in the family and he blames it on the fact it's a new model.... but I don't know!

2004 Mazda 3 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just purchased this car a month ago
and I am impressed. This car has a lot
of cool features for its price range.
Gas mileage has been about 28 mpg in the
city! Sticker states 25 mpg in city and
32 on the highway so I can't complain.
The car rides much better than the
focus, or civic. I purchased a standard
and have to say that I love the smooth
easy shifting. I do wish the drivers
seat had more leg room. The center
console gets in the way of the right leg
and the gas peddle seems to be to far to
the right. I also wish that the car was
a little more dent resistant. Overall I
would highly recommend the Mazda 3 for
any one in the market for a compact car.


Best Features

Great suspension for a car at this level. Radio contols on the steering wheel is a nice touch. Easy shifting allows smooth starts. Comfortable seats and nice looking dash. Engine has plenty of power and gas mileage has been great.


Worst Features

Center console needs to be re-designed to allow for more driver leg room. Side panels need to be more dent resistant. I wish the gas tank was a little larger. I believe it is 14.5 gallon capacity. A 16 gallon tank would cut down on trips to the pump.
