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

Review

I bought a new 2004 Mazda 3 in 2004. From day one the brakes squeal when reversing (5 new sets have been renewed with no end in site - apparent reason, wet); transmission went at 48,000; Radiator chip dysfunctional and caused engine to overhead (1st time mis-diagnosed) second time (chip replaced). Have been towed 3 times before car reached 50,000 miles. While at servicing (same dealership bought at), car has received 2 door bang marks, engine was not cleaned of antifreeze from overheating, and recently black marks all over headliner when car was receiving new radiator chip.

Favorite Features

Look and handling of car.

Suggested Improvements

Well, I have lots of suggestions but mine is a lemon and nothing I would add would be acceptable.
