2003 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased the vehicle in July of '06 with just over 18,000 miles and was as happy as could be for the first year or so. The second year on the other hand was not so good, I felt as tho I was taking the car in once a month for something different it started with a squeaky driver seat then some recalls then some weird clunks then a defective starter and several other things. Once everything was fixed things were okay until the car reached 58,000 miles and decided that it would be a good time to blow up! According to the mechanics the piston rod snapped and blew two holes in the block. The worst part is I was doing about seventy on the freeway not even accelerating. $9000 later the car is running ok

Favorite Features

The interior is great, nice euro style gauges and steering wheel controls are great and the center console is spacious and perfect for an iPod. The body is very good looking with lots of aftermarket modification options.

Suggested Improvements

My suggestion is to make a stronger motor.
