2004 Mazda 6 Hatchback i 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I"ve had this car since 2008 it had 178,000 miles on it now it has 250,000 mileson it. The still drives like it was new. The hatch back is so awesome and gives the car a sporty profile. I still get 29mpg with a 4speed AT. The car has more then pad for it's self in value.

Review

This car is sharp looking and hatchback is awesome. Gas mileage and lack of hp is poor. Had a lot of brake rotor problems and a wheel bearing out at 50,000 miles. Eats tires every 30k despite correct alignment and quality tires. Car has excellent paint quality.

Better fuel mileage, more power, better overall reliability, resale value

2004 Mazda 6 Hatchback s 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought the car very recently and have put about 200 miles on it and love the car so far. The handling on it for a front wheel drive wagon is superb for the price I paid for it ($9000) and the engine seems to have the power needed to haul the little bit of extra weight around all the time. Myself and my girlfriend have 3 kids between the two of us and we can all ride comfortable without a problem around town and still have enough room to pick up groceries if we need to. Traded my 02 xterra for better gas economy and a firmer ride. Didn't have a need for 2 SUVs


Best Features

Bose surround!, 4 wheel disc brakes, the wagon feature is a great thing to have for added cargo space, gas mileage over an SUV with all the room. The paint on the car seems to be of very high quality as well which is getting increasingly hard to find on any vehicle nowadays. Great car for the price!


Worst Features

the back bumper sits out a little farther from the hatch than I'd like and as most people have stated the turning radius on the wagon is really bad. other than that i have no complaints at this time.

2004 Mazda 6 Hatchback i 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

As a family we needed a third vehicle to cover our increasing transportation needs. We own a van and an SUV and thought a sedan would balance out the family vehicle situation. We bought this car after realizing that though many Civics and Camrys out there would certainly do, many were abused by their previous owners and made for a pretty shabby used car. The local Mazda dealer explained how Mazda owners tend to have a special bond with their car and treat it nicer, and after about a week with the Mazda6 I could completely understand why. I'll never buy from another car manufacturer again. Even though its a rock bottom base model, it still evokes some jealousy in my friends. They can't tell.


Best Features

Such a smooth ride, love the shiftable automatic transmission. Interior feels more like a sports car than a family sedan. Having a hatch but with sedan styling is perfect. Wish all cars were like that. Even though its 6 years old, it still gets about 27 mpg, much better than you'd expect really.


Worst Features

Very few. My only complaint has been that the side front grill pieces have a tendency to pop backward out of their holes (when i go through the car wash and such). They stay in a small pocket behind the hole, and can be easily retrieved. You may have some trouble snapping it back in though.

Review

Bought this car used with 20,000 mi. LOVED this car, how it drove how it looked, the amount of room. But after about a year every few months we had to replace something: the clutch, the shocks, tires (2x), and air box system. Finally the engine in the car blew due to a cracked seal that caused the oil to leak dry(the oil was changed every 3000 mi). the carpeting is coming off in the cabin area and the drivers side speaker goes in and out. So we are getting rid of the car (after taking a huge hit on the loan) and never buying another mazda.


Best Features

Loved the way it looked, very sporty. Loved to drive this car super fun.


Worst Features

made VERY poorly, I heard many other owners in our area with the same problems.
