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


Review

Bought a Mazda 6 wagon new in late 2004. Love the car except for 2 fatal flaws. It gets HORRIBLE gas mileage. At best 16 mpg in town and 21 on the road. Therefore I never drive it around town which is most of my driving. The mileage compares to a Hummer! The other fatal flaw is a super wide turning radius making city parking a real chore. It's very hard to get into tight urban parking spots. I've had 2 re-calls already in under 2 years while other Hondas/Toyotas I've owned never had any recalls. The car drives great, handles well and easily fits 4 adults and gear for a long road trip, but the awful mileage really bothers me!


Best Features

Roomy, good value for price, plenty of power. Rear seats fold completely flat making it easier to stow a bike or skis.


Worst Features

Horrible gas mileage, so much for reducing our carbon footprint. The low rider tires/wheels are a dumb idea. You will bump curbs and trash the alloy wheels the first time you drive it.

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


Review

This is a practical, fun, fast and economical car. No problems. Fuel economy has been 22 city and 28-30 hwy. The manual says gas tank should hold 18 gallons, but only holds 16.5. No wheel lock key came with the car, which caused surprise when time came to change tires. Not much range/warning when low fuel light comes on.


Best Features

Great comfort, storage and style. 5 speed (hard to buy these days). Very sporty.


Worst Features

Thicker, softer steering wheel. I was not able to add tow hitch!

Review

Was glad to move up from a Mazda 626 4-cyl. to this 6 cyl. model--no problems merging onto an interstate in this car! Have the 5 speed version. I call this my Volvo station wagon on steroids--it reminds me of the Volvo 245 station wagon I had years ago: solid, dependable, safe. But the Mazda adds: acceleration, handling, pizazz.


Best Features

First class design--everything is where it should be, within easy reach. Affordable for what you get.


Worst Features

Changing the time on the clock is a pain.

Review

This is the first Mazda I've owned. It's been a great car for the past 2 years. I love the performance and styling. I get comments all the time asking what kind of car it is. I've only seen a few others on the road. Mileage isn't great, but at 220HP, I don't expect a lot, especially the way I drive. I really like the internal components in that the vents close completely, the controls are easy, auto temp AC, seat heaters. There's tons of room when the seats are down. Just a great car.


Best Features

Sport Shifting, 6 Disc internal changer, tight leather, clean lines, steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Too much brake dust.

Review

I have owned my car for 18 months and have enjoyed the experience. Fun to drive and very sporty. Comfortable over the long trip. I just bought new tires after 43,000 miles as I plan to keep this one for a while longer.


Best Features

Folding seats, easy access to rear cargo area. Nice cover. Spunky V6 gets you down the road.


Worst Features

Auto locks - scan feature on steering wheel control - rear DC outlet.
