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


Review

Purchased used with 56K on it. Love the handling and the styling. Different than the typical midsize car. I get a lot of double takes when driving it. Handles as well as my BMW 528it. Good size vehicle. Comfortable ride and good visibility. Only have had the oil changed, no problems yet. Plenty of get up and go, but the mileage could be better. I drive mostly interstate and have been averaging 26-27 MPG. I used to get nearly 30 MPG on the Bimmer, and it was bigger and heavier. It is noisier on the road, but this could be the tires on it. Two are OEM and two are different brand. I like the dash lighting.


Best Features

Size of the car, usefullness of the wagon. Handling tops the list. I own a Miata and you can tell it has the same heritage. Overall driving experience. Comfortable on the road.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. More adjustments to heated seats. One touch up and down windows all the way around. How expensive can that be? Some minor things on the heat/AC read out. Return to prior reading (ambient temp) after you change setting rather than having to do it manually. Auto open/close to S/R

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.

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.
