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


Review

Rides smoothly. Takes bumps great.
Awesome Bose sound system. Not fast
from the take off, but overall, quick.
Nice options. Would of been nice if the
homelink was more user friendly and the
buttons weren't so confusing. Came from
a Z28 to the Mazda 6.


Best Features

Definitly the sound system, comfort of the interior, and the cute look. I can see some suggestions for improvement, but overall, I have gotten a lot of compliments. Friends who drive Lincoln LS's think my 6 is nicer.


Worst Features

Increase the horsepower, and dear god, GET RID OF THE ANTENNA. Looks like a bumper car that has to run off the stick on the top. So ugly. Also, get some stock chrome rims!!!

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


Review

Scenario: Our 14 year old son had
outgrown the backseat of our 1997
Acura Integra GSR. We needed a mid-
sized sedan. My wife prefers to drive
a manual transmission and wanted a
little zip.

Possible Choices:Altima, Passat, 6s.
(Accord and Camry did not offer a
manual transmission w/V6)

Outcome: Although, the 6 does not
perform like the Acura, by any means,
it suited our needs. Adequate
acceleration, excellent handling and
braking for a car in this size and
price range, sporty appearance, and
price (MSRP was $5000 less than
comparably equipped Altima or Passat)
were the factors in making our final
decision.

Epilogue: My wife chose to keep her 6s
when I


Best Features

The handling, braking, heated leather seats are fantastic. The Mazda 6s is not every other car on the road. The ability to use regular gas.


Worst Features

Better acceleration and gas mileage. (The car has a lag in acceleration from a full stop.) My wife is fairly height-challenged (5'3") and finds the steering wheel does not adjust to the angle she would like because it blocks the guages.

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


Review

For evreything you get with the 6, it
with out a doubt is one of the best
values out there. I had an Accord that
a traded for my new 6 and the
comparisons are not even close. The 6
looks better inside and out and is much
more exciting to drive. The horses are
a little low but the smooth-fun drive
more than make up for the lack of
power. This may be the best investment
I have made on a vehicle. Bottom line,
Mazda has sold me, I will be back for
more. Very impressed!


Best Features

Interior. Love the all the extras at not a high price. Nice comfortable seats. Very clean European style dash. Bose stero sounds great. Exterior has a sporty exciting look witht the 17 inch low profile wheels and ground effects. The dual exhaust even on the 4 cylinder is sharp.


Worst Features

Could use more ponies under the hood. Other than that Mazda has hit a home run with this car!

Review

I shopped around in the price range of
20000 or less, and was surprised when
i came aross the new 2003 Mazda 6 hands
down I think it really gives the compa-
tition a run for the money, its style
comfort it seats a person 6'2 with
plenty of head room it handles the road
in hair-pin turns with no problem, very
fun to drive, love the manual shift just
tap the plus, or minus with no clutch
it makes driving a joy, and thats a
feature you would normaly see on more
expensive cars like maybe my sisters
bmw mazda has really took notice of
what the average consumer is looking
for, and they are delivering with 120%
I just cant say enough about this car


Best Features

the automatic manule shift, the instrament panel color at night makes it very easy to read the bushed metel center controls nice, the safety features, of air bags, I just feel safe and that mazda stands behind there work with 24 hour road service i like that


Worst Features

only thing i might change would be the cordaroy apolstery

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


Review

I spent about three or four months
researching cars and comparing the
specs and pros and cons of nearly every
mid-sized sedan, and I always came back
to the 6. The brakes are very
responsive as is the handling. For a
sedan it takes corners like a champ. I
have driven it hard and it shows no
signs of slowing down or wearing out.
All around a great car for those who
are family oriented but still want to
have a little fun on the road.


Best Features

I love the red display lights and the fact that they can be dimmed. The bright green lights in most cars now are annoying to say the least, but the red in the 6 is a nice touch. The Bose sound system is also a favorite of mine, it has a real clear crisp sound at any volume level.


Worst Features

THe only thing that I am not too keen on in the 6 is the fact that the seat heater only has one setting and after awhile it gets to be pretty hot, it would be good to add a couple more heating levels (maybe low, medium, then high).
