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


Review

I bought a 6S Sedan with every option except the Luxury pkg. and an automatic. The acceleration is excellent, always power when you need it, no matter what gear you're in. Corners like it's on rails! Ride is firm, but comfortable on all types of pavement. Interior is nicely styled. HVAC and Stereo controls are great. Bose 6-disc Changer is well worth it, nobody does it better! Seats are comfortable and supportive on long trips. Im summary, outstanding performance, great ride, comfortable interior, and a sport sedan styled like no other. BUY ONE NOW!


Best Features

Bose stereo Power moonroof 5-speed manual with V-6 Styling that stands out from the rest


Worst Features

Smaller turning radius

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


Review

Excellent car. Good acceleration, smooth ride especially at highway speeds, great braking, feels very solid, nice interior. Tons of space with the hatch. Don't just get the ABS, get the ABS (Security)package and you'll wind up with 8 air bags plus dual side and rear curtains.


Best Features

All those air bags and all those adoring stares.


Worst Features

Midnight Blue

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


Review

I had to write a review regarding this car. I have the automatic. I test drove competing cars like the Camry and Altima (the Accord and Galant were too ugly to be considered) and the 6 won hands down. The 6 looked better than all the competitors, had many of their optional features standard and blew them away with the space of the 5-door that still looks like a cool sedan! The warranty is better at 4yrs/50,000 miles with free rental cars and roadside assistance! The price I paid for mine was also less than I would've paid for the other boring cars that you see at every single street light!


Best Features

The interior and exterior. The radio controls on the steering wheel. The hatchback space. Standard sportshift automatic. The handling of the car and the pickup (once it gets going). Latches to fold down rear seats from back of trunk. Design of the seats. The list just goes on and on!


Worst Features

Only a couple of small issues with this great car. I got the top of the line Bose stereo and it sounds like the base stereo that came in my old Ford! Needs nav option like the 3. Mazda needs to market this car better because its sharp looks and useful configurations trump competition!

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


Review

We drove many other cars in simular class, and size. Drove the Mazda last, mainly drove it for a fun ride didn't feel it would live up to what we wanted in a new car. To our surprise it surpassed all of our expectations. We chose the four cylinder, for the fuel economy. It is a little down on power but at 33 miles per gallon the very little we give up is made up in fun, and style. It has more class on the outside and the best in class interior design. The handling of the car is incredibly nimble on the 17" rims and Michellin Pilottires. All it took was one drive after driving many other cars more than twice. Great car at a great price.


Best Features

Our favorite features would be the 40/60 split rear seat that is released individually by two handles easily located at the trunk opening. Also the Bose stereo system is excellent. Along with the controls for the stereo and the cruise on the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Find a way to add a turbo without the loss of fuel economy, and passenger eight way adjustable seat.

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


Review

This is my 2nd new Mazda. My 1992 MX6 was a piece of junk. I hope this car is built better. I have a 6i 5 door, auto,luxy package,6CD Bose. I ordered the car with roof and sercurity package , but Mazda could not fill that order. The roof and alarm were put in at the dealer. The gas milage is good. 28 mpg highway. The car is fun to drive and gets a lot of looks.


Best Features

Bose, Lots of room, red gauges, fun to drive


Worst Features

Fog lights should be separate from the main head lights. Doors should lock when car is put in drive. Needs a trip computer.
