2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Bought new in 04. 60K miles so far. Replaced all 4 tires and brakes and changed the oil regularly. Luckily no big problems. It's a good looking car that's fun to drive. I have the sport package with the automatic tranny (wish I got the manual). I like the car but the rear tires get cupped if you don't rotate them often enough. You also have to be careful washing it that you don't break off the cheap antenna (oops). When she's clean she gets lots of looks. There is also a little hesitation with the automatic tranny when you punch the throttle and it's very annoying. But still, a nice family car that doesn't look like one.
Styling and ride comfort.
Fix tranny hesitation, improve warranty to be more in line with most imports (10 years 100k miles), get rid of rooftop antenna, hmmm, that's it I guess.
