2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

I drive an automatic Redfire Sport Wagon with black cloth interior and the Bose and Sport packages. Great car for the money. Handling is superb, predictable and smooth most of the time. The engine mated with the 5 speed ATX is smooth most of the time but generally under powered for a V6. It lacks the low end grunt most Americans are looking for. Instead it offers smooth delivery that feels nearly the same throughout the RPM range. The transmission also likes to shift a bit too soon and is a bit busy between 40-50MPH, a TCM update from the Mazda dealer fixes this gripe however.

Favorite Features

Looks and handling that lets you forget it's a wagon, six disc changer that sounds pretty decent for factory, loads of cargo space and the sport shift.

Suggested Improvements

Door and center console arm rests could use more padding. Cloth seats are already showing excessive wear for 3000 miles. Engine needs work to fix a very rich condition on the top end. This would probably improve the rather poor fuel economy as well. (18 city)
