Review

Well maintained and taken care of 2004 red metallic Mazda 6 sport. I bought this car brand new. It has never been in an accident. It is a very comfortable car and with the 5 speed manual transmission it is fun to drive. It still looks really good and drives well. It is loaded with lots of upgraded features, leather seats, retractable sun/moon roof, Bose sound system,chrome trim etc.

Review

Suspension and steering held up well but that was about it. From the ceiling falling down, seats breaking, and dome lights and stereo displays not working properly to brake, cooling system, ignition and ac issues up to having to replace the engine at 50k (then second Mazda waranty engine started leaking oil at about 50k miles later), I have had lots of issues with this car and terrible dealer service. More problems with this one car than my previous 5 cars I have owned over the last 35 years combined. It surprises me, but some people don't have a lot of problems and some do.

Review

Worst car I ever owned. Pre-catalyst problems. I had to replace it twice - very expensive. Engine problems - throttle body replaced. Expensive as well. Broken power steering - expensive as hell. Broken CD-player. Poor A/C. Broken seat heating. Almost everything in this car breaks all the time.

Review

Since 07, my 04 6s(v6) has been strong. I bought it at ~60,000 miles. All maintenance done early except the spark plugs. Don't drive too long with a misfire/vacuum leak/hesitation. Lucky I had knowledge of precat failure prevention so I didn't find out the hard way like others...keep an eye on fluid level and color esp oil. Since about 90-100,000 miles I noticed the oil level drops a lil every 1500 miles which is normal on most vehicles. Don't trust oil change places, they only pour 5qts in, but this engine takes 6...oh and Honda seekers don't buy Automatic Accords, my wife's tranny died@100,000 miles...fluid drained and filled every 10,000 miles since 40,000 miles. 2004 Accord EX V6. Thx

Review

I bought this car 2 months ago for $3000 at an auction with 196000km on it, or about 129k miles.
There oil kept disappearing quickly and I didn't know where it was going.
After about $2000 in repairs and getting some tires and rims, I find out that the cars' engine is through.
It was burning oil rapidly, the reason for that was the piston rings being worn out, and the reason for piston rings being worn out was the catalytic converter melting and blocking the exhaust creating excessive back pressure.
Not to mention the EGR valve recirulating exhaust gases as well as other particles into the engine which also screwed the engine over.
Very piss poor design by mazda.


Best Features

the body design is beautiful, it looks better than 90% of the cars out there even though its 10 years old


Worst Features

poor engineering design, ford/mazda engineers should be fired over this.
