2004 Mazda 3 s 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I only have a few hundred miles on the
hatdchback so far, but I'm very happy
with it so far. The power of the 2.3
will certainly surprise you- its very
quick. The car is quiet, very smooth
running and it handles very well. The
ride is what I'm used to in my 626-
not mushy, and perhaps a bit tight,
but that's what I want. The manual
trans is a delight. The gears are
just where they need to be, ratio-
wise, and the shifter is smooth and
sure. Seems like the best deal under
20K, and I've looked at and driven all
the competitors these last few months.


Best Features

2004 Mazda 3 s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is fun- very speedy for a 4
cylinder. Good suspension compared to
the Civic SI. I can't figure out why
all the dash lights keep coming on...
airbag and then check engine light?


Best Features

The auto/manual transmisson


Worst Features

Better air would be good, but the warning light issue has got to go. We have a mechanic in the family and he blames it on the fact it's a new model.... but I don't know!

2004 Mazda 3 s 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Overall a very nice car, fell in love
with yellow. got it in manual with all
options except navigation. Styling on
this car is amazing no car is class
comes close, ride is nice but more
horsepower would be nice, although i am
used to driving large sedans with 250+
horsepower. Handling is impressive and
stiff ride has european feel.


Best Features

Exterior styling, rims, steering wheel controls, handling, leather steering wheel, interior lights.


Worst Features

Needs a trunk release on keyless entry, stronger A/C, bigger rear view mirror and sunroof, I am 6'0 tall so a little more legroom, power seat with the leather seating, sound system is good but could be better, more horsepower.
