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


Bought the car new in 12/04. I agree that the car looks nice and is fun to drive. At 34K the transmission was replaced. Now at 36K the car wouldn't start! It has happened twice and the dealer(s) cannot find the problem (roadside assistance will only tow to the nearest Mazda dealer and will not tow back to the dealer where purchased even if its 12 miles farther). I love the car, but I can't zoom if it won't start.

Best Features

With the rear seats folded it has the cargo space of a small SUV. Controls on steering wheel.

Worst Features

Brake dust on rear wheels, more gears for increase MPG, more power/torque, remote trunk release along with one in the car, all wheel drive would be nice.
