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


Bought it new. Have 19000 miles. Rear engine mount had to be replaced under warranty and a TSB performed on the driver's side front end. New tires about a month ago. Other than that, nothing but oil changes every 2500 miles which is about every 4 months at $21.95 (dealer with coupon) This engine loves the freeway! 420 miles on a tank of gas. Good visibility all the way around, seats offer good support, good ergonomics, weak A/C (blows cold but fan lacks speed, must run at 4 to get some air but then it's too loud). Mostly happy with it. Good platform, rev it up and you will be rewarded. For "coat hangar in the mouth" smile though, try the Speed3.

Best Features

Hatchback. Practicality is the name of the game.

Worst Features

Home Link, 5 speed transmission, do something with the A/C,
