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


After owning a 2004 Mazda 3 for a little over two years, I am still impressed by its exceptional build quality, fun to drive nature, and great fuel economy and practicality. No defects or warranty issues of any kind. The car has survived a deer crash and a trip through a ditch in two different accidents. Body shops did a great job, and the car is still driving great. This is a car you don't get bored with very soon. Had the 30K service done a while back and everything checked out great. The tires tend to wear somewhat quickly, though. Replaced the original set at 27K miles with some Kumho Ecsta ASX all season tires.

Best Features

5 speed gearbox, hatchback practicality, wheels/suspension setup.

Worst Features

A little better fuel economy.
