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


I purchased my 5 door S with about 15K miles (2004 model). 5 speed, moonroof/6CD, ABS package, xenon/tpms, Winning Blue. Bought it for commuting with a little fun. So far my mileage is what I expected; 28-30 mpg in mixed driving. The fun-to-drive factor is outstanding! This car gets a lot of looks, while I have actually gotten my 3 kids in the back seat. I've owned a Protege before, and it was very reliable. If this model meets the reliability, with the added fun factor, I'm a Mazda customer for life. My wife is even learning to drive it.

Best Features

Ergonomics, supportive seats, gauge package, willing engine, smooth tranny, great looks, 17" wheels, ABS package.

Worst Features

OEM tires will only get 25-30k tread life, sensitive TPMS, remote hatch release, cheap looking manual shifter boot.
