2003 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Bought the 6 in a pinch when our other car died. I wanted an 06 Civic but was too expensive. I put off testing the 6 but when I finally did (5 cars later), I was pleasantly surprised. Great acceleration, very roomy, comfy interior, huge trunk, "zoom zoom" and excellent handling. Only had it for a year and a half, normal maintenance. Had an issue with a dirty throttle body (seems to be common) which was easy to clean myself instead of paying dealership. Last week, my drivers' window stopped working so I'm trying to figure that out. Otherwise, have been happy with my "on-the-fly" purchase, since it wasn't what I wanted originally. Good family car, and sporty-looking

Best Features

Huge trunk, A/C is always cold and I live in FL where summers can get to be 110*, Mazda (read: excellent) handling, quick acceleration, fun sport-shifter, I like the red/black gauges, sporty-styling with the potential to look better with aftermarket parts

Worst Features

Stereo/speakers could be better, seems to have been a lot of recalls, nearly impossible to change headlights yourself and dealer charges major money. Also, fuel economy is great on the highway but in the city it's way less than comparable models (Accord/Camry/etc)
