2003 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I bought my Mazda in 2003 when it first came out. I loved the feel, the sleek look, and the "zoom zoom" sound when I accelerated. It's now 6 years later, and I have enjoyed the car but will not buy another Mazda. There have been many recalls, and I went through the cooling/heating problems (i.e. fan kept running when engine was turned off, heater quit working once, etc.) I have never been satisfied with the heating/cooling. There is a huge kickback when the transmission shifts from 1st to 2nd gear. Throttle went out, oil pan replaced, new radiator, new water pump--you name it. I had a repair for $1,000 in January 2009.

Best Features

leather seats, moonroof, heated seats/mirrors

Worst Features

The interior/exterior design is good. Work is needed under the hood (where it really counts!)
