2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent car. Good acceleration,
smooth ride especially at highway
speeds, great braking, feels very
solid, nice interior. Tons of space
with the hatch. Don't just get the ABS,
get the ABS (Security)package and
you'll wind up with 8 air bags plus
dual side and rear curtains.


Best Features

All those air bags and all those adoring stares.


Worst Features

Midnight Blue

2004 Mazda 6 i 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had to write a review regarding this
car. I have the automatic. I test drove
competing cars like the Camry and
Altima (the Accord and Galant were too
ugly to be considered) and the 6 won
hands down. The 6 looked better than
all the competitors, had many of their
optional features standard and blew
them away with the space of the 5-door
that still looks like a cool sedan! The
warranty is better at 4yrs/50,000 miles
with free rental cars and roadside
assistance! The price I paid for mine
was also less than I would've paid for
the other boring cars that you see at
every single street light!


Best Features

The interior and exterior. The radio controls on the steering wheel. The hatchback space. Standard sportshift automatic. The handling of the car and the pickup (once it gets going). Latches to fold down rear seats from back of trunk. Design of the seats. The list just goes on and on!


Worst Features

Only a couple of small issues with this great car. I got the top of the line Bose stereo and it sounds like the base stereo that came in my old Ford! Needs nav option like the 3. Mazda needs to market this car better because its sharp looks and useful configurations trump competition!

2004 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We drove many other cars in simular
class, and size. Drove the Mazda last,
mainly drove it for a fun ride didn't
feel it would live up to what we wanted
in a new car. To our surprise it
surpassed all of our expectations. We
chose the four cylinder, for the fuel
economy. It is a little down on power
but at 33 miles per gallon the very
little we give up is made up in fun,
and style. It has more class on the
outside and the best in class interior
design. The handling of the car is
incredibly nimble on the 17" rims and
Michellin Pilottires. All it took was
one drive after driving many other cars
more than twice. Great car at a great
price.


Best Features

Our favorite features would be the 40/60 split rear seat that is released individually by two handles easily located at the trunk opening. Also the Bose stereo system is excellent. Along with the controls for the stereo and the cruise on the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Find a way to add a turbo without the loss of fuel economy, and passenger eight way adjustable seat.

2004 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sports Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 2nd new Mazda. My 1992 MX6
was a piece of junk. I hope this car
is built better. I have a 6i 5 door,
auto,luxy package,6CD Bose. I ordered
the car with roof and sercurity
package , but Mazda could not fill
that order. The roof and alarm were
put in at the dealer.
The gas milage is good. 28 mpg
highway. The car is fun to drive and
gets a lot of looks.


Best Features

Bose, Lots of room, red gauges, fun to drive


Worst Features

Fog lights should be separate from the main head lights. Doors should lock when car is put in drive. Needs a trip computer.

2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I drive an automatic Redfire Sport Wagon
with black cloth interior and the Bose
and Sport packages. Great car for the
money. Handling is superb, predictable
and smooth most of the time. The engine
mated with the 5 speed ATX is smooth
most of the time but generally under
powered for a V6. It lacks the low end
grunt most Americans are looking for.
Instead it offers smooth delivery that
feels nearly the same throughout the RPM
range. The transmission also likes to
shift a bit too soon and is a bit busy
between 40-50MPH, a TCM update from the
Mazda dealer fixes this gripe however.


Best Features

Looks and handling that lets you forget it's a wagon, six disc changer that sounds pretty decent for factory, loads of cargo space and the sport shift.


Worst Features

Door and center console arm rests could use more padding. Cloth seats are already showing excessive wear for 3000 miles. Engine needs work to fix a very rich condition on the top end. This would probably improve the rather poor fuel economy as well. (18 city)
