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


Review

So, this is the first time I have EVER felt compelled
to offer an online review. I am 43 years old and
have owned 12 new cars, and this is by far the best.

GREAT looks, catlike handling, a very smooth ride,
it is very quiet and silky smooth. With incentives,
and out the door price at 23k invoice this is the
steal of the century.

Mine has everything but leather (any leather burns
your legs in summer, and is cold in winter, and is
slippery). The Lapis Blue is stunning when seen in
person. Manual transmission smooth and precise.

Gripes? Ha! Get real, go see for yourself. Wish list -
Nav as an option.


Best Features

Handling, smooth ride, quiet, it looks sexy as hell, smooth shifting, good stereo, automatic climate control, nobody can tell it is a hatchback, the Lapis Blue color,


Worst Features

Add a nav system

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


Review

We first test drove many other cars.
Nissans, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Volxwagon,
Acura, Honda. All were nice cars. Did
not want to spend over 30,000 dollars
for a new car. Last car we drove was
the Mazda 6 Sedan. Although equiped
with the 4 cylinder, and a manual
transmission, it drove and preformed
like a sports car when asked, and a
sedate fuel effitient compact when
needed. We went back and drove the
others, but the decision was made. All
that is left to say is.... What a great
car for a great price. It does all that
we ask, and acks as though we could
give it more if we needed it. Compact
car fuel economy, sedan comfort, sports
car feel. Nice work Mazda!!


Best Features

The rear seat fold down feature at the trunk opening. Sportscar cockpit feel. Four cylinder waiting to be driven


Worst Features

If it isnt broke don't fix it. This car is ahead of its time. the others need to catch up,

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


Review

This is my second mazda...We don't own
a SUV or truck but needed more cargo
room from time to time..this was the
right car for us...One word of caution
when searching for a Wagon with a roof
rack...It has to be factory
installed...don't let the dealer tell
you they can put it on after you buy
the car..IT CAN'T!!! those side roof
rack bars are too tricky when you add
in side/curtain air bags..this is per
Mazda headquarters...the cross bar of
the roof rack can be added on later but
not the other.one is permanant the
other is removeable...wish the dealers
knew the car better than giving false
info to the consumer


Best Features

large drink holders, 2 ac jacks, large gas tank, roof rack, big cargo area


Worst Features

arm rest is a bit short, wish it was a bit longer in front to rest my elbow on, power seats and fog lights should be standard

2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought my Mazda 6 with all the options
available and the car is quite striking
in Lapis Blue Metallic-a few
reservations though that everyone
should know about:
1. The center console (HOD in the dash)
cannot be modified with a dash kit,
etc. without extensive work- this means
that adding your own CD player, etc. is
VERY difficult.
2. There is considerable throttle lag
in the 5 speed version- the car does
not want to accelerate much until at
least 3500 RPM (on the highway though,
the car passes other cars very nicely)
3. Fuel economy sucks - expect to spend
$25+ a week on moderate driving
4. Sport package makes driving a bit
bumpy (but handling is exceptional)


Best Features

-Sport package adds considerable control to vehicle-60 MPH tight turns no problem. -Sharp looking car with a lot of space- especially with fold down rear seats. -Very fun to drive, with right combo of features, car can turn heads -Money left in wallet after paying for car(great value)


Worst Features

- Better fuel economy - Option to have fog lights integrated below headlights, not directlynext to them (there is space!) - Better navigation system option (similar to Acura's outstanding system) - Less expensive clear tailight kit ($400+ installed?Are you kidding?) - Less faux-titanium
