FUN -- after the throttle body was replaced
By libbyrae on


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


I fell in love on the test drive. All the fun interior toys, the spaciousness, the comfort, the styling, the quiet engine, the power! After a few months I noticed the engine lagged while it shifted gears, and it even shut itself off once. Not good. Then I took it in with all my complaints and they found a defective throttle body. If I had driven it much longer I could have done some serious damage to the engine. Now it's fixed and it's like having a new car again. I'm still in love. I tested it once in the semi-snowy/icy Cascadia Mountains in Oregon and the traction control system kicked in nicely. I'll soon be moving from Nevada to Toronto, Canada. Can't wait to see how it does in the snow.

Best Features

Dash layout, controls and red glow. 6 CD changer Bose system with acceleration level control. Lumbar support in driver's seat. Heated seats. Trunk cargo space. All around performance.

Worst Features

I wish the headlights would come on automatically at night like Toyotas.
