Fun little car!

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


I must confess that I got my 6 with the 5 speed auto. It is still a fun car. The V6 is very smooth but will start barking at about 4,000rpm. The car is fairly linear through the turns with great steering feel the whole way. The transmission has a tendency to hunt for gears. In two years I have done nothing more than routine maintenance every 6 months - a dream compared to my last car. I still have not gotten over how pretty this car is inside and out. With the hatchback design it swallows everything we need to carry. Gas mileage! It is rated at 19/26, but in mixed driving I never seem to do better than 18 or 19. Interior is comfortable but wind noise is abundant. Opt for the Bose!

Best Features

Love the smooth engine and exterior design.

Worst Features

V6s should be better on gas than this. The manumatic is a waste of time. The computer will override you left and right.
