Fun to drive, comfortable... concerned
By socalowner on


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


Cool to drive. Many compliments on the
Mazda6 sports package style. Good
handling & comfortable. Trunk has good
amount of space. My Mazda6 has good
acceleration when in the higher gears.
At times feels as if transmission is
trying to catch up, especially in the
slapstick manual mode. My concern is
how much quality the transmission has. I
have had problems changing gears in both
the manual and auto modes. I can't tell
yet if it is me getting used to the
sportamatic or if there is actually is a
problem. Still a great car.

Best Features

Favorite features include all of the additions that the Sport Package adds. I have the cloth seats and they are comfortable. Roomy trunk and interior. Great sports type of look on a "family car."

Worst Features

Lots of brake dust build up... don't know why. Seems common on the Mazda6. Maybe because of the larger disc brakes? Needs automatic locks when vehicle in engaged in drive and a little better gas mileage.
