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


Did Mazda six stand for 6 miles to a gallon less than advertised? Used to own Plymouth Breeze that got on average 5 miles to gallon better. I've had it in the shop 3 times now for a rattle coming out of the dash when AC/defrost is on. Dealership still doesn't know what it is, and even tried to bill me for a $130 on the first look because they said it was leaves jammed up in the cabin air filter. Probably will look at a different make and will sell this off before I pay out my lease. Other than looking good, car seems a little less than average. For 10,000 miles, I wouldn't have expected to be in the shop 4 times to fix things.

Best Features

Exterior appearance. Dash board lights at night.

Worst Features

GAS MILEAGE. Getting between 14-25 miles to gallon. Usually drive speed limit to 10 mi/hr over. Lots of pings and pangs coming from dash area, a little noisy. Dealership said car needed 6,000-10,000 miles to break in and gas would get better. Well, I'm past that and my mileage is at its worst!
