Re-review after several years

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


Unhappy originally due to build quality and still annoyed by intermittent rattles in dash. Also thought the ride was too harsh; replaced the original Michelins (lasted only 33k miles!) with Hankooks and it was like getting a new car...still handles well but doesn't jar your teeth loose on every pothole. About 58K miles now and have done front brakes, tires, a battery and oil changes every 3k and this thing just runs like a champ. Still looks good and since they're not going to offer the new 6 in a wagon, I'm going to hang onto this thing - nothing else out there tempts me yet. First car I've had that I like more as time goes on. Normally by now I'd be itching to trade.

Best Features

Interior styling, very good AC, tan leather seats holding up well.

Worst Features

Mileage isn't so hot but I'm a leadfoot; auto tranny gets confused on sudden acceleration and hunts for the right gear to downshift to (leaving the engine racing but you not going any faster).
