A true zoom zoom car from Mazda with the 3.0 the car handles great and has plenty of pep to boot. Interior is well crafted and comfortable and the Bose sound system is tough to beat. If you want a zoom zoom car for not a lot of money the Mazda 6 is the way to go!

I've owned this car for 2 years and I was amazed how reliable it is even after 200,000 miles. I used for daily commute with no major issues. It is a simple and a reliable car that will no t fail on you during a interstate road trip. The interior and exterior are excellent for 2003 car, and it gas efficiency was ahead of its time back then. My favorite feature is 6-disk CD player. I load my entire Linkin Park collection and don't have to touch it for days.

Dependable car.

by from on May 25, 2017

Roomy interior and timing chain puts some worries behind. Reliable without all the bells and whistles, I will keep driving it until the wheels fall off.

This car is a great car to own while it runs correctly. It seems that about every 1000 or so miles i run into another issue. I purchased this car used with 100k miles and now have 110k on it and have had to replace the front control arms, the A/C, parts of the EGR system, and lastly the catalytic converters. Currently, I am selling the vehicle because of the previously mentioned issue. This car is a great car to drive and own if you are willing to put in a lot of effort to keep it running properly.

Great car for the $

by from California on March 1, 2017

Great motor with a timing chain for reliability. Looks great and very fun to drive. Dependable and good features for an older vehicle.

The Great Money Pit

After owning this car for not even a year, i have found to have many problems with it. Most of these problems are all electrical problems. I bought my 2003 MAZDA6 6s with 113k and 40k on the engine, but being In about 3,000 miles, I have replaced a coil pack, new alternator, new O2 sensor, mass airflow sensor, and multiple other things. It could just be that the stuff is getting old, but i believe this car is not the most reliable. Another downside to them is they have a ford v6 in them and i hate cross bred cars. The car drives very well though. The black leather interior is nice, the AC is always cold and the heat is great as well. The transmission is not the best even being at 116k.

Not worth it

I bought this car nearly a year ago and it currently has close to 150,000 miles on it (I drive A LOT). The first thing I noticed was a clicking sound when turning. After taking it to a mechanic I was told it was the CV joint and would cost about $450 to fix. Granted, it does have a good amount of miles on it but both of the cars I've had previous to this one have had more and have not needed a CV joint replacement. Another thing is that around 140,000 it has started to "kick" and shake when going up hills and also when idling for a minute or two. I have not checked into that yet but it can't be good. On the pro side I do like the interior design and the leather seats in this car are holding up far better than they did in my last car. All in all, I would not say this is a particularly great purchase.
