It has the feel of a sports car with the size and luxury of a sedan.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 s

The engine in this vehicle is amazing. It can get to 60 mph in under 5 seconds. With all that power it still provides a very smooth and controlled ride. The braking system is very punctual and absorbs the force when slowing down. If you can get past the noise when zooming down the highway the sunroof is one my favorite features this coming from a person who just owned a two-door drop-top. It's a excellent way to get some air without cranking the ac or letting down your window blowing things around the car. The location of the gear shift is great giving the car a more sporting feel with the size and luxury of a sedan.

Mazda 3, great performance

2004 Mazda Mazda3 s

I have not had any performance, reliability, comfort or feature issues. For the year 2004, there weren't a lot of electronic features as with the new cars of today. With regular maintenance, vehicle rides very well and with the speed limits in Texas being 70+ mph the performance is great.

Great gas mileage getting around town car.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 s

The car gets great gas mileage. It's a very dependable car. It also has a comfortable ride to it. I like the radio which has nice speakers and the interior is in excellent shape. Only thing I would say negative about 2004 model is paint oxidation on hood and top of the car.

Leather seats that wear very well.

2004 Mazda Mazda3 s

Never have had anything but normal maintenance on the car. Always reliable. Mazda has great cars and service. It is comfortable. Great gas mileage, good in the snow, rain and slippery roads. Good stereo system. Comfortable seating for four people. Would purchase again.
