Mazda 6 2004 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 6 2004 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mazda 6 2004 vs Honda Accord 2008: Which should I buy?
Until you described the condition I would have said the Mazda, but if the condition were only fair I would think twice about it. On the surface it’s the better option, but I would want it checked by an expert to get a true reading on the overall condition. The Honda could be a good buy, the mileage isn’t excessive for the age, but you have to think about the future and what could happen in the next 2 to 3 years.
Does the 2004 Mazda6 have an AWD system?
No, not in 2004, but a four-wheel drive model, the MPS, was introduced in August 2005.
10 per cent ethanol in Mazda 6
The recommended fuel for the Mazda6 is 95, while the oil companies claim E10 has a minimum of 94. Your car would most likely run fine on E10, but I wouldn't expect it to perform as well or give the same economy as it would on PULP.
Snow easy answer
WE CHECKED with Mazda and were advised that chains can be fitted to the Mazda6 Limited, Luxury and Luxury Sport models. They do not recommend fitting them to the Classic versions as the gap between the tyre side wall and suspension arm is not sufficient. One solution is to buy narrower wheels and tyres to get more clearance, but the clear message to anyone wanting to visit the snow is to check if your car can be fitted with chains before you hand over your cash on one that won't do what you want it to do.
Mazda 6 2004 Towing capacity
The Mazda 6 has maximum towing capacity of 1500kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.
