2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
The Mazda 6 Sport wagon is used to haul family kayaks and bicycles. It does this well. The roof height is just right for loading large objects onto the sturdy factory rack. No trouble with three bikes or two 17 ft kayaks or four adults. Have driven long distances fully loaded at high speeds. No problem. The Mazda is fun to drive. Very good handling.Only problem is poor fuel economy. Having a V6 is no reason for poor MPG.
Suspension. Handling. 5 speed stick. Interior space. Ability to work and play.
