Not a wagon for wimps
By Zooming on
Vehicle
2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
This is close to a sports car for young families or 4 adults. The Teutonic suspension is stiff, seats are hard, the ride is firm-to-harsh. The steering is precise, very sensitive to input, and has good road feel. A blast to corner, flat and adhesive. Acceleration spirited once the engine winds up. The auto/manual shifter is no substitute for the real thing: too much automatic (with various lags, limits, and early upshifts) and too little manual— encourages pussy-footing. Tunnel vision to the rear. Compared to other wagons this could be a 10 (7 for cargo space). Don't know yet if improves on mediocre reliability of previous 626 model.
Favorite Features
Vim and vigor. Great handling, you won't notice it's a wagon (except in the rear- view mirrors). No loose tail-wagging. Good cargo mat available, but nothing to cover the rear seat backs when lowered. A sports car with really useful space. Made in Michigan by Ford UAW.
Suggested Improvements
Deepen rear window for vision. Add cornering lights and tighter turning. Lengthen seat cushions. Center stack looks like a cheap "stereo." Add grocery hooks & protection for rear seat backs when down. Skip foglights: don't work independently of headlights! Make rear step plate standard.
