2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Traded 2dr extended cab Tacoma for Sport Wagon with 5 speed manual. Needed more interior room, but did not want gas guzzling, top heavy SUV or full size crew cab truck. This car is great! More fun to drive than my last sedan ('98 VW Passat 1.8t/5spM), which had excellent driving dynamics too. The Mazda corners flatter and has better feel in the steering than the VW. I'd like a slightly shorter throw on the shifter, but the feel is good. Don't look in the mirror and you'd think your driving a sports coupe. Has as much cargo room as most of the 5 passenger SUVs but it's a lot more fun to drive and gets better fuel economy.

Best Features

Yeah Mazda! - for offerring a V6/5spM in a wagon. You can have a comfortable, practicle, family vehicle that you actually look forward to driving every day.

Worst Features

Electroluminescent gauges automatically dim when lights are turned on. If you turn on lights during day for rain they're hard to read. Mazda needs to change this, or offer daytime running lights.
