2005 Mazda 6 s Grand Touring 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Comfortable and sporty - much more fun
to drive than my old Odyssey (but I miss
the extra seats). Winter driving has
been a pleasant surprise - the traction
control really works. Factory finishes
are good - Michelin tires, leather
interior, etc. No problems in 14,000 km
of driving. A very reasonable ($50)
dealer service. The only "shortcoming"
is with cruise control - accelerating
with the steering wheel button often
causes the transmission to kick down to
a lower gear rather than simply
accelerating in 5th. Fuel economy is
not as good as expected but it runs fine
on regular gas - something that can't be
said for a lot of the other cars I
considered.

Best Features

Cover and screen for the cargo area are handy, as are the tie downs in the cargo area. The storage area (covered) on the front dash is handy too - easy to get to and keeps handfree sets, etc. concealled. Dealer added options are also surprisingly good - particularly the roof racks (very functional

Worst Features

Add the capability to add a hitch and pull a trailer - something that no wagon should be without (the owners manual specifically recommends against even a Class 1 trailer).
