2005 Mazda Mazda6 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.
Favorite 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
Suggested Improvements
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).
