2005 Mazda 6 s Sport 4dr Sport Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


I've owned some amazing cars, mostly BMWs, but I was starting my own business and a family. The 6 sport wagon provided sport sedan handling in an affordable, reliable package. It had some minor problems while still under warranty, such as needing two new stereo head units, but has since been reliable. It drives wonderfully and I love the 5 speed manual. The turning radius is awful. Low RPM acceleration is pretty bad; there wasn't a need to gear it like a 4- cylinder. It's a fun highway cruiser and obviously does very well on corners. The quality of your tires will make a huge difference with this car. Sadly, there are no more sport wagons being produced by Mazda in the US.

Best Features

Handling, styling, reasonable performance and economy. A good overall value.

Worst Features

Bring the Euro wagon to the US, preferably with the diesel. Poor turning radius. Poor power at low RPM.
