Manual Fun: 2004 Mazda 6 Sport Wagon
We’ve been a fan of the styling of the Mazda6 since they hit showrooms for the 2003 model year, and the wagon is an example of what a Japanese family car can and should look like — are you listening Toyota/Honda? Power comes from either 4-cylinder or V6 gasoline engines, which were both available with 5-speed manual gearbox. Find this 2004 Mazda 6 Sport Wagon offered for $2650 in Broadway, VA via craigslist. Tip from Art C who says: I don’t recall seeing very Many of these wagons on the road when new. Today? Never… its got a stick and a sporty demeanor, for $2500, cmon!

A clean wagon for $2650, what’s “Ew.” about that especially in today’s used car market? I’ve never driven the 6, but the Mazda 3 had handling that felt sporty and I’ve heard lots of praise for the 6 as an “adult” version of some of the sportier cars out there. Seems like 100% win for the buyer as long as it doesn’t grenade right after they buy it.
Even if you get only 1 year out of it, it’s still a deal.
These are pretty good cars, and great wagons.
I had the auto version for two years, v6, 220hp, great handling, quick, good seats, spacious, nice sunroof, sounded good, 27mpg highway. Great medium wagon, good in snow also. Traded it in with 180k.
Make sure the wiring harness has no issues otherwise rather reliable.
That’s a handsome wagon. (just not a fan of white at all…. and the high mileage). V6 with stick. Yes please.
