Originally owning a 99’ Ford F-150, next an 06 Ram 1500, I was in the market for a car to show off, and ridiculously stupid tire clearance was what I wanted. But with low funds from hospital bills and unreasonable gas mileage, I looked for anything and a wagon was next up. I found Volvos and Volkswagens but the Mazda was the one that caught my eye, only because I never have seen a wagon version. It. Looked. Beautiful. So I scooped up the girl and long story short, it was the best decision I’ve made. Better gas mileage, still hauls my surfboards, fits all my buddies, and it handles amazingly. It is not in the best condition, but all of that will be fixed soon enough! Here’s my girl, and I will post more repairs and mods when I get the chance:

As many of you know, I have a thing for the wagons! I know there's a number of you out there but I don't see many photos of them on here so I thought I'd start a wagon photo thread. All gen's are welcome. Post updates and random shots as you update your ride.

SHOW ME YOUR WAGON!
Not sure if this is how I am supposed to post on this thread so I apologize if I screwed this up lol. This is my wagon which is still under construction lol please pardon her appearance as of now. 20190117_142218.jpg 20190117_142229.jpg 20190804_100822.jpg 20190903_162111.jpg 20191006_144335.jpg 20191122_170131.jpg 20200329_143629.jpg 20200329_143644.jpg 20200329_143708.jpg

Living in the U. S. of A. I had to buy two cars to get what I really wanted..

If the 3rd gen wagon was available here I'd sell both.

I drove one of those Buiks to see what it was all about. It would be a great long distance road car and super comfy. It felt a little less sporty than I'd want to replace my 6 wagon. How do you like it?

Your description is perfect. But of course there are people modding it. Lower springs, 19" or 20" wheels, Regal GS bumper, removing the cladding... Check out this guy's TourX in the pics below (not mine)!!!!

It's quick (6.2 0-60) and it corners very well, but it's a Buick so you are disconnected from the road. Sometimes that's very nice but it's not fun. The Mazda6 just feels lighter, like you can really throw it around, in a good way. The body is much stiffer on the Mazda6.

I've driven both on 1,000+ mile trips. I'll take the Buick. But local commuting (and I drive a lot) my Buick averages 25mpg, the Mazda6 31mpg for the exact same driving. I prefer the 6.

I used to own an '87 RX-7, and yet even though 26 years separated the two, my '14 Mazda6 feels the same. Amazing. Even the buttons for setting the clock hadn't changed!

What I want is a turbo AWD Mazda6 wagon!

The wagon still looks semi-clean and it looked nice sitting in the driveway today.

My 05 wagon was one of my favorite cars I'd ever owned. Whenever I run across one in the wild it's always a treat.
Well done to y'all keeping them on the road. We'd bought a cabin and wanted AWD, so I bought the 2013 Flex.
