You are in the Wagons
What is this discussion about?

I love my 1971 Datsun 510, but it's just too old now. The 510 is a good little mule in that you can lift up the rear seat bottom and fold down the seat back for a 100% flat cargo area. Great for moving small furniture or lots of stuff.
I recently bought a Scion xB, which I also love, but the one major drawback is the lack of cargo area. Also, the rear seats don't fold down all the way flat.
I would have been looking at a Nissan wagon if they sold any here! I really like the Nissan Cube, but they have never offered it here. I'm guessing that re-engineering the car to left -hand drive just to compete with the xB is too much effort for Nissan. What happenned to the little fuel economy cars they made that made Nissan popular here in the US? Now they are selling the Artmada and the Titan, which is so far from the 510 and 521 pickup that I can barely believe they made my old 510 beater wagon.
Bring on the Cube!!!

I wish BMW would sell the new 335 version of the wagon in NA. Better yet, the new M3-based wagon when it comes out (if ever)...not that I could afford that one Not to forget, 550 and M5 wagons if someone were to fancy a bigger wagon.

Here's my question - the only luxury or near luxury wagons you can find are from European Auto Makers (Mercedes, BMW, Saab, Volvo, Audi, VW, etc...). Why do American auto makers insist on compormizing with Crossover vehicles? There are plenty of SUVs out there if you really want one, Why not offer a true wagon? I'd love to se Cadillac ditch the SRX, and put out a CTS or STS wagon. How about a Lincoln MKZ wagon?

Sorry, can't get over the Magnum's rear-sloping roofline. I'm sure it's fun to drive and all, but I can't get around that one feature. It just doesn't have the same appealing overall shape as the Charger. Besides, it' a DODGE!
#73 of 106 What's the best wagon with 5 spd manual today?
Feb 16, 2007 (11:42 am)
I am looking for a vehicle for work and as the main family car that can also transport a large dog. I am looking at Subaru Outback, VW passat wagon-But mostly I need to hear if anyone is happy or miserable with their choice. Please share! Is the Outback too small for passengers? Is the VW too repair prone? What else is out there?

I would love to see the JDM Odyssey (Japan Domestic Odyssey) offered in the USA at Accord prices and make it available in the 4-cyl engine.
I would also like to see a wagon based on the USA Honda Accord or the Toyota Camry.
I don't know why Honda or Toyota stopped offering station wagons. The last Accord Wagon ('97) was also very good looking.
#76 of 106 A Buick LaCross wagon would be nice

so would a Ford Fusion/Milan.
I own a 2005 Outback and just purchased a low mileage 2000 Volvo V70 which is OH SO COMFORTABLE (unlike the Outback)
I love wagons!!!
