metromazdaman, what is your souce of information? ALL of the other information trickling out says thay there will not be a 5-door. You yourself admitted that you haven't received the information yet, so I think you're just giving your opinion that they should offer the 5-door. Like I said, ALL sources say that it's gone after 2008. As you can clearly see here, the Mazda6 5-door is discontinued:

I suppose I am giving opinion regarding the 5-door. It's all speculation at this point, as Mazda is holding their cards close to the vest. I do plan on attending classes and dealer meetings on the '09 6, and I'm checking Mazdastate for updated product information on a regular basis. I would be somewhat surprised to see the 5-door dissapear, though because the 6 is going through a growth spurt and there are no other 5-door/liftback/hatchback models in that class (as far as I know the new Malibu no longer offers a hatch), it wouldn't be a shock. I suppose I based my opinion on the strong sales in previous years of the 5-door. It would be a shame to see it go (I was somewhat crushed when the sport wagon was nixed), as it offered almost the same lines as the sedan, with great cargo flexibility. Only time will tell.

I would say it is simply wishful thinking on your part, not any sort of a reasonable opinion.
It does not seem to be speculation at all. When the Mazda ordering instructions say it is discontinued for 2009, it seems pretty clear that it will be discontinued.
Now, maybe it will be back the following year, as they also did not initially offer the 5 door in the current model.

There are no ordering instructions for the 2009 Mazda6 yet. Allocations are open until March for the 2008 Mazda6, sedan only. The 5-door allocations closed last month, and we all no there is no wagon for 2008.

I had my heart set on the 2009 5-door Mazda6 and I'm not going to wait for anyother year, so I guess I have to shop elsewhere. Currently looking at the Imperza WRX are maybe the VW GTI 5-door (with extended warranty of course). Maybe even the Mazd3 5-door

If you were going to look at the GTI and WRX, I would say you owe it to yourself to look at the Mazdaspeed3, unless you are looking for an automatic tranny.

I don't think edmunds is in the habit of making this page 6 months before the car is available...the new 6 pic is there too (although it could be that of the euro one)
Does it mean they already have one, will have one real soon or is this just wishful thinking?!?
