Picking up 07 Sport wagon tomorrow
Found a good deal on an 07 Sport wagon VE, with mechanical problems (timing chain rattle, CELs and burning oil). Driving down to Oregon to go pick it up tomorrow. Been lurking the forum for a few days and checking out what to do / change. Found a $400 '07 Ford Fusion engine w/96k, so I'm gearing up to swap engines. Looks like the cargo cover thing is borked.
Plenty of cars in the fleet, but I needed something a bit larger as I love fishing and going out on extended road trips etc. I'm not much of a truck or SUV guy so Wagons were first on my mind. I had my sights set on an Lexus IS300 Sportcross, but sold before I got there and then looked at Protege5s and Mazda3s before finding this 6 wagon. I have to say I think Mazda has done a good job with the looks. Combined with that, the 6speed auto in this '07 (I needed one car to be Auto) and power had me sold. I was surprised how many I found that were manual though! Does seem like there are a boat load of '04 wagons around...I have to say the wagon definitely needs the rear spoiler installed!
Color of my car is Tungsten Gray and has dark grey cloth.
