    I have had several Ford Escort wagons, a Suburaru Legacy and now an older Honda wagon. Any of you Aussies drive one of these Honda Stream's?

    But, I hear those will not be coming to the States but maybe next year an Accord version - more of a crossover. But, any word on these?

    I really like the economical and aestetic looks to the Stream. Does that mean I have to move to Australia?:dunno

    US gets the Crosstour for 2010, which does not look like the photo above at all. For 2011, Honda has confirmed a wagon version of the TSX. No word on drivetrains...

    Anybody remember those Volvo ads from the 80s?
    The ones with the 7 series turbo wagon gone racing?

    yea, thanks for the prod...

    That is butt ugly. The TSX looks something like the Mazda I guess.

    I really like the lines on this car on craigslist...

    Had a neighbor (in south dakota, of all places) with a black T5R of that vintage. Every now and then he'd let it rip in 2nd gear past the house, unreal.

    note that I said 'want'. :lol3

    I'd settle for a used 2.4i. They are built on the euro focus/mazda3 platform, pretty reliable supposedly.

    I hate that all the small hatches are hatches, and not wagons. Mazda3, Matrix, etc.

    A civic wagon would be about perfect, actually. They probably sell them elsewhere.
