I just bought a 2004 Wagon with an Auto Trans
 
The guy was asking $2,000 for an 04 Wagon I offered $1,000 after a few days of thinking he accepted my offer, 197,000 kms Auto, 1-key wit remote, new tires, Oil changed and tranny fluid changed a few weeks ago. Body in nice condition, Interior perfect.

I drove the car home on the hwy ran nice, my only complaint it is a bit gutless. The engine is the single port engine runs smooth as silk.

Question: How many speeds is this auto trans.

So do I, but for the price if I do drop a valve I think I can sell the wagon for at least $500 Still a cheap ride in the end.

Thanks for the answer. This tranny shifts so smooth I an having a difficult time feeling the shifts. The seller told me that he had no intention of selling till he got a company truck so this wagon was kept in good repair

Nice buy, those SPI can scoot, but then again I wasn't hauling around the larger ass that the wagon has.

I wish you luck with it, I got a good 160K out of mine. Do you have any plans for it, or just a daily?

I am retired I have a small snowblower Lawnmower repair business, I will be carrying tools to customer homes. I estimate around 6k kms per year. Over-all the wagon looks solid. I was aware of the engine that is why I low-balled the seller.

Nice. I got a wagon just like yours except mines a 2000 for $450 bucks. All it needed really was an ignition tumbler and rear shocks and bushings. I did put some other items but it runs pretty good. Shifts fairly well. Its a nice ride.

They can carry a good amount of stuff for there size.

I had an '02 wagon that got up to 290K miles before I had an accident and totaled it. Up to that point it was running like a Swiss watch.
