If we’re honest, most people don’t need an SUV. At most a roomy station wagon will do just fine. If indeed it’s true that a wagon is good enough for most families, what is the car nut to-do if they must own a station wagon designed to haul the family while also providing some reasonable driving thrills? Look no further than this list of used station wagons for sale on Ebay right now.
Honestly, can you think of a cooler used station wagon than the CTS-V? The combination of unique styling, a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine and the sort of swagger only a Caddy has makes this one mean wagon. This example is on sale with a “buy it now” price of $41,000 with 52,123 miles on it.
This is potentially the perfect car for driving down the Autobahn while hauling the family dog and your screaming kids. With a 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine, this wagon produces 515 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque that propel the car to a top speed of 155 mph. Oh, and don’t forget that this is a rear-wheel drive station wagon, one of the last AMGs that will let you do a burnout…This example is on sale for $66,950 with a little of 25,000 miles on it.
We’re going from one end of the used Mercedes spectrum to the other. For sale is a ‘83 Mercedes station wagon that you’ll be able to drive until the day you die. Right now the car has over 270,000 miles on it but for a diesel powered Mercedes of this vintage, that’s nothing. Sure this example (not pictured above) has some dings and dents, and it might give off a strong diesel smell when it starts up, but this car will run forever. Plus, these cars were imported in limited numbers, so you won’t see many of them on the road.
This Woody would make a great Sunday cruiser.

The seller wants $52,988 for this mid-century station wagon.
