Used Mazda Mazda5 for Sale
About the Mazda Mazda5
If you tend to think of minivans as being too large and cumbersome to enjoy driving, then maybe you've never seen the Mazda Mazda5. This unique minivan features a compact design that offers the utility and maneuverability of an SUV with the space and family-friendliness of a traditional minivan.
Specifically, the Mazda5 offers standard three-row seating for a capacity of up to six passengers. This innovative design, combined with convenient standard features like keyless entry and automatic climate control in its 2015 model year, makes the Mazda5 an excellent choice for growing families who aren't quite ready for a full-sized minivan.

Reviews for Mazda Mazda5
Great economy minivan
Lots of space, comfortable, and durable for a small cheap car.
- Interior Space: It's no luxury vehicle but it is comfortable even for a 6 foot plus driver or passenger on long rides. It also has lots of room in the back with the seats down
- Fuel Economy: For a six seating minivan it gets great gas mileage. If you drive it softly and shift in low rpm it will get in the mid 30s on the highway. It doesn't like to go much above seventy though so if you want to save fuel go the speed limit.
- Ride and Handling: It turns really well and has low gears in the manual version so it is a pleasure to drive even when you need to tight and fast paced streets in MA
- Cabin Noise: it's a bit noisy on the highway and you can't keep the rear windows open without the fronts open or it makes a excruciating reverberation.
- Cost to Maintain: The cost is not that bad but if you do maintenance yourself there are a number of stupid designs that make simple repairs a fair bit more difficult if not impossible.
- Power: When empty it takes off like a jack rabbit with the low gear ratios in the manual version but with a few hundred pounds onboard accelerating becomes painful.
The minivan for people who care about driving.
It has great handling, utilitarian interior, and while gas mileage isn't great, it's better than any other minivan. Its reliability means that, aside from gasoline, cost of ownership is low.
- Ride and Handling: It's a Mazda, and based on the Mazda 3.
- Value: Bigger minivans quickly get much more expensive.
- Cabin Noise: Mazdas are not known for being quiet inside.
Love my Mazda5
Pros: 1. Excellent handling in rain. 2. Great room for family and pets. 3. Folding third row. 4. Many different audio options (FM, AM, CD, USB, Sirius) 5. When you back into your garage door because you forgot to open it, the car will not get damaged. Oops. Cons: 1. Not a lot of storage space between driver and passenger seats. 2. Too many features for kids to play with and ask about. 3. Windows roll all the way down in the back, resulting in children yelling out the window at their friends when leaving school. 4. Picks up speed too quickly on the highway. 5. Brakes too well.
