2006 Mazda Mazda5Fivespeedrodeo - Davie, FL / Granite Falls, NC04/26/2010
The first thing to interest me is the available manual transmission. Mazda, Honda and Ford have some of the best manual transmissions out there. Mazda 5 combines a sport hatchback, wagon and minivan in the same vehicle. It handles like a sports car and because it's longer than the Mazda 3 hatchback highway stability is better without a toll in maneuverability. Mine is phantom blue with 6-disc CD changer and dealer installed tape player. I also tinted the windows from the rear doors back to give it the "SUV" look. I intentionally didn't do the front windows. I had mine four years and will probably keep it forever.
Good car for the money.

We were needing to replace our minivan, and had started to buy another one when we saw the Mazda5. For us, it seemed like a good fit. It would hold 6 people, got decent gas mileage, and it did not look like every other minivan on the road. ( Actually, I think it may be classified as a wagon.) It has performed well, and it is fun to drive. It has decent room for us, although the two back seats are a little short on leg room. Over all, I would advise any one looking for a people mover, to think about a Mazda5.

The Mazda5 combines a minivan, sport wagon and sport hatchback in the same vehicle and is a great alternative to any of the above. Mine is a stick shift, has a 6 CD changer and cassette player. With 17" wheels and typical "Mazda car" handling it's a lot of fun to drive. It holds six people, can hold a lot of cargo or any combination in between. The main power gadgets are standard.
