I purchased my 2009 mazda5 sport 2 yr ago. I hated it when looking online, but when I got to carmax, it was the only car I drove and I baught it! The seats could be a little more comfortable, but they arent bad. 3rd row seat is not for older kids but perfect for younger kids. Love the interior layout out of the dash! When not fully loaded, it has some get up and go for a 4 cylinder. Mine has a sunroof as well which I love. Its like a mini, mini van! My mazda5 also holds to the curves at a faster speed. Its got the room of a sedan but the sporty look as well. Love my mazda5, think ill her around a while!!
The Jury is still out
2006 Mazda Mazda5 - 08/17/2012
Had to take it to the shop twice in the first 30 days. Once for a A/C Compressor going out then again for a Thermostat, Leaking A/C and replacement stabilizer bars.
The car runs well for now, but I am worried I made a mistake choosing a 6 year old car. CarMax has been great and stands behind their work.

I love my 2006 Mazda 5! I didn't go to CarMax to buy any particular type of car, but when our salesman drove it up for us to check out I fell in love with it. The 3rd row seating that folds down is great for my family of 6. When all of us need to go somewhere we all fit nicely, but when only a few of us are going somewhere we fold down those last 2 seats and have lots of cargo room for storage. Wish I had known about the Mazda 5 years ago when my children were little.
