Good vehicle for someone who has more than 2 kids. Also, very good on performance, particularly on highways!
AWESOME family car

My husband and I needed a car that would one day be filled with children. However, I wanted a vehicle that didnt' feel like a tank (i.e. SUV) and wasn't a soccer-mom wagon (minivan). Plus, we have 2 large dogs, so if there was SOME way that I could have a vehicle with kids AND pets, it would be perfect. And it WAS. I LOVE this car. The back 2 seats (3rd row) lay flat and the dogs chill there, and car seats for the middle rows. Air blows in the back area seperately from the front.
***ONLY annoyance- headlights don't come on automatically.
For years I drove a full size minivan and it was great. The downside was gas mileage and performance. After test driving the Mazda5, I fell in love with the handling and the well thought out interior. You save money on gas with out giving up too much space. The one area that could be better is the performance from the 2.3 liter engine. It does a pretty good job but when loaded it gets bogged down. Most of the Mazda 3 performance goodies will bolt on to this car so thats an upgrade path.
