Mazda 5

I Love The Mazda 5. It Is Spacious and Very Effecient!

Good if you don't mind some issues

My wife and I bought this as a compromise between a wagon and larger van. What we love: Very space efficient inside and out; fits into compact spaces; lots of storage for the size; very reliable engine and transmission; sooooooo much cheaper than a minivan with better gas mileage to boot; Mazda also seems to actually listen to the customers and have made improvements to many of the issues that I will mention below. What we didn't like: Our model was an earlier version and had LOTS of suspension issues (four lower control arms at $500 per repair if not under warranty and constant bushing issues); ours also had a broken motor mount though I have talked to other owners and this seems to be an isolated issue; for some reason this car also goes through tires and brakes very fast. We also have a Mazda 3 and the tires generally last about 8-12K less on the 5 and the brake pads are replaced more often than normal as well. And no we do not drive the car hard... Overall we can live with a car that costs about $10-18K less than a minivan and give up a little bit of shoulder room. The car drives better than a true minivan and is much more efficient. Reliability is sketchy on non-essentials, but the drivetrain is bulletproof.

Not quite a Minivan

So folks who are looking for a minivan, steer clear. This is not a minivan and should not replace your thoughts of going that route. What this is, is a bigger wagon with sliding doors. You get the middle seat access of a minivan with the low ride, handling, and fun of a wagon. I opted for the 5 speed manual and couldn't be more pleased. The "R" gear is a little tough at times to get into but a little let up of the clutch and she goes in like a champ. I've taken my Mazda5 around some curves at speeds I would never take a true minivan and it carved the road comfortably with very little body roll. This is the perfect car for the dad that wants a little zip but still needs function. I would say if Mazda lowered this car a little bit from stock, used 6 gears in the 06-10 models and not 5, and allowed the Grand Touring and Touring models to use the manual, this would be the perfect ride. When someone asks you why you drive a minivan, promptly respond with "It's a microvan" or "It's a wagon." When they try to tell you sliding door equal minivan, politely remind them of the late 80's Nissan Stanza Wagon. I'm a car guy. I've owned turbo compacts, stick shift sport trucks, and beater cars. I've loved each one and I've driven each one like it should've been... driven hard.
