Yes I would if you're looking for a car that's fuel efficient easy to drive and a head Turner this is the one for you. People are surprised when you tell them it's a mini van . Until you show them the third row seating . I don't think they even notice the doors.

I've own many cars in the past. I had a Corolla, a Civic, a Kia Rio and a Subie WRX and I'm impress with this one. Besides the seating capacity of a compact SUV, and a van like door access, this Mazda has an impressive handling. Yes, HANDLING; It corners like a car, a sporty kind of car. It accelerate quick enough to cut through traffic,and overall drives like a compact vehicle. It has enough power seat all six people and still has the power to accelerate quickly for you to enter through traffic safely.
Overall this is an impressive car and just a great small family vehicle.
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.
