We've owned this vehicle for almost 2 months and just returned from a week long trip to Florida. It has been much better on fuel mileage than the car it replaced and handled well at highway speeds. When we bought it, I was concerned about acceleration with the smaller engine, but that has not been a problem even with the entire family and the cargo area fully loaded. I am 6'2" and 230 pounds and the cockpit is roomy and comfortable for me. My only complaint is that the steering wheel is not quite as comfortable for me as my Explorer, but perhaps that will come with time. The third row seats are functional for very small children for short times, but would be uncomfortable for anyone older than 12 for a long trip. Overall I would recommend this vehicle.
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.
This car/minivan is an excellent choice for those who are looking for the economy of a car but the versatility of a minivan. Originally in the market for a minivan to go camping, road trips, flea markets, etc. The Mazda 5, has plenty of room to carry my 2 dogs and pretty much everything I need at the same time. It is the first minivan I have driven that is actually fun to drive. The gas mileage is decent for car but much better than what a minivan would have been. My only complaint is that the trim seem to be somewhat on the cheaper side. examples the plastic molding seem thin the padding in the seats could be more comfortable, outside tail-light had a small hairline crack that needed to be fixed. Pluses: fuel economy, room, driving fun minuses: quality of trim.
