A can compare quality to that from top German car makers. Never got broken so far. After 2 years interior looks almost like new.

Poor reliability with constant problems on oil consumption and turbo. Well known issue with this car which Mazda are aware of.

Ours was an early build model and experienced many powertrain issues within the first eight months, with the car spending more than three weeks cumulatively sitting at the dealer waiting for various parts over the course of two months.

2014 4dr Minivan 157-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It's not a Honda or Toyota, but it's also not a Dodge. One alternative considered was the Dodge Caravan, but a quick look at the numbers spooked me. Talking to actual past owners killed the deal. I wanted a keeper.
2010 4dr Minivan 153-horsepower 2.3L I4

Recommended by Consumer Reports for reliability
2009 0 No major repairs in the first 6 years/100,000 miles. Bought as a used rental car at 30,000 and have only replaced rear shocks (OEM's leaked out after 50,000 miles).
2008 4dr Minivan 153-horsepower 2.3L I4

Hoping it will hold up better than an "American" car.
2006 4dr Minivan 157-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I liked that it is made in Japan, which in my previous experience has resulted in very high quality construction and a lack of defects and problems down the road.
2006 4dr Minivan 157-horsepower 2.3L I4

Typical Mazda reliability: durable and inexpensive to maintain over a long period of time.

Dash has a high-frequency rattle/buzz on deceleration, accessory belt squeels constantly in the rain, tires are visibly wearing away at a quick rate

Replaced the rear suspension twice, front suspension once. Know Mazda 5 problem, Mazda is doing nothing about it

OEM tires wore out < 35,000 miles, transmission fluid needed flushed at 40,000 miles

Plan to spend lots of money on suspension components and tires. It's not just that the bushings get noisy (see lots of other reviews), but the components wear out quickly and are extremely expensive. This, of course, also leads to premature tire wear (and you are already wearing out tires quickly because of the extreme negative camber settings in the rear suspension). Yes, it handles well, but is it worth the bill$$$
