Why the 2009 Mazda Mazda5?


The Mazda5 does not drive like a mini van, or even a compact sedan. It feels sporty, zips around curves, and accelerates nicely from a full stop.

Price or payments

Can get a full load of options for around the same cost as the base of models with comparable size and quality.

Fuel economy

Better than our previous mini-van, mostly because of size. We drive it harder, so some of that advantage is lost :)

Exterior styling

The GT "sport" trim is rather nice. Still looks like a mini-van, but a mini-van with style.

Feature availability

Heated seats, leather, AC, moon-roof are all nice. My son likes the leg room in the middle row.

Why Not the 2009 Mazda Mazda5?

Rear seat room & comfort

The back seat is made for very small folks only. The middle row seat belts are placed somewhat far back.

Dealer practices

Sales experience and follow up is fine, but service is painful. Lies, delays, lack of knowledge.
