2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased with 80,000 miles on it. Love the handling, hated the excessive camber in the rear causing this car to eat tires like crazy. Got a set of camber compensator links for a 3 (same suspension) and installed them myself, then had the car re-aligned. These are designed for when you lower a car they allow enough adjustment to get the camber back to spec. I used them to fix the camber issue and have not had an issue since. The car still handles great. Just had the AC die. Repair cost $750 from an honest local shop. Only Mazda parts are available to fix the AC. Make sure you shop around. Fun, quick, roomy and reliable. It even tows a motorcycle trailer while getting 24 mpg. Dump your SUV!

Favorite Features

Fun to drive. I don't have kids but the dogs and all my mountain bike gear fit with room to spare. Not bad Hwy MPG for what I use it for.

Suggested Improvements

Camber issue. Should have been handled by Mazda. Faulty door locks.
