Bought Brand new in Jan 2007 Let me tell you what I know to date!
By goodnplenty on
2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
The tires are rediculous on this car, you have to rotate them with EVERY oil change because this car only requires you to get an oil change every 5,000-6,500
You cannot get non Mazda Shocks on this car and apparently noone but Mazda can seem to get the shock to work for than a 8months even if your machanic gets the shocks from mazda.
I put after market shocks on my car from 2 diff. mecahnics and they both busted a block down the road.
then they replaced them with Mazda shocks and they worked for a while, now Im waiting to see if Mazda will warranty the one that isnt good less than a year later.
I drive my car about 60 miles a day back and forth on the Turnpike mostly highwy
Favorite feauture is the sound system and the sunroof!!!!
