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

Review

I've owned the '5' for more than 3 years, and the whole family (2 adults+2 young kids) loves it. I was looking for something spacious, minivan or larger wagon, with manual transmission. My previous car was a VW Eurovan with manual transmission, but the manual transmission is gone for current models. When I heard about the '5', it was an easy decision. I like everything about the car, except that if I don't drive it for a week, the battery is empty. The Mazda dealer couldn't find the bug, but replaced the battery a few times at no cost. Also, I expected better mileage and the AC is not great for people in the 3rd row. Other than that, fun to drive, lots of space, and inexpensive to maintain.

Favorite Features

manual transmission, fun to drive, lots of space for 4 people.

Suggested Improvements

Get the electrical stuff right. Where I live (Atlanta, GA) it's impossible to find a manual with a sunroof.
