As someone who makes it his business to drive a lot of cars out there, I remain very impressed with Mazda. The Mazda5 is a lot of fun and a lot of functional. I can't wait to to get aftermarket toys. The car doesn't need it, but with Mazda always focusing on the individual, instead of bland mass appeal, like some other imports, it should be fun to tweak. My only problem was having trouble deciding between the Mazda3 five door and the "5". They both have a lot of positives. It is just nice to have a crossover vehicle for those of us who don't want to move into an SUV and aren't willing to give up the fight and settle into a minivan. The "5" is perfect for my family of 4 and a 90 lbs dog.
