2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
It's been two years, 32000 miles and I'm just, as happy with my car as the day I bought it. I like the improvements on the, all new, 2008 but there are two improvements I would, still, like to see. All wheel drive should've been offered on automatics and five speed manuals, especially the manuals with insufficent weight on the front wheels and quieter tires, such as, Bridgestone Serenity. The original Toyos are noisy and don't grip the wet. I especially like it being one of a kind, a non van with sliding doors, like Mitsubishi and Nissan had 20 years ago, but much better. Some features standard, not offered on the others, also, the stick shift.
The highly functional, one of a kind body style and the five speed manual transmission.
Offer all wheel drive in automatics and stick shifts, even as an option and, much, better original equipment tires.
