Regretting decision to buy the Mazda5

2006 Mazda 5 Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
So far, I have to say it is just ok. Biggest complaint is very poor climate control, poor kids are cooking in second and third rows. Second big issue is the key that costs nearly $300 to replace if lost or damaged, with no alternative. To top that off, the key is manufactured mainly of plastic, which is just too easily broken. I feel like I am walking around with a porcelain egg or something, if I drop it will it break, yikes! Overall I would go back to my crowded Pontiac Grand Prix or even the gas guzzling Durango. Serously regret the decision to purchase this vehicle.
Sliding doors make for easy entry and exit.
Climate control, and alternative or improved key manufacturing.
