Not the car for you if you live in a winter climate

2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
When I 1st got this car I loved it. Now that I've driven it for 2 years I have had it. My biggest complaint is the seat belts. I have had to replace 2 seat belts because the reciever has just come apart. I would hate to be in an accident because I have no faith that my family would be safe. When I called Mazda they would not replace the 2nd one because it wasn't under warranty.
They obviously don't care about safety. I also have issues with the tires & the snow. Even with the snow tires you can't get traction because of all the snow pack. I am also quite disappointed with the gas mileage. I was hoping to get at least 27 mpg but actually get about 21 mpg.
has good get up and go
Front bumper is too low
Gas mileage is terrible for something this small.
