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

Review

Good engine, great manual transmission. Car handles very well. 25 mpg in mixed city/hwy driving. The remote entry keys work less than half the time. Good thing I can still lock/unlock the doors manually. Absolutely terrible in snowy/icy conditions due to slick performance tires. Occasional strange lurch in 2nd gear. This is a small, economical minivan, not to be confused with a Honda Odyssey. Compare it to other compact cars, not the big maxivans weighing half a ton more. Overall, a pleasant driving experience. Good, reliable, economical transportation. No mechanical problems after 23000 miles, except as noted above.

Best Features

Overall driving experience. Versatility.

Worst Features

Tires that can be used year round in northern latitudes or an all-wheel drive version. Better sounding stereo. Eliminate the occasional 2nd gear lurch. Fix the remote entry problem.
