Drove it to Disney World with the family the day after we bought it. There were 4 of us with luggage and it easily accommodated all. The drive was 11 hours and it was a good drive. It you are on the interstate around semi's or driving in moderate to high winds this vehicle will tend to wander with you and it requires that you drive it at all times. No relaxing, pay attention! Drives like a sport sedan and is fun. Trade in was a Mazda 6S and we think the 5 is more fun albeit much less get up and go (power).
Small size outside, roomy inside, very maneuverable on the highway as well as in town or in a parking lot. Low price for the features.
More power, 170hp would be nice. More Touring models with a 5 speed manual. Can't find them as is. Armrest for front passenger seat and on each sliding door.
