2007 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I am in sales and drive about 35K/year,so I can quickly know if a vehicle is going to last and this has been the BEST VEHICLE I have ever owned. After 76K miles this car has been extremely reliable with no repairs other than scheduled maintenance. Also no rattles or odd noises, its a very well built solid car. The domestic car companies should take note! I'm averaging about 29-30 MPG mixed driving using a K&N airfilter and synthetic oil (Amsoil). Even though it doesn't have all the bells and whistles and the interior is rather spartan/cheap feeling, it is very functional. I am very confident that I will see 150K ++ from this vehicle.
Fun to drive! Very comfortable. Versatile. Easy to maintain, well built and extremely reliable.
Bring the diesel here! I have a 2007 and it looks as Mazda took care of the improvements I noted.
