2007 Mazda 5 Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
It is a good car but....the interior color and fabric is terrible. Hard to clean up since everything sticks to it. No armrest for the passenger? Visors are tiny. Tires (Toyo)are terrible and don't last. Headlights are bad when going up and down hills. (Need driving lights to correct it.) Brakes are pretty good but had to have rotors turned already and warping again. The tilt column still doesn't help with your knees hitting the bottom of the column. Seats get a little uncomfortable on a trip. Tires that came with it are summer tires so check b4 you purchase if you live in a wintery climate.
Dash layout is pretty good. I like the radio/cd player. Glovebox is a descent size along with door compartments and center console. Driver components are within easy reach and layed out fairly well. Seats backs that lean back are good.
Headlights, color and type of material for interior, visors that expand, armrest for the passenger, get rid of the silver dash plastic. Better steel for the rotors that won't warp.
