2007 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
Bought ours new in July '07. Overall, this is a very good car for a new family with small children. Easy access with the sliding rear doors but it doesn't feel like your driving a minivan. Needs more horsepower! We have averaged 23 mpg in mixed driving since we bought the car, not bad but not great. Routinely get 27 on the highway even with the Thule cargo box on top. This car is one of Mazda's best kept secrets!
Sliding rear doors, seating for six, large cargo area, fun to drive, unique look. A lot of value for the money.
A/C for rear seats (fixed on later model years), armrest for passenger (also fixed on later model years), gas pedal to close to the brake pedal, more hp (50 or so). Some problems being reported with the bushings on the front stabilizer bars, mine started making noise at about 42k.
