2007 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
This has been my favorite car I've ever owned. I had a Kia minivan before that I hated. I like that it drives like a car but the sliding doors make it super easy to get the kids in and out. I love the third row seating so we can take Grandma with us sometimes. It has great cargo area for groceries. Agree with the road noise and I wish the front passenger seat had an armrest. Agree that the seats are not comfortable for long drives. Shocked to discover that the side mirrors were not heated. Paint seems to chip very easily and the battery won't hold a charge (but it's winter and I don't drive it enough). Transmission does seem to hesitate sometimes. Key is huge.
Sliding rear doors! Heated seats! It's not too big/not too small, third row seating, roomy cargo area, leather interior, satellite radio, keyless entry, window locks
Rubber floor mats don't hold enough water, the paint chips easily, don't care for the low profile tires, auxiliary input for stereo, heated mirrors
