The SUV rocks. Can't bring myself to call it a minivan. It feels much more peppy than Edmunds describes. Everything about this vehicle is smart! Well laid out. My gas mileage consistently exceeds 28 mpg with only 10k miles on it. That's with the air conditioning on and outside temp for two weeks exceeding 1004 degrees. I have measured absolutely NO difference in gas mileage with or out air conditioning on. Try it and expel the myth.
The entire vehicle, really. I changed the speakers in the front to better ones for $125 and the sound system now kicks!
Add a passenger arm rest. This is absolutely crazy. This vehicle is a ten in every aspect, add a dang arm rest for crying out load. They should actually go back and offer an arm rest upgrade to every current mazda5 owner.
