2007 Mazda Mazda5 Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought it new because it had a lot to offer as our sole family vehicle.Original A/T tires are still fine. Driven it all over northwest USA & west Canada. Has been a good tow vehicle, we pulled a 2000lb trailer through snowy ID Lolo Pass, MT, WA and the rockies no problems. Handles suprisingly well in slippery conditions. Braking is great. Could do with more power but the tradeoff is decent fuel economy. Now at 30k miles. Have had to do nothing but oil changes. We'd definitely buy the 5 again. Has served us well. Our 3 kids have punished it inside and out so the paint does seem to scratch easily which is probably typical of all new vehicles these days with the bare minimum paint used.
Favorite Features
Practical & versatile. Good use of space throughout. Easy to drive & manouvre. Impressive work horse for a small van.
Suggested Improvements
Just a bit more engine grunt, try DOHC. Heated side-view mirrors. option to add middle seat in 2nd row. 12V outlet in back for DVD player & game stations. 6th gear for the manual as it currently revs at 3000+ at 100kmh. That would greatly improve highway mileage. scratch 'proof' coating on all paintwork inside & out.
