2007 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
We bought our 5 new. 4 years 66K later, wife has a love-hate relationship. It is very utilitarian and it has been very reliable. We've only had to replace a broken strut.
(Free with our MEPP extended warranty) It gets decent mileage- about 23-24 mpg. However, we have to replace tires every 18 to 20K. Low profile tires pop when you hit a big pothole (unavoidable in OK) with one bent wheel so far. Interior road noise is so loud that we have to yell to the back seat. I mean REALLY loud. The AC loses some cool when you accelerate hard and my wife will only run it on recirculate to get cold- but it does get cold. We are buying a CX-9 and giving 5 to teenager. Will see if 9 is better quality.
Seats 6, Decent MPG, back seats fold down easily, with 4years/66K reliability has been good so far.
ROAD NOISE, stronger wheels and less tire issues (I assume it is a suspension camber issue)
