2008 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Very nice vehicle, particularly for the money. The HID headlight are great, the ride very smooth and yet sporty, engine power is fine, nice interior layout and decent fuel mileage. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone with the need to transport 4 people (it can take six for shorter trips, less than 2 hours). The 5 spd auto is very nice, it auto downshifts when breaking for a corner coming down a hill to add engine breaking.
Offer the 2.0 DISI motor available in Japan for better fuel mileage, make the 6 speed manual standard and 6 spd auto optional for better mileage and performance, redesign the center console under the shifter, it takes up too much space, offer Euro roof bars, better interior materials, less weight
