Shopped around extensively, came back to the 5. Have a family of 5, 2 tweens, 1 teen fit just perfect. Good for new families and existing. Parked the Suburban for now. Have had the 5 for two months and cannot keep the wife out of it. For you guys that don't want to be seen in a mini van, this is the way to go. Great value for the price.
Zoom Zoom, handling, stylish, interior is comfortable, little road noise on highway, but Sirius drowned that out.
"Must increase HP!", Turbo would work just fine. MPG are not there yet, expected a little more. Auto locking doors. Needs a luggage rack system, spent big bucks on a Thule system, looks great and carries the load, but Mazda should provide at least a cool looking functional aerodynamic rack.
