2008 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Review
We looked at everything in this price class,new and used. CR-V, RAV 4, Subaru Forester, Kia Rondo,Suzuki Grand Vitara. Nothing offered the combination of fun and function like the Mazda. This is not meant as a replacement for the minivan from Honda, Toyota,etc. You must drive this "microvan" before passing judgment on it. If you appreciate sharp steering and handling over a softer ride, you will not be disappointed. Bottom line: If you need to haul a small family around or just some stuff AND have fun doing it, the Mazda 5 is for you! It was for us! For those complaining about snow traction. Get four snow tires. 205/50/17 all season tires were never meant for snow!
Favorite Features
Handling, features on the Grand Touring like Bluetooth and Xenon headlamps, fuel mileage, the hiding places in the interior,exterior styling. The 5 is still fairly rare in my area, so I don't see another one everyday,which is kinda fun!
Suggested Improvements
OK, power is not the 5's strong point. Please Mazda, bring the turbo-diesel from Europe for this vehicle (143 hp 260 ft.lbs. of torque and 38 mpg city!) Some of the plastics are a bit cheap feeling inside and I'd like a bit more storage for the front passengers.
