2008 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We test drove all the minivans out there, since we needed the sliding doors feature for our growing family. After doing all the research, it's hard to understand why there are so few on the road out there ! We have every option, minus the navigation, and love it. To get the Bluetooth, DVD system, etc., on other makes, you have to buy the top of the line. Not worth it ! The gas mileage is much better too, and these days that factors into the purchase greatly. Very comfortable for everyone, from driver, to the people in the 3rd row.
Hate that I have to fill up gas on the passenger side - I guess that's because this is a global car, not specifically designed for the US market, also when front door is locked, have to manually unlock from the inside (doesn't automatically open when pulling the lever).
