2008 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I refuse to use the "M" word, I call mine a sport wagon. I was looking at a Toyota Matrix and Scion XB. The 5 cost less and has more room. We have no kids, but we like the utility and versatility. I bought the gt without nav. Coming from an acura tsx I only lost power seats, dual a/c, traction control, stability control and the need for premium gas. I love this thing. I can't believe I have gone 16 years of driving without sliding doors. The engine and power is kind like the TSX....enough for everyday with a little extra for fun.
Perforated leather seats, bluetooth, Xenon headlamps that CAN be adjusted for various loads and overall value.
Make more! Hard to find the color combo I wanted (black/black). Move the gas pedal and brake pedal away from each other (I have size 13 shoes...a little close), make the radio stack lights the same as the dash, bigger sunroof and maybe allow the driver seat to go back one more inch.
