I love my Mazda 5

2008 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


I have been driving my Mazda 5 for about 3 months and couldn't be happier with it. I needed a larger car to accommodate my growing family (baby #2 is on the way). The Mazda 5 is perfect for my needs. Even though it is very compact on the inside, it is surprisingly roomy on the inside. It is easier to drive than a big, clunky mini-van. I can even fit it in most compact parking spaces. In addition it can seat 6, although I wouldn't recommend this car for a family of 4 unless you're not in need of much trunk space. The trunk is plenty roomy enough to fit my jogging stroller and groceries with the third row seats down, and the gas mileage is really good for a vehicle it's size.

Favorite Features

1. Gas mileage: (this was a huge selling point for us) 2. Trunk size: (with 3rd row seats down) 3. Comfort 4. Compact on the outside yet roomy enough on the inside for a family of 4 5. Price: I was able to get a grand touring with Nav for the same price as a bottom line Sienna or Odyssey

Suggested Improvements

1. The trunk is very small with the 3rd row seats in use, but this seems to be a problem with most crossover vehicles. 2. Headrests sometimes wobble if moved up to high. I actually had to remove the headrest to get my Britax car seat installed because it jut out too much
