2008 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Have had our vehicle for over a year. Power steering keeps cutting out, brakes squeak like mad in the rain, dealer seems unable to fix either problem. We drive 34,000 km per year, are a family of 5 with 3 smaller sized teens, this is our only car. No where in the middle seats to put a drink down (our vehicle does not have the under seat fold out holder - which is annoying in itself). The back window never seems to stay clean, no matter how often we wash it, car washes seem to never get the whole back of the car. It is fun to drive, and looks great, gets excellent mileage BUT it is uncomfortable, and the person in the back row is either hot or cold. Needs AWD for North American snow
Love the look of the car, the sliding door panels, and it is fun to drive. The wipers come on automatically when it rains - love that feature!
Must have AWD for Northern Climates, power windows should be able to go up even if car is off! Drink holders for center row (not as an extra) Temperature adjustment for back row, front bumper too low for snowy climates should be raised just a little. Seating should be more comfortable - adjustable
