It thinks it's a van... but it's not
By dee on
Vehicle
2008 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Review
Thought it would be a smaller alternative to a van, bought it when gas was $4.00+. It is way too small, can haul 6 people/4 with stuff, but not both. Cons: non-lighted mirrors, small useless cubbies without lids, industrial looking fabric, door ajar light doesn't specify which door, gas cap is very hard to get off, wimpy horn, can't close windows with car off, small sunroof, would switch volume with placement of radio change buttons (don't change volume often, but you always change stations, add on/off button), cubbie under middle seat can't be accessed while driving, sunshade is too short-useless, light in truck have off/on/door, armrest must be up to access back.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive, just wish it was a foot longer and a foot wider. The six seats is a big plus, that's what sold me on the car (since most small SUVs are only 5 seaters).
Suggested Improvements
Parking brake come up farther to be seen; switch places on key fob so unlock is on top, hard to find in dark; don't like lit dash (think headlights on when they aren't & when I turn car off, the dash goes off even when headlights on); smaller back pillars with bigger back window, plus above.
