Mazda5 Sport; The jury is still out
By PFZ on
Vehicle
2008 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Review
Bought "Zoom-zoom" 10 days ago to replace a 1992 Mitsubishi Expo 2.4 which died a natural mechanical death. The Expo beat this Zoom-zoom hands down for roominess, steering, visibility. Zoom-zoom's SMALL third side window prevents decent rear visibility for backing up. From the front seats the front of the car is out of sight, the shifting console lights are misplaced, the steering wheel covers the top third of the speed indicator dial, the key is built into remote control case. The outside trim is too close to the ground. The lack of separate bumpers look like an attempt at profiteering. My ratings reflect lack of trust rather than long standing observations.
Favorite Features
Copper/mica ext., putty gray int., room for six, zoom-zoom feature, easily foldable seats, height adjustability for driver's seat,
Suggested Improvements
In addition to many features suggested by other reviewers: make second and third row seats removable, increase size of third row window, light up the shifting 'on-site'. DO NOT make automatic door locking a standard lest lot of people lock themselves out inadvertently. Make more if this available.
