2009 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Finally got the car I've had my eye on since the summer of 2005 when they first came out. Had been driving a 2007 CX-7 but just wasn't happy--had those famous fuel system issues/CEL 4 times. My 2009 GT was fresh off the truck. I've never had so much fun driving in my life. Took a hit when I traded in a car soon after buying...and I couldn't care less. Our two kids love it, my husband loves it and I plan on holding on to this as long as it still rolls.
Hidden storage under 2nd row seats, heated seats, rear air. Handling and steering feel.
Lid on the cubby in the front row (but you'd have to give up armrests.) Surely they will give it ESC someday??
