2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I am writing a follow up review on this car, because I gave it a stellar rating a year ago, however I would not want anyone to buy this car based on that review.
We have had the car two years.
We have 40,000 miles on it, and are thankfully getting rid of it this week.
I still love the design, the extra space in the back, the ability to seat 6 when needed, but the car is NOT reliable, and very unsafe.
Here is a list of issues we have had: the rotors are shot, replaced the rear shocks at 36,500 (Mazda would not cover under warranty), we have replaced tires, had steering go out while driving (covered under warranty), gas cap broke, rear wiper broke This car shimmys squeaks and feels unsafe.
