2009 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We bought this car in Colorado and drove it Arkansas. It was great for me and my family. We have two kids (3.5, and 10 months). My wife sat comfortably in the back with the kid and luggage. We really packed this car down and still handled well. There are many way to configure the car and sitting six for short distances is great. For all the mini van haters the sliding doors are great for getting the kids in and out. Handling is great for a car this size. Overall, great car for the money. Mazda has done well. We are really enjoying this purchase.
The value for the money. The ability to pull in and out of small parking spaces. Well built and comfortable.
This car is underpowered, but for the money what can you say!! The arm rest are a bit small. The leg room (for the driver) is small for anyone over six feet. Could use about 3 more inches of cargo space with all seats up.
