Great except for two defects...

Vehicle

2009 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)

Review

The vehicle is fun to drive and has versatile seating / storage configurations. Mileage is reasonable. Two big drawbacks though, the rear suspension and the rear bushings. At 50000 km of mostly single passenger commuting, we are already on our third set of rear shocks. The bushings (at least that's what I think they are) creak very loudly in warm weather. It sounds like a horse drawn wagon lumbering down a dirt road.

Favorite Features

Seating flexibility

Suggested Improvements

Mazda should admit that the shocks were under-designed for the Mazda 5 and replace them with something more robust.
