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

Review

After having our first baby in June and we decided it was time for a family vehicle. She wasn't sold on the 5 at first because she likes her "small, sporty, sedans". I knew all along that what she wants is no longer practical, so I let her test drive the Mazda 3 first. Reality set in when we put the baby seat in the back of the 3. Our leg room was definitely compromised. Next we test drove the 5 and she quickly realized the 5 was most practical for our new family. This was a tough one considering my father is a retired GM employee and am eligible for the GM discount. We wanted a vehicle suits our needs now and is fuel efficient. Unfortunately, GM doesn't carry a vehicle like the 5

Favorite Features

Comfortable, roomy (for now), sliding doors, autostick feature, fog lights. Standard side impact airbags are a great plus. Rear seats move and fold easily. Factory carpet floor mats are a nice touch.

Suggested Improvements

Auto-on headlights and daytime running lights would be nice. As would we would have liked to have had traction control available.
