2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
My wife and I loved this car when we bought it and still love to drive it.
3 years old now with 25k mostly around town miles on it and and experiencing some of the same problems that others have posted.
OEM tires need replacing.
Right rear shock blew just recently.
Clutch engages very high on the pedal and will probably need replacing soon.
Plus the car has always pulled to the right even after it was aligned and re-aligned.
Other than these issues, we still find the car very functional for carting the kids around and taking family trips.
My wife still loves it, but I'm starting to think that it may be come a money pit in the next few years.
Sliding rear doors.
Fun to drive quality.
Also not a fan of the climate control.
I'd rather have a simple fan control knob and temperature knob with an A/C button.
