Large SUV to a Mazda5? Yes it works
By John Q on
2009 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Traded in my 2002 Dodge Durango for a Copper Red Mica GT. Loved the Durango, but not the 13 MPG. Only 460 miles on "Matt D Mazda" and my expectations have been met. Third row is too tight for adults, but fine for kids up to middle school. MPG running in low to mid 20s with mixed city and highway (22 and 24). I have not had the opportunity for a long drive (300 + miles), but feel advertised 27 MPG for automatic is not only achievable, but beatable. Vehicle feels quick. Some reviews critical of pick up, but I find more than adequate. Excellent ride and comfortable. Perfect vehicle to run errands with the family.
Bluetooth, sliding doors, expansive view from driver's seat, heated seats, and Zoom Zoom
Armrests should be bigger and beefier. Better console with a lid.
