2009 Mazda MAZDA5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We bought our 2007 Mazda5 afer running into it at the dealership, and not knowing what the heck it was. We were looking at the MPV van. We were amazed at the versitility, my wife was able to take my daughters basket ball high school team members to games in comfort, even tho some were pretty tall. The last row was a bit limited in the leg room area, but smaller girls did fine! It ngot great mileage, loads of cargo room (Christmas trees!) and build quality 2nd to none!
It's a roomy van, yet looks and acts like a sporty sedan! A pleasure to take on road trips, even the dog had his place! MPG is reasonable for a 7 passenger van. Lots of stares when parked or driving, seems like a lot of people like the way it looks! Paint is supurb, layers deep, and beautiful.
Our 07 had a weak A/C and no arm rests on rear doors or passenger seat, but Mazda listened to our complaints and took care of it for '09!
