2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Had this car for about 1.5 years, bought new and now have 15,000 miles on it. It is a fine car in concept, but has continually had annoying repairs needed. First, the wheel well cover over the front driver side tire was never sealed from the factory. The cruise and ABS sensors malfunctioned due to snow and slop getting into the wheel well where the sensors were located. Second, an oil pan leak needed to be repaired. Third, the ABS sensor failed for a second time. Fourth, the back suspension squeaked, and the rear passenger shock was replaced and bushings worked on. Fifth, a fuel pump recall necessitated another trip to the dealer. Next will be tire replacement (may get 20,000 miles on them).
