2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I purchased my 09 Mazda 5 one year ago when the first 09's arrived at the dealership. I have 12,000 miles on the car now. Went from a dodge grand caravan to the mazda 5. I needed a vehicle that got better mileage than the van, wanted it to drive more like a car, have flexible seating and be affordable. We are a family of 5. I love the way the car drives/handles. It gets good gas mileage (30 mpg highway)has flexible and comfortable seating. With the hatchback it's even a great car for transporting our 2 big dogs. We will soon be purchasing a roof top carrier--not a great amount of cargo space when the whole family is on a long trip. Why are there not more people driving Mazda 5's? Love Mine!
Clever storage--especially under back seats, flexible seating, climate control
Not a lot of cargo space when using 3rd row seats.
