2009 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I WAS a Saab fanantic until GM destroyed the brand. My last was a '99. I bought and older MPV. I found myself driving the MPV mostly as I have a 4yo grandson who lives with me and 2 others I drive a lot. I passed down the MPV to my daughter and bought the 5. I was sure I would like it as it is a form follows function design...remember when Saabs were?? This car is an incredible performer with decent finish at a very low price. I was waiting to write this until I returned from a 6 day/1700 mi trip with my 4 year old. I am 6'2" and 280+# and drove all those miles in reasonable comfort. It averaged 26mpg at 80mph. The bluetooth is simple and works well as well as all the other gadgets.
I love the interior room compared to the outside dimensions! The auto wipers work flawlessly as well as the auto headlights. The seats are small but amazing comfortable over long periods of driving. The little engine was "enough" in all situations. A/C is excellent!
