2010 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
The Mazda 5 is a unique vehicle that blends traits from a mini van and station wagon. This vehicle is a good bang for the buck. I purchased this car 6 weeks ago and it has met my expectations. The engine is very smooth and despite some reviews that I have read, does not lack adequate acceleration. The trans shifts smoothly. Standard DSC for 2010 was a nice safety addition. Climate control system works well as do the power heated seats. The only problem I have noticed with the car is the windshield seems to creek when the car goes over bumps.The Blue Tooth and Home Link are great features. The audio system is nothing special. Overall it's a solid buy for the money.
Blue Tooth with Home Link is great. Heated seats work well. Dual sliding rear doors and fold down seats provide for good versatility. Third row is only usable for kids. Too cramped for adults.
How about a cover over the front console? More creative storage near the driver and front passenger would be helpful. Auto door locks when the car is put in gear would be nice. The audio system is very mediocre.
