2010 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Just bought this car at the end of June to replace a Honda Civic 4dr because we needed more room. We are a 3 person family and didn't need a larger car. This is a nice alternative because it doesn't look like a mini van, it looks more like a cross-over, but you get sliding rear doors. It has a lot of room inside, but appears kind of small on the outside. It has 44 cu ft of cargo space with the 3rd row folded, which is how we use it 95% of the time. But its nice to have the 3rd row option if needed, but the 3rd row is best suited for kids. The layout inside is good, very functional, with a lot of nooks to store things. Some reviews complain about the car's power, but I find just fine.

Favorite Features

Sliding rear doors without the "mini van look", 3rd row seats, a lot of cargo space, excellent handling, alot of standard features with the sport trim, and its comfortable. It also has very good visibility.

Suggested Improvements

There should be an overhead console for non moon roof models, because its just wasted space now. The 17" tires look great, but perhaps offer 16" ones to give the car a smoother ride? However the ride is not bad now, and I understand to get the better handling you do need a stiffer suspension.
