This IS an inexpensive, cheaply made & poorly designed SMALL car with sliding rear doors, NOT a 'mini' minivan. If you do research, you will find that Mazda has a big mechanical problem with the rear-end camber that Mazda either will not or can not repair on the Mazda5 (as I experienced with too many trips to 2 Mazda dealerships).
It leads to a horrible vibration, poor ride, LOUD noise, & premature tire wear.
While the car handles relatively well, the engine is grossly underpowered for this small car.
The 3 rows are nice but the front seats are very uncomfortable with very little leg room for the average adult. There is little interior storage. This is a poorly built car.
DO NOT BUY!
