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

Review

Bought the vehicle just over a month ago to replace a 2005 Elantra (great car btw). Was immediately struck by how great it is to drive; from the driver's seat, you really feel like you're driving a Mazda3, NOT a minivan! Kids loved the mid seats (captains), and considered it a 'cool' looking car. Fantastic view all around, and handles amazingly. After a bit of time, though, some things have started to gnaw: no 'hidden' cubbies to hide GPS's, spare change, etc.; turning on the auto climate control automatically kicks in the a/c (it's January... in Canada... c'mon!). Overall, though, no regrets in getting this vehicle; if you can overlook the lack of cubbies, it'll serve the avg. family well!

Favorite Features

Drives and handles like a compact, easy to park, great view all-around, 5 speed manual shifts beautifully, looks great! More like a stretched hatch than a minivan.

Suggested Improvements

No cubbies to hide things in; rearmost seats can be pretty tight - but you know that going in; climate control kicks in the a/c, even in winter.
