Have been driving the mazda 5 for 4 months and absolutely love it. Drive is awesome, little road noise (probably from OEM tire), handle wonderfully. Plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 children as we experienced (the two children rode in the bag seats, plenty of space for them there).
A must buy if you want a nice minivan for a fair price, even my wife can stop raving about it.
Ease of drive, sliding back doors, versatility of interior.
Improved gas mileage (still better than any minivan on the market)
