Wishing I bought a Odyssey or Sienna
By joyfulgirl_3 on
2012 Mazda 5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
I bought a 2012 used with 8.5K. It was flawless except for a stain on the front passenger seat which I have been unable to remove. Another stain is on a back seat that I can't remove. Needs better seat fabric- seems cheap.
I have 2 kids and am finding that as my baby turned into toddler, and with a 9 year old, we are outgrowing the car with backpacks, soccer stuff etc.
If we had another child, there'd be little room for a stroller. No way this car is functional for 4 kids full-time.
Since I bought it, the gas mileage has gone down considerably though it's well maintained by Mazda.
Great to drive forward...seems to have lots of blind spots in spite of all the windows.
3rd row fold down seats.
Slight tint of windows.
Gas mileage, better seat fabric, better air vents for back of the car.
