This has been a great car for 11 years (2001 model), and still going.
I have been holding off getting a new car hoping that Mazda will come back with a real minivan- the 5 is too small.
I have over 200,000 miles now, and it's still going without any major issues.
Been thinking about getting something new, but can't justify because this baby keeps on chugging away.
It has done the full gamut of use- toting loads of kids to practices and activities, towing my 15 foot sailboat, vacation trips, hauling junk in the cargo zone, canoe on the roof, etc.
What a versatile vehicle, and 20 miles per gallon.
The best thing about this car has been that I don't notice it.
It does everything I need it to do, so I don't have to think about it.
Very cohesive, well thought design.
No annoying features.
Maybe the interior could be a bit quieter on the highway.
