2006 Mazda 5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Another thing, that would improve, the MAZDA5, is, better, tires. My, original, Toyo A18s were good, for 33000 miles, but, they were noisy and spun, too easily, when wet. I replaced, them, with, Bridgestone Serenity, 215/50R 17 95V, tires. The, higher, load index, makes, them, feel, less, vulnerable, less, wet, wheelspin and are a, little, quieter, although, a little, less, sporty, great, for highway driving or dirt roads. The, original, tires, seemed, vulnerable, on a dirt road.

Best Features

The, available, manual, transmission. Consumer Reports', highest rated, wagon or four door hatchback. Lowest cost, of ownership, in it's class. Best value, in it's class.

Worst Features

Wheel Packages, from the dealer, ranging, from 16" to 19". All wheel drive, "high profile," version, of the MAZDA5. Gas flap, on the left side, so, it doesn't lock the, right, door. More vehicles, similar, to these. Don't forget the, manual, transmission. More advertising, for the MAZDA5.
