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


Bought this car because it had extra seats and fair mpg...in comparison to others w/ extra seating. The tires are awful! Should not be on this car. They were replaced at 19,000 miles. Got new ones, rotated once, took in to rotate again and was told that they can't be rotated because my rims are bent and that would cause steering wheel vibration (to be worse than it already is). Rims get bent from potholes because the low profile tires on this car do not protect the rims. The tires/rims on this Mini-Van make this car a very bad purchase. If regular tires were on it, it would be a pretty good car, but they're not so it is a very big mistake to buy a 5. It'll keep on costing you money!

Best Features

Sliding doors are good. 17-18mpg (city) is the actual truth. Roomy enough for a family.

Worst Features

Change the tires/rims to ones that are not low profile!
