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


I just turned mine back to the dealership after 100000km. I need to say in the beginning it was really nice, in the end I couldn't wait to get rid of it. I replaced all of the shocks once. I was about to replace my 2nd set of rotors and I am not heavy on the brakes. The dash board cover around the radio scratched easily. Car hung up on snow. Tires wore fast and where expensive to replace. The locks on the sliding doors were replaced twice. Rims sat outside the tires so if you touched the curb you grind the rims. Over all build quality was lacking. The best thing about the car was the stereo.

Best Features


Worst Features

Better rotors, better door locks, Better parts on the sliding doors. Improve rim design. Spec better tires. Replacing tires after 30000km is sad.

Did you have to repair the sliding door locks at the dealer? I just bought mine from Carmax with a broken lock! Taking it back to Carmax, they better be able to fix it!
