Just What We Wanted
By Jay on


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


This was the perfect car for us, because of it's unique combination of space efficiency and economy. I also wanted a standard transmission - which is not available on any traditional, larger minivan. Power is adequate, but I believe the car would benefit from a slightly larger engine. I knew before buying that the AC was a little weak, so I had the windows professionally tinted at a reasonable cost. We've had no problem with keeping the car cool, even though - at least for the year we have - there are no ducts for passengers behind the driver. Our driving styles and routes are easy on gas, so the approximate 28 - 29 mpg we average is unlikely to be bettered.

Best Features

standard transmission available fuel economy space efficiency outside styling reliability

Worst Features

slightly larger engine six-speed transmission rear ducts & more powerful AC
