ReviewThis is a great vehicleyou just have to know what to compare it to! It's not an Odyssey / Caravan / Sienna competitor. Yes, it has a third row but the Mazda5 is a much smaller vehicle. We stepped up from a Mazda3 after we had our second child. I found we didn't need all the space of a full size minivan so our Mazda5, with a manual transmission to boot, is a great compromise between a 5 seat hatchback and a full size minivan.
We've put 15,000 miles on it so far and have not it in the shop once for a mechanical failure. If you think it looks like a space ship you'll probably get used to that after a while. Tinting the windows all around also helps.
Best FeaturesManual transmission, car-like handling, fuel economy, unique look, reliability
Worst FeaturesSlightly more power (buying a '12 would cure this), passenger side armrest (buy a '08 for this), heated seats in the Sport model, rear backup camera option
