2008 Mazda 5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


After owning for 4 months we hit a tire late at night on the freeway at about 70-75mph. There were about a half dozen other cars who hit the same tire. Only suffered minor damage to front end (a little expensive to fix) whereas the other cars required a tow to get home we drove off just fine. The rear seats can fir full-sized adults (6' 200lbs males) for sort durations, but are great for smaller adults and children. With the third row folded it takes most everyday challenges. LOVE the sliding doors and small size compared to other minivans. We can open the rear hatch with the garage door closed. Parking in a crowded parking lot is a blast, you can even park 'against the grain'! Love IT!

Best Features

The sliding doors and third room seating option. Great fuel economy. Nice looking car. The white exterior with light colored fabric interior along with tinted windows keeps this cooler in desert summers by 15-20 degrees! Recommended for anyone in So.Cal

Worst Features

More powerful engine or possible turbo option. More padding on driver's side door or a better place to rest your left arm while driving. A conversation mirror to view the kids in the back.
