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


Have been driving this car for almost a week - very pleased so far! Some highlights: Performance is more than adequate (no gas thirsty V6 needed). Freeway driving/merging is a breeze. Very comfortable and roomy interior despite its compact exterior dimensions. Perfect for my family of 4. Gas mileage - still on my first tank of gas! And it can only get better from now. Build quality is flawless. Materials used are top notch (and I have the base Sport model). Stereo sounds good. Great handling at low and high speeds. Short turning radius for easy parking! I highly recommed this car! It is the perfect car for small families (2 kids or less). Go buy one!

Best Features

Roomy despite compact dimensions, peppy engine, sliding mini-van like doors, auto climate control, powerful headlights.

Worst Features

I need to think hard for these :-) I miss the auto-up power window feature of my other car (maybe a higher level trim feature?).
