Some problems to note, great interior
By Chris1031 on


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


Great interior layout and having the various seating options. The seating work well with our children. Another pro has been the dual sliding doors, no need to worry about the children opening their doors and hitting another car. great gas mileage too! The cons of ownership of this car is that at 18,000 we needed to replace all 4 tires. Also, the bushings needed to be replaced as every time we went over a bump the car would squeak like it was 20 years old. The worst problem of all just happened last night. After 2 years of owning this car, I lost power steering suddenly while driving down the street - scary! Check out the TSB regarding steering.

Best Features

Interior - seating options.

Worst Features

Tires needing to be replaced to early on. Squeaky bushings needing to be replaced. TSB (not a recall) on steering issues on select Mazda 5 (mine just happens to be one of them and I was less than impressed to lose power steering suddenly while driving).
