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


To be honest, at my age, I kind of miss the roominess and lush comfort of the Chrysler Town and Country we once had. But for value, fuel economy, utility, and reliability I can't say I've ever owned or even known of a better car than our Mazda 5 Grand Touring van. We've put 50K miles on it over two years. A lot of long trips. It's a bit compact for a van but it does seat six comfortably, although two adults in the rear-most bench seat would eventually feel a bit cramped on a long trip. And with six people on an over-night trip there won't be much room for luggage so pack light. The manual indicates that the Mazda 5 is not designed for towing and that it should never be used for that. Howeve

Best Features

fuel economy, utility, reliability, reasonable comfort

Worst Features

Perhaps more adjustability for the driver's seat and powered adjustment would be great for us old guys.
