Expected better gas mileage.
By starbright on


2009 Mazda 5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


We have had our Mazda 5 for 2 yrs now.
We aren't happy with the car.
The gas mileage is very poor-only 23 mpg highway and we live in the Canadian Prairies so don't have alot of hills.
The cable for the manual shift went out on me right before I went on the highway-scarey!! It was covered and we were told it was "unusual".
Then, my power steering pump went as I was driving into the Mazda car lot to find out about a strange noise I had.
The service center was very kind and replaced it right away at no charge since there was a recall (get yours replaced!).

I love the concept of the car.
But we must have a 'dud' and are looking at replacing it soon.

Best Features

seat warmers, sunroof, and overall look of the car...it is classy.

Worst Features

Not what I thought a Mazda would be like. Inferior. Plastic interior is difficult to clean too. Better gas mileage needed.
