2009 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


Had one for 1 1/2 years. Really liked it at first. Then noted loss of stable feeling when driving. Drove a lot, had 37,000 and the rear shocks were really shot after 17,000. Very bad in the snow, front tires just spin. Had to get snow tires then it was okay. So factory tires were bad after 20k. So that's two sets of tires after the first year. Overall we got sick of the thing. Gas mileage was not very good. It is low to the ground which makes it look nice but watch it when parking into a stall, you will hit some curb's. Anyhow, with the bad suspension and all I got rid of it for a Mazda6, wow what a difference. Like night and day. Got the 4cyl 2010 and it does get more than 30 mpg. Don't get a 5

Best Features


Worst Features

Much better suspension. Raise it up about 3 inches. Little longer for leg room. Seats that lay down without big gaps. Better sound system. Little bigger engine for it's size. Again the 6 is much better even with a 4cyl. I think the air on a 2010 6 works great so far.
