Stay Away From This Car and Mazda
By Home Theater Guy on


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


We purchased this car for our family because of the dual sliding doors, size and fuel economy. What we got was a lemon. Within the first 2000 miles the A/C went out. Four months later, the A/C went out again. We had this car at the dealer 4 times for A/C repairs alone. In the 14 months we had this vehicle we also had the radio replaced because the sound wouldn't come on. The check engine light came one twice, which required two more visits to the dealer for engine jerking and sluggishness. Up to the day we traded this vehicle, it would wobble or bounce on perfect roads as if it were out of line or the wheels were not balanced. We had those items checked many times, with no changes.

Best Features

Not owning one anymore. Stay away from this vehicle! Mazda will not support you in taking it back or trading it for a different model. We went through every chain of command at Mazda and they flat out refused to assist us. Not a company I would every purchase from again.

Worst Features

Scrap the entire design and start over. Use tires that are better in the rain and don't melt after 15k miles. Treat your customers with respect and provide a car that isn't worth more than $11,000 after purchasing it for $23,000. Read the blogs, Mazda has tons of A/C and customer support issues.
