Review

Air noise makes top skylight window intollerable on any amount of side wind.
Front trans-axil noise is very loud with only 20k miles.
Dealer says it is tire cupping.
So...they cannot fix and the noise is so loud that I cannot hear the radio at a normal volume.
Other than the noise, noise, noise, this is a good car to meet my needs.
Fuel economy is as advertised.
My Mazda truck is a nice quiet truck so I do not have a problem with Mazda.


Best Features

Good entry and loading with side doors


Worst Features

Orange light on Drive Indicator can be a nuisance. Would have been better if it were dimmable or blue or white. Orange usually indicates a "trouble" indicator.

Review

We have owned the vehicle for 18 months now and have accumulated 25,000 miles. We have already had to replace the stock tires due to the originals wearing out. We took the vehicle to the dealer for all maintainence and we had a passenger side axle have to be replaced due to defect at 16,000 miles. At 25,000 miles the transmission decided to blow up. When in the dealership getting the trans replaced, they also found the drivers side axle was defective and also had to be replaced. The car gets around 32 mpg as we drove it from Iowa to NJ 10 times over the past 18 months. It is great with the entertainment package, as the kids love it. It is a little underpowered when going over steep hills.


Worst Features

Something to better the life of the tires.

Review

This IS an inexpensive, cheaply made & poorly designed SMALL car with sliding rear doors, NOT a 'mini' minivan. If you do research, you will find that Mazda has a big mechanical problem with the rear-end camber that Mazda either will not or can not repair on the Mazda5 (as I experienced with too many trips to 2 Mazda dealerships).
It leads to a horrible vibration, poor ride, LOUD noise, & premature tire wear.
While the car handles relatively well, the engine is grossly underpowered for this small car.
The 3 rows are nice but the front seats are very uncomfortable with very little leg room for the average adult. There is little interior storage. This is a poorly built car.
DO NOT BUY!

Review

You get what you ask for!
I LOVE this vehicle!
I had NEVER bought a Brand New car before in my 38years.
I DID my research.
I wanted a Fun, Safe, Reliable car/wagon/crossover thing that was perfect for a family of 4 with a dog.
I wanted something that was safe, fun to drive, good on gas and affordable.
I also wanted to have the ability to haul another person just in case i had to.

I ended up with this gorgeous Mazda5 and I am so happy with it!
I have been asked several times already by people in Parking lots what it was.
I fit comfotably in it and i am tall.
The sliding doors make it easy for the children to get in and out of.
It is fun to drive!


Best Features

6 passenger seating but small bucket seats Automatic climate control sliding doors second row under seat storage roomy cargo when third row is down flat great on gas good value drives well can switch to manual if you want to


Worst Features

More Storage! The glove Compartment is HUGE, but it would be nice with a larger center console with a lid
