2012 Mazda 5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


I bought my 2012 Mazda 5 in February of 2013 with 10 miles on the odometer.
Upgrading from a '96 Corolla with 166K and 27/34 mpg.
I got all the room extra I wanted and more but was disappointed in the mpg (24mpg).
I am more of an SUV kind of person rather than a "mini-van".
It's size and body style is more inline with the Rav4 & CRV that I looked at with a better price and mpg than they offered.
I wished the milage was better and there was a bigger covered center console.
I could have gotten this with new Mazda CX-5, but the bench seat didn't fold FLAT and the front 'racing" seats were hard & uncomfortable.
Every time I drive ZoomZoom, I find something else about it I like

Best Features

I love the Flat folding cargo capacity. Tons of room in the back without loosing the second row seating

Worst Features

The center console needs to be larger, taller and covered so you can put things in it and not worry about them being seen or something spilled. Adjustable roof rack and rails on the top, instead of the removable fixed point cross bars. This would increase the "sporty" look and provide added hauling capacity for the family trips
