Good minivan alternative by From Regina, SK on 12/23/2012. Trim: 2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Perfect size of vehicle for us. We needed the space but didn't want a minivan, so we got this which meets our needs, is more fun to drive than a minivan, and gets much better millage. The third row of seats are good for kids and short trips. No big problems, a few annoying small problems.
Cons: Original tires wore out too soon. A set of aftermarket tires fixed this. Rear electric locks failed. Bushings on the suspension have failed more than once. The dealer in Regina, SK is terrible. A passenger side armrest should be standard. It seems Mazda cheaped out in a few places. Fairly low ride height can make winter driving a problem in deep snow. The rubber around the rear doors needed to be replaced after the kids kept stepping on it.
Overall review: It has suited out needs and has been fairly reliable. But there have been a few annoying problems. Approx 140 000 kilometers
