Mazda's Swiss Army knife of a car/van. by Troy, Columbus, OH on 04/01/2010. Trim: 2007 Mazda Mazda5 Sport, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Very smart use of interior space. After 2.5 yrs and 60k, I've had zero issues with this car. Have done nothing but change oil and filters and replaced the tires on it. Have driven it from Ohio to Florida and back with the family, and it was very comfortable. (I'm 6'1, 215lbs) No rattles or other buzzy noises yet. Car still seems very tight. Love the sliding doors. Has a mild cool factor that other cars in this class do not have.
Cons: No major complaints. 3rd row seating is for little people only, but you would know that before buying this car. Its incredible that it even has 3 rows of seating. Wish it got better gas mileage, but I think I average around 23mpg which is not terrible. Hard to keep the rear glass clean, but that happens to all cars with a flat hatch in back.
Overall review: I use this car for a catering business and its perfect. Functional, stylish, economical, fun to drive, and trouble free. I don't think it can be beat for the money. Still love it after 60k of hard driving. Not a car for larger families, but would be great for retirees, empty nesters, or small families like mine. (3 peeps) Great for throwing golf clubs in and going.
