Mazda5
i have been driving this car for 5.5 years... in that time only had to replace rear shocks @ 110K, the front brakes after 5+ years at 120K... not bad... doesn't burn oil... HATE low profile tires tho... one and only time i will have a vehicle with them... seats are uncomfortable for long drives but the engine has been reliable so far... one minor glitch just under 3 years with a valve that was replaced under warranty... i don't LOVE it but i don't hate it either...

2009 Mazda Mazda5

Trim: Sport - Leather

This is an excellent mini minivan, can't beat the 6 seats
My wife loves this car, she was adamant she was not getting a minivan when we had our kids but she absolutely loves the Mazda5. I call it our mini minivan. The 6 seats are the amazing thing about this vehicle, so useful when we have grandparents or visitors staying over or friend's kids to take out. The performance is really perky and fast out of the gates if you need it. We have owned this car for 3 years so far and it came highly recommended from a friend. We can see why. Reliability is good so far in first 3 yrs, the interior is leather but some finishes feel a little cheap - its not really a luxury class car. Where it excels is for the kids. They can get in and out of the captains chairs and the sliding doors make a huge difference. I would like to upgrade to a Honda Pilot or BMW X5 but literally my wife wont let me, she just loves this car. I would recommend you consider the Mazda5 over say a Sienna or Odyssey, its cheaper, faster and has just as much interior space (maybe a little less legroom in 3rd row). Overall this has been a clear winner for the wife and kids, go test drive one and you will see why they like it so much.

2010 Mazda Mazda5

Mazda 5 is a great car for the city
Overall Mazda 5 is a great little car if you have an extended family. I love the sliding rear doors, and the fact that I can fit 3 car seats with no problem. It is easy to park and fuel efficient. The engine is strong but I find the brakes are not smooth enough. This car has seating for 6, but the rearmost two seats can only fit a child or small adult. The rearmost two seats can be folded down for expanded cargo space, but in case you occupy one of the two there is no space for a stroller and groceries. I would recommend installing a top rack for storage in case you take the car for a long trip.
