Great Vehicle For A Family Of 4 — The 2008 Mazda Mazda5 has turned out to be a great family vehicle for us. It has flexibility with its cargo space. It seats four comfortably and six when it's pressed into duty for people transport. Add to it a 5-speed manual transmission, low maintenance costs and good fuel economy, and we've been quite pleased with it.

Pros: It has a 5-speed manual transmission.

Cons: It's a little underpowered.

Minvan Style Vehicle, Drives Like A Car. — Interior room is pretty good. Its a minivan that drives like a car. Easy to park. Fuel mileage is good, wish it could hold more fuel. Wife loves the car. The cargo room is not so good, but can seat six comfortably.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good overall vehicle.

Cons: Small fuel tank.

Zoom Zoom — The vehicles performance is quite peppy for a 2.3L engine. It's the heart of Mazda's Zoom Zoom! Quality has been good...the only problems have been a piece of moulding coming loose on the left passenger window, and the back window shattered. The styling of the vehicle is very smart and sporty for a Multi Use Vehicle. Gas mileage is great...at about 625km a tank. It's a Mazda...of course it's fun to drive!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a Mazda

Cons: It's 2 years old now.

Mazda 5 2008 — I have only had my Mazda 5 for 6 days. I am not sure about the gas mileage because I have not taken it on a long trip. The one irritating thing I have noticed is some degree of road noise. I cannot figure out where it is coming from. I suspect it is coming from the rear tires. Maybe they need balancing or maybe it is the type of tire. Not sure. But will take it in to the dealer and have it checked out. Other than that I like the car a lot and will be curious to see the actual gas mileage in city and highway. Thank you, DJ

The Mazda 5: A Practical Family Car. — The car gets great mileage for one with a third row. It accelerates and brakes well, but the engine is noisy. Too much of the body is made of plastic. But I think it is a good car for a family that is interested in low cost and good gas mileage.

Pros: Good gas mileage, third row.  

Cons: Noisy engine.  Body is made up of a lot of plastic.

Family Car With The Extra's — My car suits my lifestyle, 7 seater MPV. I have three kids, a husband, 2 dogs, a mother a mother in law and a grandmother in law. We need the car space, what can I say! She runs well is'nt noisy at all. The only thing I hate and Mazda havent been able to fix, is the radio goes crackly at totally random occassions, so it's ipod and Cd's most of the way! She's affordable to run and accellerates well for a fully loaded 1800 engine. She certainly beats the zafira I owned.

Pros: Quiet engine, smooth drive

Cons: Radio crackles constantly

Mazda 5 Mpv — Pretty quick, fairly comfortable for the 'above average' sized driver, but loads of cupholders...11 of em! Seats 7 when we need to, and has a good sized boot when we don't. Good fuel economy at around 30mpg ( good considering the way I drive! ) and it looks a bit different. Much more comfortable than the Zafira I tried, and better equipped.

Pros: Good quality, roomy

Cons: No Bluetooth or cruise control.
