It would be perfect if it used standard tires (not soft ones that constantly need pumping and also reduce fuel efficiency). The tires are the deal breaker. Great for families with children.

It is a very versatile vehicle and can fit up to 6 passengers. It is perfect for families of small kids because the back doors slide open instead of swing out ( if you have small children you'll understand). It rides like a car (low center of gravity). What I don't like is that the tires are a special kind of tire that has to be ordered because is not usually stocked. Also, the tires have to be pimped with air VERY often. Fuel efficiency could be improved as well.

The Mazda5 was the best. Sliding doors, manual transmission all on a car frame.

It provides all the space or a minivan without all the size. It also is available in a manual transmission. It also has a sunroof, 6 disc player, seating for 6. It drives more like a car despite having the space of a minivan. Major plus is that it has sliding doors. The biggest problems we have had revolve around the struts, rust, and snow build up around the wheel wells in the snow season. The worst part of this car is that it is no longer being made.

This is a very reliable car, easy to maintain and very good on gas.

I like the engine. I have owned my car for many years and never had to do any major mechanical job to it. It rides very smoothly and is easy to maintain. It is not a sedan or SUV, but more like a wagon which makes it the perfect size. Very good on gas consumption and I am able to do a lot of the mechanical work myself. What I dislike somewhat is the low profile tires which does not make it the smoothest ride. The A/C does not get cold enough.
