It has 3rd row seating and allows for up to 7 people to be able to ride in the car at any given time.

I love the price point of this used vehicle. As a family of 5, we wanted a car with third row seating, but didn't feel that we could afford a typical minivan or an SUV. This car drives like a sedan, but has 3rd row seating to fit up to 7 people. I also like that the gas mileage is better than on typical SUVs. It is reliable and comfortable to drive. Some problems would include a tight 3rd row (mainly meant for children or small adults) and a lack of trunk space. The last row, when not in use, does fold down to provide more trunk space, however.

Compact, fits 6 passengers including the driver, but not much for storage space when full up.

I love my car, it's very comfortable and gets great gas mileage. If I need room I can easily fold the seats down. Not much storage space when all passengers are in though. It has not had any major problems other than needing a new muffler because it had some pretty cheap welding done. The locks sometime stick in the front doors. The middle seat belts were cheap and kept falling apart so I had to replace them. Headlights are a pain to change. Overall I love my car though and would recommend a Mazda5 to anyone looking for a compact mid size vehicle.

Mazda 5 Likes and Dislikes

I had the Mazda since 2008. It really has any problems. I love the sun roof, fold down seats for more room, and the small size. It is not a van, but acts like one. Dislike the rust all over. I have washed it regularly. Shouldn't rust that fast. I added a hitch for owing features. Like my bike carrier. I added tint. I will keep this car for a everyday car. I am not worried about miles, or getting dents. But I a getting a newer car soon. One dislike is the anti skid control. During rain it jerks at lights.
