I don't like the Mazda 5 at all. It is too small for me and my family and the dealership is terrible.

The dealer of the company told me I had free oil changes for life of the car and I did not have to buy any of my services there but they insist on trying to make me every time I get my oil change there. And my horn had lots of trouble going in and out. Not working. Every time I took it to the dealer it worked. Until it was past its warranty. They said they would not cover it. They wanted to charge me over $100 to fix it. My friend and I found out it was a bad horn. We replaced it for about $20. It is continuous pain to deal with this company and I will NEVER buy another Mazda in my life.

Would buy a Mazda 5 again!

It is been a great car. When we were expecting our second child we purchased this vehicle because we were not ready to go full minivan yet. I loved because of the sliding doors!! So much easier for getting an infant car seat in and out! The air conditioning is great in the front but I always feel like my babies are sweaty on hot days. It has third row seats which I love!! But you give up the majority of your trunk space when they are up. Overall, I would definitely buy this car again. It is not perfect but I feel like you cannot beat the quality for the price!

Mazda 5 sport. . A great car for the new family!

I love my Mazda 5 sport vehicle! It performs greatly. It can be transformed into a six seater vehicle. It is a real zippy car and has decent gas mileage. The only complaint that I would have about this vehicle is that when the vehicle is used as a six seater, there is not very much trunk space available. Other than that the pros definitely outweigh the cons. There are barely any blind spots and the steering for the vehicle is quite smooth and easy to control. Definitely worth my money:).
