Purchased As Used
I purchased the Mazda5 for my wife as a replacement for a Ford Windstar that averaged 18 mpg. My new mpg is around 28! The aspect I like the best would the 6 passenger seating. It allows for me, my wife, and 4 kids to go out comfortably on our weekend expeditions. It rides pretty smooth as well as looks a lot better than your average minivan. I don't mind taking it out once in a while when she lets me to get groceries and such. The only drawback to the Mazda5 in my opinion is the lack of storage space when all the seats are up. Realistically, you can fit about 3 backpacks in the storage space. Mazda does have a roofrack available for this car and I'll probably end up buying one before embarking in a long cross country trip. As a side note it does have some hidden storage underneath the chairs in the second row and under the rear floor to stow away small items. With the back seats folded down flat you have a more than adequate amount of space. I opted for the Touring model with sunroof, fog lights, sideskirts and rear spoiler.
