Bought a used Mazda 5 and LOVE IT. Lots of space for our family of 5 but not huge like a van or a gas guzzler like most SUV's. Leather interior, sun roof, fold down seats and the heated seats are going to come in handy on those cold nights coming home from the ski hill! I've only had this car for a few weeks so interested to see how it handles these Canadian winters! FYI yes I'd recommend this car but it won't let me select yes!

This is our second Mazda5. It's the absolute perfect vehicle for us. Babysitting our 3 grandchildren means the third row seats and safety features are a must. It's easily converted when extra cargo area is needed. Not the best gas mileage but not the worst. All-in-all a great car. Too bad they stopped making them in the US. My only complaint is that the seat belt cuts across my neck (I'm short) so I'm constantly adjusting it.

This car is great for a small family. It seats 6, but the 2nd and third row are tight when am seats are used. The third row is best for children. While the front seats are comfy for long trips, the 2nd row is a little stiffer and the third row leaves a lot to be desired. Overall his is a great car,and going on 125000 miles with no major repairs needed, it has withstood the test of time!

I got this car because it had the optional 3rd row. I like smaller cars and I had two kids, with one on the way. I should have realized this but it has proven to be WAY too small. It's not been a bad car but I can't wait to get rid of it. Not much pep and no room for my purse. Kids always stepping on seats to get to the back. Boo.

Good Car

by from on May 16, 2017

Love the car. Small enough to "zoom zoom." But large enough for our family of 4. Plenty of leg room and packing space. Love the 3rd row seating.

Nice size car and getting it Certified Pre-owned means it's in great shape. There are some things on the inside that could be better and it may be that later models dealt with this. We got a 2012. The hands-free set up needs work. Microphone is in a bad place. The console between the front seats is very minimal.

Good gas mileage and plenty of space. Third row back seat can come in handy. Sliding doors are easy to operate. LOTS of road noise, which is better than listening to the horribly cheap "sound system". Seats are uncomfortable and ride is rough. Should have bought an American car.
