2010 Mazda 5 GS 2.5L from North America
The Mazda 5 is a family car and it is fun to drive
My Mazda 5 does not have the noisy suspension issue as others have reported. However, I agree the stock Toyo tires are bad quality. They were prematurely worn out at approx 25000km.
I use the car daily. The car is fun to drive, and provides lots of space for transporting large items. The double sliding door make it easy for load/unloading the kids in a single garage. The third row seat is not for an adult to sit in for a long trip.
No issues so far aside from regular Mazda service manual maintenance; the following items were replaced over the past 6 years
Year 2: replaced 4 stock tires.
Year 3: front wind shield wiper.
Year 4: replaced remote key battery.
Year 5: replaced front brake & rotor, and rear brake pad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
