2014 Mazda 5 Sport 2.5 from North America


Reliable, economical and comfortable



General Comments:

A recent purchase that was prompted by poor seating in our previous car (Impreza). Health issues required that I trade in a flawless little Subaru; I almost had to lift my wife out of the car, while hoping each time she wouldn't damage her back in the process.

I found the Mazda 5 to have very good seating arrangements, and after researching and test driving, I decided all things considered, price included, that the Mazda 5 was our best bet. I will from time to time share my experiences with the Mazda.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My first update on the Mazda 5... approaching 19000km without any issue. It's a very comfortable, economical and nice driving vehicle that seems a lot larger than it is. Definitely a recommended buy.

The Mazda 5 @ 42000 km is still flawless. My wife is now in need of wheelchair and this little van stores it nicely behind the rear seats. I am amazed that more people aren't demanding that car makers sell such vehicles; practical, economical and fun to drive, not to mention durable.

My Mazda 5 is approaching 55000 km and still flawless; why Mazda stopped making these vehicles is a mystery.

Mazda stopped making them due to slow sales, hardly a "mystery"...

Thanks for solving mystery, but think when oil hits 100$ a barrel Mazda is going to wish they still had the 5 in their showrooms.
