Still, the 5's power-to-weight ratio is a real concern. I test drove the manual and automatic. Until you show them the third row seating. Second-row seats have child-safety seat anchors and top tethers, but the third-row seat only has top tethers. The minivan uses the same suspension design as the 3, including a multilink rear suspension.
I took care of her so she still looked good. Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: 4. Although I appreciate the ingenuity of a company that thinks outside the box wide enough to create a car that none can define, I have to admit I don't really like the way this car looks. Powertrains and Performance The Mazda 5 is powered by the same 2. Our Take on the 2007 Mazda Mazda5 When flipping though the pages of a parenting magazine whose subscription I've been meaning to cancel my kids are 4 and 6, and I no longer need or want to read about great new birthing techniques every month , I became intrigued by ads for the Mazda5.
Zero to 60 mph takes 10. All shock absorbers replaced twice. Lots of little features that I like such as a fold-out center console for the center seats. Admittedly the third row is not for adults on long trips. Cons - I could never get comfortable with the angle of the head rest, so I had to take it out and flip it around. I load it with camp gear and tow a sailboat to the ocean, use it for hauling all kinds of stuff, including my 3 kids and their gear.
My curiosity was matched by hordes of emails from other young mothers wanting to know about it as well. The car sounds like a tin can when starting up, not sure if that is normal or not. Ladders, Christmas trees, cabinets, 30 bags of mulch. Vehicle controls are sensibly arranged and all-around visibility is good. The engine light came on right after we bought it and we were told twice that it was because the gas cap not tightened enough.
If just going around town you can seat 6-7 people. We're the most honest and transparent dealership in South Africa! The Mazda5 is not rated for towing. In the 5, it produces 157 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. We are surprised how much stuff fits in it and how much space we have. The only thing dorkier than a minivan is. The result is minimal body roll, although the taller, heavier 5 feels a bit top-heavy in tight turns.
Never experienced anything like it before. Contact : 0113542000 Amy- 0837366746 whats-app also Precious- 0717003988 whats-app also Blaise- 0619184429 Whatsapp also. It features a raked windshield, an aggressively styled front end, a tapered roofline and 17-inch alloy wheels and tires. We have had a slight problem which we will need to get checked again. Looks good and some good dealer discounts to be had.
Cargo room is awesome for such an efficient and easy-to-park car. I was a bit skeptical at first. On top of that, the 2006 Mazda 5 features sporty looks and handling that should prove much more palatable to buyers who didn't warm to the homely Axxess. It's very sporty, but at the same time there is plenty of room for the kiddos. It is surprisingly versatile with the back seats folding all flat to make a large cargo space or up to hold 6 people very comfortably. The Worst thing about the car though is the way it wears down the front tyres,they only last about 10.
I can hardly go to the grocery store without putting the back seat down. Just completed 87,000 miles this month. All and all still awesome for a car almost 10 years old. The car's good to drive, quiet and comfortable, very practical and has never had a problem. The benefits of this approach — sporty handling, minimal and manageable dimensions — are readily apparent after only a short time behind the wheel. All that said, I do love it! Best and most most practical vehicle I could find for my under-17k budget. Standard safety features include , side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for all three rows of seats.
