We have had many Mazdas in our life. My first was the 626 and I loved it! My husband had a Portage and he still complains about getting rid of it. We had the b5200(?) truck and I didn't care for it . The last one we had was the Mazda5 and it was a great minivan. Couldn't tell it WAS a minivan. The issue we didn't like was the way the tires were angled they wore down quickly so we were getting new $500 tires every 2years.
