    2015 Mazda5 Minivan Drops Manual Transmission For the Final Model Year

    I'm not into crossovers but at least I can tell you that the CX-3 is the best looking of them all (Nissan JOke, Honda HR-V, etc.) http://www.torquenews.com/1083/mazda-s-new-2015-cx-3-its-best-looking-vehicle-photos

    2015 Mazda5 Minivan Drops Manual Transmission For the Final Model Year

    For the 2015 model year, the one and only purpose-built Mazda family hauler has been overhauled, but dont expect any miracles. By overhauled we mean that the Japanese manufacturer cut down on some available options for the small minivan, chief among which is the elimination of the six-speed...

    2008 Mazda5 CEL came and went a couple of times. No symptoms so far...

    Thanks for the offer rodslinger. Well, no more rain, weather has been much better and the CEL has not come back since. Also, by doing more research it seems that the code is thrown more often than I thought on different brands after heavy rain, under carriage car washes or even puddles, I hope...

    2006 Mazda 5 power steering pump leaking

    I have a 2008 Mazda5 and I saw some fluid drops on the floor and I was told during an oil change. They said the rack needs to be changed, but I suspect is the steering pump because of the location of the leak (just underneath the pump). Leakage is very subtle (checking levels every week or so)...

    2006 Mazda5 Door latches recall and Squeaking Bushings TSB part numbers

    Not sure if they can still honor the recall as is out of warranty, but the recall info is below, I'm sure a MAZDA dealer can retrieve it in their system. I see 2 options: 1. Try to find the OEM parts online and replace them yourself 2. Worse comes to worst try to lub the latches with silicone...
