    Our reliability stats for the Mazda5 now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

    Repair trips per 100 cars:

    2012 Mazda5: 10, low
    2010 Mazda5: 42, low
    2009 Mazda5: 59, moderate
    2008 Mazda5: 67, moderate
    2007 Mazda5: 104, high, small sample size
    2006 Mazda5: 54, low, small sample size

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

    2012 Mazda5: 88, < 1
    2010 Mazda5: 59, < 1

    If a model year isn't listed, or its sample size is small, then we especially need more owners involved.

    You're certainly welcome.

    Time for another one. We've updated our reliability stats for the Mazda5 to include owner experiences through September 30, 2015. Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

    2012 Mazda5: 7, low
    2010 Mazda5: 47, moderate
    2009 Mazda5: 61, moderate
    2008 Mazda5: 79, moderate
    2007 Mazda5: 111, high, small sample size
    2006 Mazda5: 64, moderate, small sample size

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

    2012 Mazda5: 92, < 1
    2010 Mazda5: 63, < 1

    We'll have further updates in February and in May. Additional participants are needed to provide precise stats for all model years.

    Just a quick update on reliability for my 2008 Mazda5. I bought it second hand last April, it is the 2.0 turbo diesel French spec. When I bought it it had a host of problems, mainly manifesting themselves by DPF and Engine lights. It was under warranty from the dealer I bought it from, so it did not cost me to have repairs done. First came a new DPF filter, then a sensor. Numerous regenerations later, and four months, the problem still wasn't cured. Intervention from Mazda France, they removed the injectors and sent them for testing, resulting in two of them being replaced. Yet more testing by Mazda saw a major software upgrade to the ECU. This still did not cure the problem, and this was after a further six weeks! Finally they called in a local software expert who spent a few days tweeking the ECU software. The results have been worth it. It has now been 2 months and I have done over 2000 miles hard driving and the motor has performed perfectly. It has also been returning an average of 5.7 litres / 100 km, that is 49.7 uk mpg.
    I know there are many posting about Mazda 5's DPF faults/problems. It appears to me that the problems are in the ECU software and not the engine, sensors or filters.

    We've updated our reliability stats for the Mazda5 to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

    2012 Mazda5: 4, low
    2010 Mazda5: 36, low
    2009 Mazda5: 84, high
    2008 Mazda5: 77, moderate, small sample size
    2007 Mazda5: 126, high, small sample size
    2006 Mazda5: 85, moderate, small sample size

    No stat, or a small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.

    We've updated our reliability stats for the Mazda5 to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year (lower is better):

    2012 Mazda5: 13, low
    2010 Mazda5: 27, low
    2009 Mazda5: 66, moderate
    2008 Mazda5: 65, moderate
    2007 Mazda5: 90, moderate, very small sample size
    2006 Mazda5: 82, moderate, small sample size

    We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

    2010 Mazda5: 79, < 1

    We'll have further updates in November and next February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
