    Thumbs up New (used) Mazda 5 Owner

    Hi all,

    I recently bought a new-to-me 2010 Mazda 5 Sport with manual transmission. Under 94k miles on the clock when I purchased it, but the 600 mile trip home put it over 95k :-D Yes, I drove 600 miles one-way to pick up a used Mazda 5, but I wanted THIS one with a manual transmission .

    Long time Mazda owner. Love affair started with an '87 RX-7 base. Which led to an '88 RX-7 GXL, an '00 Protege, an '06 Mazda6 and now my newest, the '10 Mazda5.

    So far I'm lovin' my 5 for it's ridiculously good handling for a minivan, it's practicality and good mpg.

    Already named my 5, Comet (in theme with the galaxy grey color).

    He has a few dents and scratches here and there, but like a good dog from the pound, I wouldn't trade him for the world. :-)

    Welcome sir! Nice pick up. Any pics? Always nice to see a third pedal and a good ol' H-pattern shifter in the center console.

    Longtime Mazda fan here too; I've owned 3 RX-7s (all FBs) and an MPV.

    Very nice! At least the water's beading! That's always a good sign.

    Do you have to run front plates in Texas or can you get rid of that front plate holder? It looks awful.
