We're thinking of buying a Mazda 5 to replace our beloved, but
gas-guzzling Honda CRV. According to the manufacturer's invoice,
the car is rated at 21/27 mpg, but the dealer told us with
manual transmission we could expect to get more like 25/31. If
you own one of these, what has been your experience in terms of
fuel economy? Has it lived up to expectations or not? Also - are
there any downsides to this car - for instance, power, handling
in inclement weather, etc.??
--looking for more bang for the buck
If you know if a mechanic who is above all trustworthy and knows his/her way around Mazda's...please send me their 411. I am looking to purchase a used Mazda and need to have it inspected. The owner lives in Fremont and wants the car looked at close to home. I'd prefer not to take it to a dealership. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much! Jennifer
