The adjusting nut quality of concern.
After installation, I tightened the lock nuts and the material they we made of was soft. A maximum of two alignments and the adjusting nuts will be useless. The body and bolt quality for this part was good.

Solid aftermarket replacement part
This looked and felt just like the original par (except not worn out) so it was an easy swap with no modifications. Seems solid so far and I expect it to last just like any other replacement part. Would recommend for cheaper investment than dealer, or higher priced items since it seems to work the same.

Mazda 5 Guides

Things You Would Find Most Interesting about the Mazda5

  • The Mazda5 redefines the meaning of family transportation. Unlike other car models that have two-row seating, the six-passenger Mazda5's seating is spread out in three rows for maximum elbowroom. With a two-seat per row layout, passengers are given ample space to move about, ensuring an ultra-comfortable riding experience. Even with the second row in use and the third row folded down, there are still 44 cubic feet of cargo capacity available.

  • The compact MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) Mazda Premacy's second generation vehicle, manufactured from 2005 to 2010, is sold outside Japan as the Mazda5. It is based on Ford's global C1 platform (for compact class), meaning Mazda5 parts and components are 60 percent similar to the auto parts of Ford Focus, Volvo S40, Volvo V50, Volvo C30, and Mazda3.

  • Mazda5 has a "Nagare"-which translates to "flow"-design, and the Mazda5, along with the Mazda3 and the refreshed Miata, has been penned as "a single bead of water with ripples intentionally left on the surface, such that the body's lines express the flow of motion. You can see the embodiment of Nagare most specifically in Mazda5's body side panels. A recognizable execution of the Nagare theme is the sweeping front wheel well sheet metal that twists beyond the minivan's sliding doors. The flow effect breaks up the swaths of sheet metal, turning the body into a point of visual interest. It creates three creased lines that flow along the side of the vehicle and hide parking lot dings. Mazda, the fifth-largest Japanese automaker, has queued up more Nagare design up front, with an expressive and elegantly stamped hood that flows nicely into Mazda5's happy face grille. Yes, Mazda5 has that smiley-faced look, making the car seem perpetually happy.

  • The Mazda5 has been immortalized in stamp form, released by the Japan Post Network Chugoke Regional Office under a limited-edition 12-stamp collection set officially titled History of Mazda Motor Corp. Hiroshima in November 1, 2010. Aside from the Mazda5, images on the stamp ranged from past icons such as the 1950 Mazda-Go three-wheeled truck to modern ones like the MX-5.

  • The 2012 year model Mazda5 accessories and looks are inspired from the Hyundai I20. The Mazda5's wide smile, like the Hyundai I20's face grin, is cut by Halloween-shaped pumpkin teeth. The Mazda5 has a front apron and side skirts all around it, ensuring that it maintains its sporty overture, like the Honda Odyssey.

  • While some call this model as a "mini" minivan, it is actually longer than the first Dodge Caravan that launched the segment.

Mazda5 Common Problems

In the United States, there aren't many choices for those who need a vehicle that has seating for more than five people but who don't want to give up the maneuverability of a compact car. The Mazda currently has the segment to itself with the Mazda5. It seems more like a car than a crossover, providing for better handling and driving experience. But with all its traits come some slight negatives that can provide room for the model's improvement.


Interior disappointments

The hood over the interior instruments-which rises to form a point-seems overdone; in fact, it's unnecessary as the instruments' nacelles shield them. The door panels remain too flat and too plain and the center console looks like a cheap Mazda5 accessory rather than a factory part. The Mazda5's second-row buckets would have been almost as comfortable as those up front if they weren't too low to the floor. The third seat will have to be folded to make way for luggage. Also, getting in and out of the rear seat is tougher than in a larger van. The headrests must be lowered before folding the seats-this doesn't happen automatically.


Technological slights

The audio system sounds like it could use a few more speakers. One will only be able to enjoy those moderate volumes when the Mazda5 is stopped; at high speeds there's quite a bit of road noise. At louder volume levels, the balance shifts to midrange, slightly clipping detail from high end; and near max volume, the bass distorts unpleasantly.


Suspension

The Mazda5 suffers from a few suspension problems. Its shocks and bushings wear out like crazy. Drivers complain that after 18 miles or so, the Mazda5's rear suspension would be shot. Apparently this is a common issue with this model; so much so that there is a Canada-wide shortage on Mazda5 parts, particularly OEM shocks.


Not near enough fuel economy

Fuel economy is not a real reason to choose the Mazda5 over a "big" minivan, at least not if 90 percent of the driver's driving would be done on the freeway. Mazda5 models feature a four-speed automatic rather than the five-speed unit, resulting in lower fuel economy.


General issues

Sliding doors freeze over and get stuck during the winter-if one tries to close them, instead of latching, they would just bounce open. During the summer, they get squeaky and produce noise when opened. There are several sharp edges on the plastic material too, which incidentally makes the interior panels look cheap. Drivers and auto critics complain that its bulky plastics eat up interior volume. There is some very intrusive wind noise from the B-pillar, which sounded like the window isn't closing all the way. Its tires could be a little less noisy. Rust is also a common problem with Mazda5s where the roads are salted.

FAQs—Mazda 5

My Mazda 5 is already driving me crazy. The bushings suddenly break down every couple of months. Help please!

If you have rubber bushings, then you might consider the factors that contribute to their untimely breakdown: heat is the primary enemy of rubber and could cause it to harden and crack, while exposure to petroleum could dissolve it into a jelly. If the bushings are near the exhaust pipe or adjacent to an engine compartment which has poor ventilation then chances are they're going to degrade fast due to the heat. So make sure that you not only focus on the bushings themselves, but rather pay attention to the surrounding components as well because they can affect the lifespan of your suspension parts. And if you want to replace the rubber bushings with something sturdier, then try the Polygraphite bushings. They are flexible, reliable, and are more resistant to wear, without the downside of producing embarrassing squeaks.

I found some rust underneath the front end of my minivan. I guess it occurred after I hit a huge rock by the side of the road. The rusted part is no larger than a penny. Can I just use some sandpaper to remove it and then cover it up with nail polish? I read somewhere that nail polish can cover up nicks and dents in cars.

First of all, using nail polish as a substitute to car paint is only a temporary solution and would not guarantee your vehicle's protection against corrosive agents. Nail polish should only be used as a last resort and should not be treated as a regular fix.

Since the rusted part is no larger than a penny, that may be the reason why you're a bit apprehensive on whether to take it seriously or not. Well, here's a news flash: rust is rust. Whether the rusted part is just the size of a penny or is already as big as your palm, you need to keep in mind that it can spread out and harm your car either way. So might as well take it seriously and remove the rust properly. Use an electric handheld grinder to remove the rust completely, and a high quality auto primer and paint to cover up the exposed metallic body.

My sister lent me her Mazda 5 so that I can fetch my kids from school while our family car is being repaired. I noticed that the car began heating up easily. My children's school isn't very far and I just refilled the coolant. What could be wrong?

If the coolant has just been refilled then you might want to check for leaks. Examine the hoses carefully and watch for cracks or hardened parts. Hoses are made of rubber, which means that the heat would eventually degrade and break down the elastic material. If the hoses are still good then the next thing to check would be the coolant reservoir itself. Same as the hoses, you need to check for leaks too. If the cooling system looks fine then try the fans. If the engine is running but the fans are not, then there's your problem. Have them fixed or replace them because fans are also important, like the coolant, in keeping your vehicle from overheating.
