Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Back row in the Pacifica is useless
Even my wife couldn't sit up straight in the back. The Mazda CX-9 is seriously luxe, but with the "agressive" profile of the windows, the back seat feels like the navigator's seat in a cockpit. IOW nice and roomy, but still claustrophobic.

The surprise (to me) was the Mazda 5. Seriously. Three useable rows, sliding doors, but looks and drives more like a wagon than a van. If we weren't anticipating trips with the kids and a set of grandparents, we'd probably be getting one. But the storage space doesn't come close to the vans.

New That's good to know
Thank you. Turns out Mazda is covered under the Ford partner plan, and with the discount and current 1.9% financing, it is much more affordable than the Pacifica.
There is a Mazda dealer just up the road. Thanks for the info!
New Thank you, Drew.
I now have a Mazda 5 sitting in my driveway! I love it! For a 6-seater, it is just so darn sporty! It is a perfect fit for my family. I love the way it handles. I love the seat configuration. I love the moon roof. I LOOOVE the price! I would've never considered this vehicle with out your input. I owe you one.

Storage will be a little tight when there are 6 of us taking the ride out to NJ next month, but I figure Shizzy is small. I can slip her some Dramamine and stuff her in the back luggage area. Then I can pile the bags and beach gear in her seat, with the added benefit of not having to listen to her whine about the long drive.

New zoom zoom!
New + Tribute makes ?
My Tribute is almost 5, and has been trouble free, has survived my wife's driving so far, has plenty of room, drives nicely for a SUV, and the 4WD is nice in the snow.

A friend has had a Mazda 5 for a while, and loves it. I wish there was more space behind the rear seats (in the Tribute, I can easily put a big stroller back there, plus groceries).

I also love no car payments!

New Woot!
Did you go for the bright blue? It was the purdiest.

New No
If I took one they had on the lot they would knock off an extra $1000, so of course, I did. It's gray. Not my first choice, but I'm happy with it. It's still purdy.
New Neato!

I promise you that if I am compelled to turn to the Dark Side on this issue you will come to yearn for the suave ripostes of CRConrad.
