I have Mazda 5 2010 since day 1, Overall , it's been reliable and cost of maintenance is about $470 / year for past 10 years plus 4 months. ( $4750 scheduled and unscheduled repair) ) Here are pro and con from my experience

Pro:
Compare to standard vans, it's fun to drive like Mazda standard,
Good interior quality , everything from dashboard to folding seats are still 85% new after 10 years,
Great loading capacity , it's been through daily drive for kids middle school , high school , moved to college , moved back from collage... It's been great for it's convivence of functions.

Con:
Bad suspension noise since 5 years old around 50K
Easy to off alignment caused tire life is above 3-4 years ( 30K to 40K)

I heard /saw many youtube that change swing bar bushing can eliminate nosie from front cluck noise ( when drive through uneven road), the clunk noise most times from when it stared in morning and winter times... Summer or after drive a while seems to be better.... I have been searched solutions for long time so I hope someone can help me to suggest...
