We bought a new car over Thanksgiving. It's a wonderful brand new Mazda5. We're familiar with the car as we'd rented it several times over the past year (Hertz has it available as an intermediate size car). It seats six, and was only manufactured in 2006-2010 and now in 2012 it's back, making used ones pretty difficult to find, particularly with the manual transmission we both wanted. It's much much easier getting Theo in and out of the Mazda5 than it is with either one of our existing cars. One day we'll probably post some photos here, but in the meantime feel free to read more about the car at Mazda's Website, Edmunds, or Consumer Reports.
