    Default If you still own a Mazda5...

    I still have my 2010 Mazda5. It has less than 100,000 miles on it and plan to keep it for as long as it does not have major issues.

    If you still have a Mazda5, what kind of tires do you buy and do you have any trouble? My tires have been wearing out--inside much more than outside--within 2 years. I have gotten alignments, rotated them regularly, and this does not seem to do help. Also, last time I had them replaced (beginning of summer), they told me they thought I needed my sensors replaced. I ignored that, but am wondering if anyone else had gotten there.

    We had a 2009 Mazda5 up until winter 2018 but never had issues with the tires wearing out prematurely. We even had winter tires on separate wheels and no issues with those either. By sensors do they mean the tire pressue sensors?

    Too many strollers to list!

    Interesting- I have a 2012 Mazda5 and have had to replace tires twice I think (and maybe an individual tire here or there with a flat.). I have around 65k on mine. It does seem like they wear out sooner than I would expect, I just had it done last week and the front tires looked really, really terrible. It's the only issue I have had with the car, and I'm not sure what would cause it.

    Looks like it might be a known negative camber issue. Here's thread on one of the Mazda forums.

    Maybe try calling TireRack to see if they have recommendations for longer wearing tires? We've always had great luck with them.

    My in-laws had one, I'm not sure the year, but it was plagued by suspension problems. There's was mostly in the front, if I remember right. It didn't deter them from moving on to a Mazda6.

    Google Mazda5 suspension problems, a lot does come up, not sure if it matches your issue.

    My tires never had issues but the creaking and suspension stuff was miserable. They never could fix our 2010. I sunk too much money into it.

    Everyone should change tires at 5000 miles or 5 years, regardless of how tires look. Physical examination does not suffice.

    50,000 not 5,000, right?

    That's a lot of tires you are going through! I have 236k on my 2008 edge and never replace tires that frequently. I amazed at how few miles you all put on your vehicles.

    I win!!! (The fewest miles prize, that is...) Since retirement, I drive much less than before. Also, in the last 5 years, I had several surgeries etc that resulted in a combined total of almost 12 months of not being able to drive. Even so, I guess itís unusual that my 2013 Toyota Matrix has only a little over 8,000 miles
