A few months back we traded in two non working vans. 2001 Ford Windstar 145k miles and a 2004 Mercury Monterey 120k miles. The Ford had a blown tranny and the Mercury had many many problems. I could only drive it 1 or 2 days out of the week on the months it was working at all. When i traded it in, it wouldnt go over 20mph, it was backfiring and all kinds of stuff. I traded both in with a little cash on a clean 2006 Mazda5. They gave me the keys and I drove out of there fast.
I have been very happy with this purchase and my wife and I love the design. Even though its only 5 inches longer than a Mazda 3, its very roomy inside and the handling is not even comparable to the Ford or Mercury. I was so tired of driving those big vans.
We've been driving our microvan for a couple months now, no problems so far other than i noticed that a very very slight hesitation or miss (not actually sure how to describe it) My first thought was the fuel filter clogged or fuel pump because it only happens when i have less than 1/4 tank. It doesn't happen all the time, like maybe once during a trip of 30 miles. So anyways i was going to log the fuel pressure via OBD2/Torque and was wondering if the fuel pressure is suppose to be constant and how much can it vary on a typical fuel injected system.
