Features the Canadian 2006 Mazda 5 GT is lacking

Things I wish were included in the '06 Mazda 5 GT edition for Canada:

1. 5 spd Auto (as per the '06 Mazda 3 GT)
Comment: If this was a 2006 model, and they came out with a 5 speed AT for the 2006 Mazda 3, why would Mazda be crazy not to offer this great feature as part of the '06 Mazda 5?* Defies any logic...sigh.
2. Privacy Glass standard
3. Xenon headlights (WTF doesnt this option exist in Canada - madness!!!!)
4. Optional Bose sound system (same as above - non-existent option in Mazda 3 or 5 for Canada - crapola or what!)
5. Electroluminecent guages similar to Mazda 3 - the current guage on the 5* seems bland compared to the 3
6. Trip computer
7. Auto dimming mirror with digital compass - lovely for those long drives stateside
8. Optional Navigation
9. Optional DVD Entertainment System for rear passengers
10. Standard MP3 player (its optional as far as I know) Comment: Mazda Canada - its 2005 for God's sake!

Aren't Canadian's getting stiffed by Mazda Canada for a lack of options available?* Interested to hear everyone's comments...

Dont take me wrong - the Mazda 5 is a great ride, I'm just not impressed with the lack of options available to Canadians by Mazda.* IT's depressing what the Japanese, Europeans and even Americans get in terms of features and options.* These options make the car so much more enjoyable...will stop complaining now*

Hopefully Mazda Canada reads this and see us Canadians want the features above, do u agree?

It's not just Canadians... it's North America on the whole. I really want the European roof rails.

Re: Features the Canadian 2006 Mazda 5 GT is lacking

I've noticed that the "options" on 5's were scattered in the first few cars that arrived. I've got TPMS, but it isn't mentioned on the sticker. I see that some Canadian cars have rain sensing wipers, but as far as I know, they aren't available here in the States. I've seen Touring models just like mine that didn't have TPMS. I think that introducing the 5 to NA was a quick response to rising fuel costs. Possibly, we ended up with cars plucked from orders to other places. Option lists will most likely settle down once they start shipping more, but I think as some of the first buyers, we might have ended up with some unique stuff. Maybe we should post what we've noticed about the cars we have. It might be interesting.
