Mazda 5 - 1,627 vs 1,340 for Jan '08
Rondo - 356 vs 1,657 for Jan '08

pretty dismal for Rondo, I bet people can't get the product, not enough stock.

again another dismal month for the Rondo in the US (don't have Canadian figures at this time)
Mazda 5 - 1,975 (vs 2,257 for '09)
Rondo - 465 (1,339 for '09)

We know there is going to be a 2011 Mazda 5 as it was just unvailed in Geneva (another big smile grille!). Rondo?

Canada for February '10
Mazda 5 - 329 (384 for '09)
Rondo - 370 (533 for '09)

It's been some time since I updated this thread with comparison sales figures. As many of you may already know the Rondo is now discontinued in the US, but not in Canada as obviously shows up in the US sales figures:

US
April - Rondo: 685 (1538), Mazda 5: n/a (1758
May - Rondo: 374 (1530), Mazda 5: 1424 (1197)
June - Rondo: 196 (891), Mazda 5: 1059 (1209)
July - Rondo: 174 (557), Mazda 5: 1944 (1315)

Canada
April - Rondo: 597 (1024), Mazda 5: 708 (959)
May - Rondo: 755 (1149), Mazda 5: 1248 (1030)
June - Rondo: 645 (930), Mazda 5: 681 (964)

and one can clearly notice that Mazda5 is filling up the market since Rondo is not available.
I wonder why KIA did that. It simply does not make sense to me.
Did US customers complain more than CAN about the car?

We test drove both vehicles and we started off with the mazda5 at the top of the shopping list. After driving two 5's, and experiencing the booming resonance in my ears at speeds above 40mph, it was struck off the shopping list altogether. I don't know if this has been addressed with the latest model, but if not, consumer report's 95% rating seems ridiculous.

^^ No idea what fool is talking about.

Either a window, or sunroof, was open, or his/her ears need to be checked. :rolleyes:
