For its age and size, the Mazda MPV is a great little car. Depending upon how well maintained it is, the vehicle can get up to 18mpg while holding 7 passengers. A reliable car, however it is terrible to work on. At least on the V6 model, even changing the spark plugs requires several extensions on your ratchets. All things considered, it holds up better than an Aerostar, and looks nicer too. It's good in a crash for the people inside, but even a small collision will total this vehicle. Strengths: holds 7 passengers comfortably, safe, compact, easy to drive. Weaknesses: sluggish acceleration, difficult to work on, handles poorly in snow (for RWD models).

With regular maintenance and care, I'm
convinced that Japaneese built MPVs
(not the new ones with the ford motors)
will last virtually forever. Mine has
never let me down in 10 yrs of active
use. Best car I've owned (and I've
owned about 15)! Highly recommended!
