Good van

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Mazda MPV 3dr Minivan 4WD

I have had over 40 cars and never thought I would end up with a van. It just has become comfortable like an old pair of shoes. Reliable, rattle free and cozy. Transmission is the worst. 3 in 134,000 mi. Oh how I wish I had bought a 5 speed. They are near impossible to find but if I do...




Built for the long haul!

Bought the '90 MPV in '94 with 94,000 miles on it. It now has 203,000 with very few issues. I've had some really odd problems that were fairly easy to fix. 1. Lost all coolant once, (bad hose). 2. Snapped a timing belt just after replacement (tensioner pulley went south). 3. Distributer "module" died while traveling 65 mph. All issues after 150,000 miles. All of these were no big deal really. I wish they would have continued this style of MPV - I'd keep buying them without hesitation.

Solid!

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda MPV 3dr Minivan 4WD

Reliable to a fault,(I like to tinker), the light bulbs don't even burn out! This 4X4 is as solid as new and has turned out to be a good fiend. Now for the "but"...the MPG SUCKS!!! and I live in So. Cal so it hurts.




Still going and going and

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda MPV 3dr Minivan 4WD

My parents bought the 4X4 MPV with only 5,000 in 1992. Since then it has been fairily reliable. The transmission burn out the 2nd time in 1998 and our mechanic desided to buy an used transmission and viola!!! he found one from a wreked Nissan Pathfinder and haven't give any trouble sincce then. This is the perfect car for college and for the beach too. The space behind the rearmost seat is scarce but is a nice combination between passenger space and handy proportions. The quality of the interior is outstanding, after 14 years the datshboard looks just like new and the fabrics are in great shape to. Try to say that from a Chrysler minivan.




Old faithfull

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda MPV 3dr Minivan 4WD

THE DESIGN FOR THE TIMING BELT IS NOT THE BEST: HAD TO REPLACE IT 3 TIMES DUE TO PULLEYS FAILING (AFTER 115000 MILES) DID ALL THE WORK MYSELF OTHERWISE IT WOULD HAVE COST ME AN ARM AND A LEG. VALVE COVER LEAK AROUND 95000 MILES, AFTER THAT NO MORE LEAKS. THAT IS TO ME EXCEPTIONAL SINCE ALL MY OTHER "OLD CARS" LEAKS. AT 135000 MILES IT IS IN PERFECT MECHANICAL CONDITION. DOES NOT BURN ANY OIL. FUSSY ABOUT TYPE OF ENGINE OIL OR VALVES WILL KNOCK. (uSE ONLY HAVOLINE 10W30 OR VALVOLINE HIGH MILEAGE.




My favorite car!

This vehicle has lasted a very very long time, with little or no maintenance almost all years. We hate to replace it. If Mazda was still building the 4WD into its minivans, I'd get another!
