1992 Mazda MPV 3dr Minivan


Bought ours used about 2 years ago with 103k miles. Fit and finish are still excellent, everything works. Handling is solid and neutral - good tires make a big difference. Typically makes 18mpg in town which isn't bad considering engine size and weight of vehicle. Smooth ride, good ergonomics for driver (except cruise control location on dash!). The engine on ours occasionally has fairly loud valvetrain noise - apparently a problem with this model year. Dealer had fixed it once before we owned it, but it's back. Everything else so far has been bulletproof - AC, brakes, transmission.

Best Features

Good ride, comfortable seats. Excellent visibility for driver. Great stereo for a factory unit. Small outside dimensions, tight steering radius make it easy to park

Worst Features

Stronger, quieter engine (often tempted to transplant the one from our Chevy Astro). Faster steering ratio. Any other wants have been fixed in later models (additional back door, roll-down windows).
