I can't believe it's rear wheel drive??
By johnny marshall on

Vehicle

1997 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan

Review

Bought it with load and people in mind. That's all I got.Constant rear passenger door locking problem, it locks when it shouldn't. In winter, all locks go screwy. I NEVER asked if it was front wheel drive when I bought it. Japanese DON'T make rear wheel drive anything anymore, right? WRONG! New winter tires on, it handles worse than my old GMC vandura! No confidence in this vehicle whatsoever. Even the Big 3 make front wheel drive minivans! What happened to these guys on this one? The fuel economy is aweful, I can't wait to change it! I think a Sante Fe will be better than this. What a shame!

Favorite Features

I like it fine when the weather's nice outside and I'm not driving it, they said the CRV was overpriced, underpowered!!

Suggested Improvements

Front-wheel drive people!!! The AWD must be murder on fuel economy!
