Just wanted everyone to know that I always liked my MPV but this car also saved my life. I was in a head-on collision with an F-350 that turned into my path illegally. The positioning of the engine more to the passenger side and the seatbelt/airbag combo are what saved my life. So hats off to the Mazda Manufacturers for safety and a great car.
My favorite features were the way the doors opened all the way in the back and the design fit all four of my growing boys and our German Shepherd dog. I also like the SUV 'wanna-be' style.
The only thing I would change is the rear cup holder position. Between the seats is a bad place and built in to the door arm rests would be better placing.
