2000 Mazda MPV

2000 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan
For 3 kids under 10, this has been a
good car. We have had it for 3 years.
Many interior features make long trips
easy. We have done some 1200 mi. in one
day trips w/all 3 kids. Not really a
lot of fun to drive, but moves people
well and it was about $4,000 less than
the Odyssey & Sienna and about the same
price as a domestic. Interior easily
configures by wife. No moving 60 pound
seats. Haven't had any serious
mechanical problems except the front
suspension after the wife ran into a curb.
Flip down rear seat. East of
entry/exit. Middle seats highter than
front so passengers can see out front
window. Roll down side windows
More powerful engine (this one is 170
HP). Better suspension. Ride is too cushy.
