Great van for the money
By john u on
2000 Mazda MPV DX 4dr Minivan
Bought the van almost 8 years ago and have had only a few issues. Alternator need replacement. Rear hatch struts failed and coolant lines to rear leaked but both were recall items (sure hurt when the hatch slammed onto my head and knocked me to the ground). I've got 165,000 kms on it now and it is rusting like crazy...that is my only real complaint other than the not so great gas mileage and the fact that the van is so boring.
lots of room for cargo with the seats removed/folded out of the way dual sliding doors
Don't put the spare tire under the car where it will rust in place...very frustrating....and do something to stop the body from rusting so bad!
