2001 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We've owned this van since it was new 8 years ago and its still going strong. Its at 110K miles and while its now been demoted to my "work" vehicle and replaced by an '07 Honda Odyssey, its still earning its keep. Its more nimble than the Honda, just not big enough any more for the two much larger teenagers. Great van for a young family or couples that need a multi-purpose vehicle.


Favorite Features

The innovative storage well and sliding center seats


Suggested Improvements

The lack of power can be unsettling at times, but overall gas mileage isn't bad...I get about 21 in mostly city driving.

2001 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought my MPV new and it has lived up to its billing. Nice ride, comfortable seating. Just change oil, brakes, and other routine maintenance and the van does the rest. Drives more like a car than a van. Easy to configure seats and take out and out back seats for hauling stuff. Wife and daughter can drive it as its not "boaty". The only thing that has broken is the cable for the spare tire. If you buy one make sure to learn how to get it at the spare.


Favorite Features

Steady, quiet ride on highway. Handling is great for a van.


Suggested Improvements

Visuals in interior to get to spare tire under the carpeting. In fact a better system to get at the tire would be an improvement

2001 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Very reliable and practical people and cargo mover. It is versatile for carrying passengers and/or all kinds of cargo. Easy to navigate. Its appearance and smaller looking size belies its ability to easily haul it all. Parking is a zip. Does very well in all kinds of weather.


Favorite Features

Folding rear seat that provides a great place for rear end tailgating. Carries 7 passengers comfortably and easily with good access to any of the seats. Carries a load of stuff with rear seat folded and middle seats folded or removed. Great heater and a/c front and rear.


Suggested Improvements

Middle seats that disappear into the floor as with the new Dodge minivan. Ability to have a DVD system with a moon roof.

Review

We love our MPV! To me, the MPV is the sports car of mini vans. It looks great and is fun to drive and just gives you that feeling of zoom zoom. Sometimes when your driving and rocking out on the great sounding stereo, you've got to look back and remind yourself that your driving a mini van and have your kids in the back. Love this vehicle. So far, reliability has been great(knock on wood). I'm just trying to find out now if there is a way that my MPV can accomodate 3 kids across the 2nd row seats when pushed together. If our family grows out of this van, that will be the saddest part. The MPV Rocks!


Favorite Features

6 disk in dash CD Player, fold into floor 3rd row seat, alloy wheels, sporty look and feel.


Suggested Improvements

Improve Gas Mileage, Make 2nd row accomodate 3 car seats, move gear shift or stereo controls, improve construction/reliability of roof console (sunglass holder won't stay closed).

Review

I worried about the small v6 engine and the reveiws, but I don't see the issue. Looks great! Drives Excellently! The leather seats are really comfortable. I'm just back from a 17 hour 1100 mile trip and not once did my back feel it. In addition, I drove it in the mountains of Tennesee & Kentucky with little effort on the engine. It is NOT under powered at all. The interior style is very up scale compared to many of the "BEST" rated vans especially the Honda. With the CReports ratings at very high. Buy a ES MPV with no worries. You are smart to do so, and will get the best van on the road period.


Favorite Features

ES Styling; The car like driving; The Seats; 3rd row fold down into trunk. The middle captains seats slide together. The 6 disc in dash changer.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holders could be deeper. A navigation system, but then again who needs to stare at the dash. 28MPG would be nice. This car needs little
