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


Our second MPV used from dealer; wanted to fit two teenage boys, string bass, stroller and baby-seat. With spit seats in second row and roll away third seat, it's very versitile! Feels more like a sedan than a van. Runs great in town, but sluggish when loaded for a mountain vacation. We've had absolutey no mecahnical problems, now with 40k miles and always 21 mpg.Thought we'd miss the older car door style rear door at first, but find the sliding nice for parking lots. We do wish there were side door pockets and storage spots for all those children things. Can't even hear the engine at idle! Love the new design and plan on another one next time around.

Best Features

Would have to be the roll away rear seat, the sliding second seat, and the roll down passenger windows.We like the CD/tape combo. Handles great in traffic, large mirrors and wonderful on mountain curved roads.

Worst Features

Slide doors are difficult to close while seated inside. Shift handle position. More seat-back support. Allow power outlet use without ignition on.
