I have owned a Volvo, 2 Audis, a Buick, and 2 Chevy Suburbans. My 2001 Mazda MPV has truly been the best of them all. It currently has 86,000 miles on it and has only needed minor repairs thus far. A big thing for me is that no little pieces have fallen off like in my other cars, and the whole car seems to be very well made.
It drives like a sedan, not a minivan.
I wish the hood was at a more horizontal angle. It is difficult at times when I have my hands full, because I can't set anything down on it.
