2002 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I don't really like minivans but I need to keep all of my toys out of the weather and away from thieves (skis, bikes, etc.). I was attracted to the MPV for its small size, adequate engine, 5-sp transmission and handling. I have't been disappointed with any of these features. The engine/trans work very well, even on high mountain passes. The handling is better than I have ever experienced in a minivan on twisty mtn roads. It's as fun as a minivan can get! Fuel economy is ranging from 20-23 mpg with most of my driving in suburbs and mountains. Much better than any of the SUVs I looked at.


Favorite Features

3.0l engine and 5-sp transmission make this van very enjoyable to drive (especially for a minivan). Handling is also excellent for a minivan.


Suggested Improvements

Needs to have the following features available: auto-on headlights, climate control (with so much glass), heated front seats, and a better stereo (the option stereo has pretty poor sound quality)

2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I think this van is pretty to look at but not much else given teh $$ you pay to own it there aren't a lot of fun features and if you think about cutting costs by not having the higher end AC/Heat package because it is a small van think again, it takes forever to cool down or warm up this van. The vents under the front seat are not large enough or powerful enough to control the temp. It is very small, can be very cramped in the front with average size adults in both seats. Overall good handling but definitly sacrifice space and comfort in this van.


Favorite Features

rear windows go down


Suggested Improvements

increase the power of the vents to warm/cool the back of the van or else add additional vents under the middle seats

2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

It's a great van. Fuel efficiency could be better. After 20k miles, it's still very solid. Factory Dunlop tires are crap. Coolant reservoir seems to overflow a bit since new. Easy to maintain (mainly fluid changes).


Favorite Features

rolldown windows, tumble down rear.


Suggested Improvements

smaller gear handle, better tires, fuel efficiency.
