30 Day Report
By glideslopes on
2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Well, I wanted to wait 30 days before posting
my review. We just love our MPV. We had a
Quest prior to this. The size was nice for us.
We did consider going larger to the Ody, but
the price of the MPV was simply a much
better value for us. It is extremely well
engineered, built, and uses high quality
materials throughout. We did not feel there
were any quality advatages to the Ody, and
resale is not a huge issue to us as we keep
our vans 6 years and put around 150,000 on
them. We were fortunate that we found a
vehicle meeting our needs on the lot. The
DW and I actually attempt to out maneuver
each other these days to see who takes the
MPV on an event.
Roll down side windows. Ease of use and
design of 3rd row seat. Sliding second row
seat. Outside visibility from driving position.
High build quality, very attractive styling.
Very carlike during maneuvers. Very high
reliability rate. Drivetrain is very smooth.
Brakes are outstanding.
Move gearshift lever. Blocks view of radio at
times. 17" rims std. Better lumbar support in
drivers seat. Storage pockets on backs of
both front seats. Raise 3rd seat 1" from the
