A senior's opinion of MPV
By fredsw on
Vehicle2002 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI have renamed my MPV. It is now
a "Mature People Vehicle". So far it
has been very user friendly for us. We
are senior citizens and when we started
looking for a new car it became obvious
that it would serve so many uses for
us. It is quick, comfortable,fun to
drive(I am past the sport car period),
tight and easy to enter and exit. It is
plush enough and has as many features
as a luxury car, but handles chores
with ease.Mine is a 2002 ES with almost
all options.The gas mileage could be
better, but it stays within EPA
range.The climate control is very
effective, considering our heat this
summer. It can freeze you out!
Best FeaturesWe enjoy the power doors, fold under rear seat(which we usually have in the storage position)and ease of getting in and out. We also appreciate the unique feature of the rear windows going down, like a car. It's easy to maneuver when we shop, but with loads of carrying ability.
Worst FeaturesBetter illumination of some of the switches.Slightly larger rear view mirrors and a better situation with the gear shift lever. It obscures the some of the dash in the "D" position.
