Good Value for a Minivan
By wordslug on
2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
First, the bad news. We had to
completely replace the auto
transmission within the first year of
ownership. Otherwise, this has been a
great vehicle for our family of 5.
Looks good, drives well, has nice
features like sliding middle seat,
windows that open, folding rear bench.
The size is about right, and the
driving experience is car-like.
Folding seats, large opening windows
for middle seats, 6-CD changer, get-up-
and-go power. Lots o' cupholders and
Ergonomics of gear-shifter and dash are
very poor, as many others have pointed
out. Rear bench seatback is quite low
for adults or teenagers, though
headroom is good.
