New to the minivan
By prlamz on
2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
We now have 600 miles on our new MPV and feel very good about our choice so far. We had planned on buying an Odyssey but, luckily, did not find one in time. We were a little anxious to drive a behemoth. The MPV feels like a car. It takes less place in our garage than the Volvo station wagon it replaces. The power of the engines makes us long for a manual transmission.
Driveability, handling, fun.
A independent clock would nice, as would a better random mode on the cd-changer. Of course reshaping the gear shifter is a must. A real spare tire, disk rear brakes and greater opening of the sliding doors would also be appreciated.
