So far, so good

2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Coming from a fully loaded V8 Explorer,
I am missing some nice little features
like puddle lamps, auto on/off lights,
and, strangely, door lock button on
passenger side. But overall, I'm
happy. Didn't want a minivan but this
is a good compromise if you need one.
Size-wise, it drives about the same as
the Explorer, except without the
bumpiness. I don't notice the power
loss coming from a V8 too much. The air
conditioner is already making a
rattling noise, so I'm hoping that
turns out okay.
Easy to drive, appearance, seating
flexibiliy. Tumble under and side by
slide is great. Gas mileage seems good
Door lock button on passenger side!!!
Stereo is very hollow. Cruise controls
should be buttons on the wheel, not a
lever. Also, sliding doors don't lock
if open when lock button is pressed.
The door must be closed in order for it
