Too many mechanical problems
By Jim on

Vehicle

2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

The 3.0l engine and 5 speed gives the MPV a great drive. Fit and finish is good. But at 60,000 miles I have needed to replace ignition coils, have had numerous transmission problems and underside of the hood has rusted into swiss cheese. My MPV also seems to wreck rear tires, has a small coolant leak and the door locks don't work anymore. Exhaust fell apart at 40,000 miles. I expect to have problems with an older vehicle, but have never had problems like this with anything I've ever owned before. I love the car, but not as much as my mechanic.

Best Features

Performance: Engine is powerful, transmission is good when working properly. Nimble handling for a minivan.

Worst Features

Vehicle is no longer manufactured. Watch out for the coils on this 3.0 engine and stay away from this transmission.
