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

Review

I absolutely have loved this vehicle until this week. Bought it new off the lot, invested in all the recommended maintenance. So easy to handle, with a sportier look than most mom-vans. I have loved its versatility; it has been spacious enough inside for 2 kids and a dog on many 1,000-mile round trips. No problems, but last week stopped cold in the middle of a busy road. Two dealers haven't been able to isolate the problem, but we're getting a new (refurbished) $3,000 engine. Thought it was the coil, but replacing that didn't help. Now I don't trust that it won't do the same thing to me somewhere else! Really thought doing so much preventive maintenance would put us better off than this

Favorite Features

The back storage area is really deep, even with all seats up and functional. Love the handling, easy to corner and dependable when you need to gun it. Love that when all seats are out, it's so roomy, and even just letting the back seat down gives you lots of room to carry stuff from Home Depot!

Suggested Improvements

Others are right about the gear shift; it's in the way. Would have been helpful to have rear heat sometimes, but the rear air controls are really nice for kids
