We like our 2002 MPV
By Don on
2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
We bought this car for unusual reasons: it would fit in our garage (was shorter than most minivans), a 6 footer could fully lay out on the floor in back of the first row seats, and the mileage rating was pretty good. It has more than met our needs, and we regularly get 21-22 mpg at 70-80 mph on trips, and not too much less in city driving.
Now that we have had the car, it has much exceeded expectations. It is reliable, fun to drive, very comfortable, and useful in all the situations that one can imagine using it: stylish to camping. The flip-down back seat works well, and my wife can even remove/replace the middle seats.
