2003 Mazda MPV Minivan LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought it new in Jan 03. 13 years later and 190,000 miles it's still running great. The only issues I've had was the ignition coils going other than that normal wear and tear that should be addressed. My coworker has the exact same model and has 289,000 on his.

Review

When my wife and I were looking to
trade our prized Civic Si for a MiniVan
we looked at several different models
and manufacturers. Honda was obvious
and so was Toyota (2004 Sienna) but the
real show stopper for us was the MPV LX
with the Tow package. It just handled
more like our Si then the others. It
wasn't so large that parking would be
an issue and I thought it was every bit
as sharp looking as the other two
vehicles already mentioned. The
deciding factor however was the price.
0% financing, no payments for 90 days,
the best value for our trade in and
free maintenance for 3 years sealed the
deal for us.


Best Features

Smoking hot deal, Exterior lines, Handleing - especially with the 16 inch alloys, Ride comfort adn aggressive engine.


Worst Features

None that I can think of yet.

Review

I hated thinking of spending $23- $28k
for a Sienna or Odyssey (SUV's with
room are even higher) ! Found a
great "in-between" bargain in the MPV.
It is definitely smaller than your
standard minivan on the outside but
inside I was amazed how much it had to
offer . Even in their base SV model you
get ABS, disappearing 3rd seat, sliding
side by side captains chairs, stereo
control on the steering wheel, etc,
etc ! What really swung me over were 2
things. 1) You can get this car for
under 20k. and 2) They beefed up the
engine to 200hp and it is smooth as
silk. We took it on a 10 hour trip to
Maine 2 days after we bought it and
realized this was a great choice.


Best Features

Disappearing 3rd seat. Tons of headroom, sliding middle seats (bucket to bench), ABS standard.


Worst Features

Gas mileage about 21-23mpg on the trip to Maine, fully loaded with AC running would have like to have seen 25+ given the smaller size and stronger engine.

Review

Love this vehicle! Fun to drive, lots
of power and has more standard features
than any other van I test drove within
$3000 of my purchase price. That
includes the Honda, Toyota and Chrysler
vans! Most will say the Honda is the
best van on the market. I say test
drive the MPV and you may change your
tune. Plus, you will pay the dealership
at least $6000 less.


Best Features

Engine performance and seating arrangement options.


Worst Features

Gear shift is too long and blocks radio controls. This is not much of an inconvenience since the driver has radio controls on the steering wheel.
