Just purchased a new LX MPV. We were
sold on the handling, reliability,
quadruple 5-star safety rating, sporty
look and all the cool features at a
very reasonable price (22k with
rebate). We bought one with power
sliding doors, roof rack, 4-seasons
package, fog lights, rear step plate,
side airbags and traction control. Got
it at invoice price and $ 2000 rebate.
We were turned off by the attitude of
Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna
salespeople, who demanded MSRP or more.
Mazda salespeople were much more polite
and helpful. Mazda needs to market this
minivan a lot more.
Pwr sliding doors, fog-lights, fold-
down third row, removable second row
seats, audio & cruise controls on the
steering wheel, 16" alloy wheels, 4 pwr
windows, rear heater and a/c controls.
Quite roomy even though people says
it's small. Fits really well in our 2-
Better gas mileage - always a good
thing now that Fuel prices are so high.
I need to upgrade our family to a
larger vehicle, we where drive a
Toyota Tacoma Double cab Truck
and that was our base for the quality
we wanted in the new car/van.
We found the Mazda to be a Great
Match, it had the style the wife
wanted and the features I wanted for
the family. The fit and finish seem to
be very good, and the engineering
seems to be well thought out, great
engine power really makes it move on
the high way and the handling is
almost sports car like.
We really donít have any one favorite
feature, we see a great package for
the family, but if I had to pick, its
7 passenger capacity and great sound
system and DVD player for the kids.
Larger armrests, and a center well or
some kind of storage space between the
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.
Smoking hot deal, Exterior lines,
Handleing - especially with the 16 inch
alloys, Ride comfort adn aggressive
Had a Voyager and replaced the
transmission. Had a caravan and
replaced the tranny twice. Five
trannies between two vehicles. Spoke
to friends about this. Astonished to
learn that they too had replaced the
trannies on their American vans. That,
to me, is inexcuseable.
I am really pleased with the Mazda.
Nice fit and finish on interior and
exterior. Alloy wheels really enhance
the look. Great stereo. Smooth ride
and the 3 Liter engine is just right.
This choice was a no brainer. A small
van but about as big as a full size SUV
(but without the guilt !) Easily the
best valued van of the Odessey \
Sienna\ MPV grouping.
Excellent handling, cornering, a lot of
power (0-60mph est. 8.2 sec.), stopping
is tight, body style is great for a
minivan (even look better in person than
photo), a lot of room for 7 people, or 4
people with bikes, I love it, nice to
drive and cruise around town, easy to
park, very good value!
GFX package for sporty appearance, 17
inch alloys, nice tires, cornering,
powerful engine (IT REALLY ZOOMS!!)
Nice "thrumbing-down" third-row seat.
Electronic socket. DVD system. Stereo
Add a spoiler, HID headlights, sun
visors for the sides of the front driver
and passenger, not just one visor for
