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


Review

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.

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


Review

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!


Best Features

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 with subwoofer.


Worst Features

Add a spoiler, HID headlights, sun visors for the sides of the front driver and passenger, not just one visor for each.

2003 Mazda MPV Minivan ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

It is fun safe, and spaces the kids out
well to eliminate fighting! Manuvers
great, love the looks, upohlstery is
like a luxury car! I had Toyota's for a
long time, and they kept getting
cheaper, and breaking. So glad I
investigated vans on this site and
others for 6 months, and choose this
one. The paint doesn't come off from
bugs like all the Toyotas, and the ride
is smooth


Best Features

Interior quality. Keyless remote works far away. Needed the panic botton in the middle of the night,& it scared people. Windshield doesn't fog up like other vehicles. Car seat is held really tight,& isn't in the way. Love radio steering controls,& everything about it.


Worst Features

The gas tank opens where the slidding door is, and could be dangerous when pumping gas, but the other vans have this problem too. The center console flips shut easy, and it isn't safe to keep a drink on it. I would buy this van again in a heartbeat!!!

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


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.
