2003 MPV LX - Bought New
By Tommy C. on
2003 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
My MPV was bought new and now has 143K miles on it. It has had all the issues that others stated here. Check Engine light is a regular happening! Catalytic Converter issue that I will ignore until the end! Replaced the two common coils in front - water issue/design - stupid! Leaking rear AC antifreeze tubes - under warranty at 130K - thanks Mazda! Tubes were rusted gone! transmission issues - reprogrammed in 2004 and seems to be ok since. Rust around rear wheel wells AND bottom seals of front doors! Happened at 35K miles in beginning! Worst design - no power lock button on pass.side door! No dimmer over-ride to switch on inside lights after 10 Minutes! Ugh! AC is weak! Heater is weak.
Exterior Styling still looks good. Interior dash layout is good - always liked that the best of all.
Too late. Vehicle is not distr. here now. Quality improvement - metals, etc. is needed!
