One solid family mover

2003 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
We bought this van new 3 years ago and 50K miles later we have had no problems. This is very refreshing after our last van, a 98 Windstar was one problem after another. Pick-up is adequate. It cruises down the highway very well.
Reliablity and dependability, nothing but oil changes and tires so far. Keyless entry and remote doors are a must for people with young children, so you can get the little ones out of the parking lot and into the van. I also like the size of this van. All other vans are a lot like a school bus
Fold away middle row seats. Also the factory tires were too performance based and should have been all weather.
