Well designed compact minivan
By madhatter on
2003 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
We've owned the MPV for just over two
months and it's been great. Very quiet
on the inside, you can just about hear
the horn. Love the third row seat and
the sliding door roll down windows are
especially popular with my kids. The
well for the third row seat holds
grocery bags excellently well. Fit and
finish are excellent.
The ride is relatively sporty - not in
the league of my Ford Contour with its
wide tires and stiff suspension - but
there is noticable body roll in turns.
The interior is quite ergonomic except
for the fact that the column shifter
partly hides the volume control and
sometimes I have tried to "shift" the
turn signal lever.
