2004 Mazda MPV Minivan ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought this van a month ago and we love it - the only thing that I see as a problem is that the gear shift is too big and the windshield wipers shift is on the same side. The gear shift should be smaller and the windshield wiper shift should be on the side where the lights are. Other than that it is a great van and would highly recommend it.

2004 Mazda MPV Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is our second MPV and this one is great. I like the electric doors, rearview mirror that darkens, DVD, and this one gets better gas mileage than our 2001 did. We've been getting 22 mpg in town driving. It's quiet and rides nicely.


Favorite Features

The electric doors, rearview mirror, controls on dash for radio and cruise control.


Suggested Improvements

Middle seats that fold down into floor.

2004 Mazda MPV Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just bought an MPV. Great value/features for the price. We have an LX with the LX Plus package, traction control, side airbags, roof rack and power side doors. Love the look of it. Adequate power and very quiet inside. We like the overall size, although there could be a little more leg room in the 2nd row. The fact that the gearshift blocks the radio isn't good but is offset somewhat by the steering wheel controls. Parking brake shouldn't be on the floor, it blocks access to the rear. Full removeable center console would be nice. Transmission a little clunky switching from 1st to 2nd. We are very happy with it so far.


Favorite Features

Fold flat rear seat, steering wheel radio controls, power doors, sliding seat in 2nd row, base stereo is of good quality. Van is very quiet with good visibility.


Suggested Improvements

Why standard rear air but not heat? Gearshift shouldn't block radio. A little more legroom would be good.

Review

I pondered a while about which minivan to purchase and test drove Odyssey, Sienna and MPV. In the end I decided on MPV because of its size and its cost. MPV's size is just right - can fit a lot of stuff, but handling and parking is like that of a sedan. We had this van for a few weeks and it's been great. It really is fun to drive. My wife, who was very worried about driving a minivan is perfectly comfortable with it now. So far I didn't notice any problems with the car (like mentioned missed gear shifts). Finally, it is 3-4 K cheaper to comparably equipped Odyssey!


Favorite Features

The way it looks - I think it is quite sporty (for a minivan at least); The right size - enough room and it is not a huge elephant; Luxurious interior - m-u-u-u-c-h better than more expensive Sienna; It's cheaper than competition; Fun to drive


Suggested Improvements

Aircon doesn't seem to be that powerful (So. California summer) - it cools the car eventually but not as quick as my sedan; The ride is a little harder (i.e. feel the road bumps more) than Odyssey's
