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


Review

I was looking for a replacement for my
1994 Miata as my primary vehicle.
Looked at sedans, SUVs, and minivans
and decided the MPV offered the most
bang for the buck. It drove nice, was
quiet, had good fit and finish, and
the LX with the LX Upgrade package,
traction control, and the 4 seasons
package had everything I wanted. I'm
6 feet tall and the van had plenty of
creature comforts for me. My garage
is small but the MPV's "footprint" is
actually smaller than some sedans.
The seats are very versatile and I can
handle them 'by myself'... which was
important as a single female.


Best Features

Smooth transmission and everything I need at my fingertips. The air conditioner cools it down in notime... hope the heater works as well in the winter time.


Worst Features

I wish they would make a commuter version... dump the 3rd row kiddie seat and put in some nice big seats in the back. A 4 seater that has "living room" for the occupants.

Review

We 24 hour test drove ALL of the 2004
minivans available in our area. Toyota,
Honda and Mazda were top ranking for
us. The toyotas and hondas were very
hard to find, as they are popular this
year. The Nissan was a good van, but
the queer interior was too much to get
past. We eventually chose the Mazda MPV
based on reliability, price and our
test drive. We were overall more
satisfied with the Mazda. Visabilty is
much better that all the others and the
overall drive was pleasing. We relied
heavily on the Consumer Reports ratings
for reliability. If you are "on the
fence" we would definately recommend
the Mazda MPV. Good Luck!


Best Features

Side sliding middle row seat (works well when using child safety seats), Middle door windows retract, Visability while driving, flat folding rear seat.


Worst Features

More bag hooks in rear well, Tether and Anchor for child safety seats in all 3 position on rear seat.
