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!


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

This is our 2nd MPV.Had 93 model for 10 years and been shopping, narrowing the finalists to Odysessy, Sienna, and MPV. Decided the best price/value would be the MPV and feel we made the right decision. The 04 model gets better gas mileage than our previous MPV. Rear windows is a plus and the tail gate rear seat is a winner with the kids. Went to a drive in movie and they loved this feature. Have taken one vacation trip and the handling was flawless. Read some of other consumer reports on the MPV prior to buying and found many of the negatives to be unfounded.


Favorite Features

Fold down rear seat; tail gate feature; size is perfect, not too bulky like the others; better than expected gas mileage. Good pep from the engine.


Suggested Improvements

Fold down second seat. Tinted windows as standard.
