2004 Mazda MPV Minivan 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.
