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.
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.
Fold down second seat. Tinted windows
This van is Great. It is fun to drive
and is comfortable for my 12 year old
and her friends. It is everything
Mazda gives it's automobiles. My 12
year old said I don't look like a
soccer/softball mom in this van. I
drove other mini vans and this one was
the best fit for our family.
The ride and handling is great. The
auto open doors makes shopping easy.
The only thing I would like is for a
more decorate paint combo would really
set this van apart from the rest.
