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!
