Good value for the money
By SnapRolls on
2004 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
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.
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
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.
