Great Bang for the Buck

2004 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Our MPV has been great. We saw it as the best blend of performance, handling, styling and utility available for the money. The only issues thus far have been a 'jerking' in the transmission on occasion. My understanding is that Mazda is aware and that there is a fix. We just have to bring it in. Overall, no major complaints. Build quality is excellent. No rattles or squeaks even!

Best Features

Suspension: Handles great. Most minivans are big and heavy. The MPV handles like a sport-van which is nice for those making a transition from a car to a van but don't want a bowl of jelly when taking curves.

Worst Features

Mazda needs to add a switch to turn on all the lights inside the van. Also, an auto locking feature would be nice. Stock sound system is horrible. 17" Touring Tires should be standard. The stock 16's are a bit small and Dunlops ride a bit harsh.
