great minivan, not so great engine.
By migyride on
2004 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have the lx version with all kinds of
upgrades.The van is well balanced as
far as control and comfort are
concerned.the one weakness of this van
is the loud under-horse powered engine.
the engine is adequate but thats about
it. It growls and sounds like its
always working too hard,also the gear
shifter should be repositioned.
Everything else about the van is an
exceptionally superb deal.wish they had
engine options, or a mazda built not
ford built engine.
powered rear windows, large sun
roof,powered sliding doors,minivans
manners on the road.
better, smoother, quiter, engine.wider
stance, and interior. maybe a
family/sport version like the mazda 6.
