When I first heard the term "Body of a
Minivan, Soul of a Sports Car" I was
quite sceptical, 'til I test drove it.
I tried the Sienna and Oddysey, but the
MPV really had the bargain I was
looking for. For the price of a
somewhat "middle class" Sienna, I can
get an MPV that's fully loaded, and I
mean the works,leather, traction ctrl,
sunroof.. everything! Handling is
awesome. The V6 is strong & it's as
zippy as my Golf GTI, but less
problematic =). I found out that the
MPV is the only minivan here today made
in Japan (the rest are US made) it has
great resale value too.

Performance is another thing: I never
drove a minivan as zippy as this
I'm all for Japanese Quality, it's
reliable and last forever!
I really think Mazda should bring back
it's AWD concept on the MPVs. Optional
Navigation system would be nice and
bigger luggage space. Otherwise, leave
everything the way it is.. LOve the
